For many years jewelry has been worn by women as well as men. Earlier years would have seen the majority of jewelry worn by women but nowadays you will see a lot more men wearing jewelry. Men would be more satisfied to wear the metallic jewelry but as for women they would prefer the softer looking more elegant approach.
Jewelry making has been created as long as we can remember. It all started off by hand and using specially designed hand tools. Due to technology and the advanced world we live in now, making jewelry is mostly created by high tech machinery as this is way faster and can produce so much more. Giving the human hand the rest it deserves, and making the whole process of creating this jewelry a lot easier
Jewelry looks so elegant and very classy and this is what attracts people to it. Jewelry Making is very easy to do if you have some direction and it doesn’t hurt to have some passion for jewelry either. Jewelry making can be expensive or inexpensive it all depends on the materials you want to use.
Of course you can use the expensive stones and metals. But this would need specialist tools to cut the material. Using simple beads or wood can give you very effective jewelry. Time will be your major cost. But with practice and learning a few tricks of the trade you will get up to speed.
Jewelry making should have your own unique design and creativity. Whatever material you decide to use, there will be no right way or wrong way of creating your own masterpiece. This will be to your own individual style. When using metal, you can create patterns and textures that will draw people’s attention.
For your work to sell well you will have to have a sophisticated touch with some good design. You can use the sign of the zodiac as a centre piece or from many years ago in the Greek times medallions were worn.
You could even use wood for your jewelry making as this would be much easier to work with and you would not need specialist machines to cut the material. You have more finishing options and designs that you can use with wood. Like paint them in a variety of colours or stain, varnish or even wax to bring out the natural beauty of the grain. Jewelry making can be as subtle or as extravagant as the wearer or creator wants it to be. Just put your own individual style and personality into your Jewelry making.
Jewelry designing is an amazing hobby and it is a rewarding one too if you are able to sell your creations at good prices. Making your own jewelry can be time consuming as well and sometimes you may end up purchasing more supplies than you need. Have you ever considered what you can do with the leftovers if they are of no use to you? Or have you ever thought of the idea of making jewelry designing kits out of the supplies that you already have in hand, but don’t want to make use of them in your personal creations?
Sometimes, it happens that you purchase wholesale jewelry making supplies, but don’t use all of them in your creations because you have already created multiple designs using the same type of beads, clasps, findings, etc. The best thing you can do with the leftover supplies is to sell them off. But, selling them individually will not attract many customers and it will take quite a long time too.
Since you are already a jewelry designer or have experience making your own necklaces, bracelets and earrings, you can make small jewelry designing kits and include a short description of how the items are made in the pack. The kits you make don’t have to include supplies to make fifty or hundred necklaces. They can consist of supplies that are enough for just a pair of earrings, 5 bracelets or 2 necklaces. Keep in mind that jewelry designing is a popular hobby and even people who don’t have any experience in creating jewelry are looking to try jewelry making. Often times, the kits available in stores and online are expensive as they consist of bulk items. Most people who are interested in this craft don’t want to shell out large amounts of money on these kits because there is always a risk of wasting money if things don’t turn out good or if they are no longer interested in jewelry designing after creating a few pieces.
The small jewelry designing kits you make can be sold online or at craft fairs. But, it is essential that you do preliminary work before determining how to put the kits together. Think about how many articles of jewelry you want the buyer to be able to create from the kit. Depending on the number of items, you can sort out how many beads, how many clasps, length of wire or cord and number of jewelry findings will be needed for the whole lot or per each item. You can also try to create the first one on your own so you have an idea of the exact number of jewelry making supplies needed for the kit. Write down a detailed step by step instructional guide and print them on small cards. Place these jewelry making guides within the kits and you are ready to make some quick money from your leftover jewelry making supplies.
