Is your jewelry selling?

Forum: Jewelers.Community Site Feedback

I can’t seem to figure it out. Everyone says I make beautiful jewelry, why can’t I sell it? I use plenty of colors, I use good products and I put my all into what I do. There has got to be a reason! If people can not buy your jewelry for $1.00, then they would rather not buy it. I work with people. I give them discounts and all. I get custom orders, but I’m a freelance kind of jeweler. I make what I feel at the time. I have been doing this for seven years. How do you pick one thing that sells? I love that people like what they like but I have put a lot of $ into this and a lot of time. I don’t know what is wrong with my site www.primedesignjewelry.com but I will keep doing this until I see results. I love making jewelry, but a girl gets tired, lol.

I have been doing this along time and every wants everything for nothing. I recommend watch youtube video and selling on line they help. I would sell on Gumtree, facebook markets, do you tube tutorials and sell products at the same time. There are a liat of 50 sites you can sell have some pictures of young and old wearing your jewellery. Just have to get out there hopes this helps kindly Linda

If you are interested to sell out your jewelry product then you post your jewelry on social media sites. Because you design well in all types of jewelry like rings, bracelet so you post in Facebook, Twitter…

I have had the same problem for years. Honestly, a lot has to do with the economy and holidays. I’ve noticed this after setting up an Etsy shop. If the economy is doing well, people will tend to buy more things they don’t need, and if it’s around the holidays, you’ll see a lot more activity, otherwise it’s come and go. I think all of us out here have felt your frustration. It’s hard doing something you love for profit and not being able to rely on it. But I have one strong bit of advice…do not under any circumstances short-sell yourself no matter how tempting it may seem. I worked the craft show circuit with my best friend (also a jewelry maker) for a year, and we could not sell a darn thing to save our lives. We couldn’t figure out why other jewelry makers charging double what we did were making money and we weren’t. Someone finally told me one day that when everyone else charges more and you charge less, they think your product is inferior in some way. They don’t think they’re getting a deal, they think you don’t value your own work so why should they. While you may get a lot of people wanting to pay less, trust me…if they want it bad enough they will pay what it’s worth. People used to tell me that all the time and I’d roll my eyes, but it’s true. I made a chrome diopside necklace and had to charge the most I’ve ever charged, and it sold like snap while all my lowest priced items in my shop haven’t moved at all. ALL of my highest priced necklaces have sold. So stick to it, and don’t underpay yourself. There’s no joy to be had in doing something you like and not even making back what you put into it, let alone not make a profit. I hope it turns around for you! Sending you prosperity vibes!

I have a couple of suggestions: I feel you under price your jewerly. You don’t even get the money for the beads or the time you spent making them. Add Free Shipping, but add the price in the jewelry. Usually $3.00 is good for your size bracelets. Why not try making some with Toggles? Older women like the magnetic ones. Also you have no descriptions. You need to list what you used, what kind of beads, sliders, size of bracelet, whether its elastic or not. If you are using plastic sliders I suggest you use other materials. I show my jewelry on F.B, Twitter, Tumblr, Google. I love Google. I sell Natural gemstone but I also sell my hand crafted jewelry. I also make and sell handcrafted Steampunk Jewelry. You would be surprised to know its my best seller. Check out my store on the handmade jewelry. I have been making jewelry for over 5 years. Do not give up. Its my passion too! By the way Weebly is a free website. You might like to use them. check them out. Check out my store to see my descriptions. www.sharongulezianjewelry.com. Hope I helped.
