As the summer looms and I realize I can’t put off opening my shop any longer I am realizing the realities of inventory costs. However I believe I have a plan that seems like a good idea. Would it be a good idea if I took pictures of brass and copper pieces and use those pictures to represent gold and rose gold so as to not spend hundreds of dollars and risk the piece not selling? Here’s how it would go: make a ring in copper, Take a few pictures, calculate the cost it would be in 10/14/18 karat rose gold, list the ring, get the order, buy 10 grams 24K and alloy to desired karat it rose gold, make the rose gold piece and send it out.
Is there any problem I am not accounting for?
