there are many, many craft shows in this country but most aren’t
that good for highend jewelry. There are three good compendiums on
the market, ArtFair Sourcebook, Dr. Harris’s list and the Fairs and
Festivals book by the U. of Mass. extension program.
These books list and rate all kinds of craft shows and it may be
hard to figure ou;which ones are good for fine jewelry. You’ll also
find good by reading the Crafts Report monthly…very
useful info and good reviews of all kinds of shows.
The only guidebook that lists shows specifically for fine jewelry
designers is the one that my company publishes and it’s
accompanied by four more categories of marketing -
design competitions, trade shows, trade magazines and associations.
Further, the deadlines, dates and reminders for all of these shows,
fairs, applications, free publicity options, etc. are filled into a
calendar format so you can follow along all year and get your
marketing and PR done efficiently.
If you want more info on our Designers Annual Planning Guide
please email me directly at @FranklyCin. If you need to know
of a certain show in a certain area or whatever, I’d be happy to
make a suggestion.
