If you’re looking for a fun activity you can turn into a part time business, you could do a lot worse than make jewellery from home. You’ll find plenty of resources online for both raw materials and manufacturing instruction.
There are many different styles and types of jewellery to choose from – bead designs, moulds for silver, goldsmithing and stainless steel items are just a few of them. The key to long term profits is to settle on your own unique style and design principles. Why? Well repeat business will be critical to long term success, and once you’ve sold a piece to someone, you want to have other similar items to offer them later.
Marketing opportunities are numerous. You can sell face to face, from craft fairs, via party plan or online through outlets such as eBay and Etsy.com. You’re unlikely to get rich doing this, but that’s hardly the point with this one.
