Home Based Jewelry Business


I thumb this down, though I worry it’ll make me look like a big meanie.

I organised a craft fair last year, and more than two thirds of the applications were jewellery. Of those, more than three quarters was completely indistinguishable as individual work.

My concern is that people reading this will be caught up in the airy enthusiasm, and jump in with both feet. Be aware that it takes something really special and inventive to stand out from the bead-happy crowd. My impression is that most wannabe jewellers don’t even make back the cost of their materials.
