If you can gain a following, you can even rent a brick and mortar store-front or buy your own website and do business through those.

Yes, I believe data should only be collected from non-jewelry designers. I think that designers have more knowledge on the subject and therefore know what is involved with handmade jewelry, the types of metals and jewels and such, and so they purchase differently from non-designers.

She has no marketing skills whatsoever or any desire to please anybody at all, and will barely show her art to anybody. I once convinced her to print some of her work and I took it to a local craft fair and sold $400 worth, but money just does not motivate her. But she’s only 16, so maybe when SHE is paying the bills she will see it differently! LOL! But maybe I can use some of this info here when she’s ready to hear it! I am so happy that I randomly visited ur site Thank u so much for sharing all the wonderful ideas. I always assumed that people purchased art because of some weird intangibles that appealed to them, but maybe it’s more psychological than that. This is a really interesting piece. Very well-done, and quite a bit to think about. I want your ring to fit you! I will make every reasonable effort, when possible, to size it perfectly to you. Some rings do not lend themselves easily, or at all, to re-sizing, so please take the time to get professionally sized. Oh, the first time I saw Kirks Folly, I was hooked! Such beautifully designed and creative artsy jewelry! Happy gemstone shopping, and if it’s a Moissanite Engagement Ring you’re looking for, a very big congratulations to you!

My dad loves to sell things on eBay regularly but after listening to him complain about fees, I decided to track down some alternatives for him (which you’ll find below). He now sells across a number of sites which has helped him branch out and remove his dependence on eBay as a selling platform (and he couldn’t be happier). Although, it is not marked, It is probably made of brass with a gold overlay judging from the worn areas of the locket. Look for maker’s marks on the item. Dishware, for example, should have an image on the bottom called a back stamp. You can then look up that stamp. There are many types of, say, dishware that appear similar.
