I am thinking of starting a business selling my handmade jewelry pieces.
What are the best ways to get my jewelry and name out there? I like the idea of selling one-of-a-kind pieces (not making multiples of the same piece) but I'm not sure if that's the best approach.
I also don't have any idea on how to price my jewelry. I would like to make the price appealing to the general public, but not too cheap where I'm not making a profit. I've read so much about pricing, but it's almost too much, and I'm confused on a good method of pricing. My pieces average around $10-$15 in materials.
Then there's the hourly wage to consider. I'm a stay-at-home mother, so I have a hard time pin pointing an hourly wage. I suffer from the problem of not valuing my time enough and not knowing what my time is worth.
Attached is a sample of my work. Thanks for you help!
Whoa Marjorie! You've opened a huge can of worms here. And I know exactly where you're coming from- same position I am in too! I have a ton of information to come- I'll have to add it in in installments.
For now though, you can check out my horribly neglected Jewelry Sweet Spot Blog for jewelry business tips. Here's a link to my article on Pricing Your Handmade Jewelry
