Dear friends, Have been in the retail & craft jewelry market for 15
years, make and sell lots of beaded jewelry. Have now been
approached by another designer to help her go national with a line
of her upscale beaded necklaces. I know many suppliers in the New
York area but do not know if there are contract houses for
production - like the stringing. Where do the people who sell 2000
necklaces to Chico having the work done - is it all overseas or do
we have shops here. The fashion jewelry industry is very new to me.
Also looking for suggestions on contacting buyers for large chains
like Littmans, Zales - etc. I'm feeling a bit overwhelmed, so any
advice would be appreciated.
