I’m Fred Rossman, I’ve been lurking for a month or so. I now have
a question that I need feedback on.
My son and I opened a store a little over a year ago. We now find
ourselves overwhelmed with work. The repairs and custom are
flooding in. We are looking to hire a jeweler to help us. We have
our eye on a man with the experiance we need. We have checked out
his work and like what he can do. Were not sure just how to go
about paying him and just how to set this up. He will also be
helping with custom work. We would like to hear from others on
what would be fair for both store owners and jewelers. I am open
to questions and will appricate any comments anyone has.
I’ve been making jewelry for 23 years. I did almost all silver
for about 12 years and then started doing goldsmithing and
diamond setting, which I have been doing now for 11 years. I’ve
worked out of back rooms and basements but enjoy having a store.
It’s a whole new ball game now. Thank you Fred Rossman
