Many of the trade shows have a bulletin board where you can advertise
and look for reps. You can also look or advertise in the back of
jewelry trade magazines such as National Jeweler, Another magazine is
Accents or Accessories. Check out the trade magazines that are
delivered to the gift show and accessory shows in New York City. The
reps are usually given their samples from my experience and a good rep
can work from samples and a catalogue. But they do need some samples
so the clients can see the quality of work.
