There’s a huge possibility that my husband and I will be moving to
New Zealand this fall.
I have a small jewelry company based in the states and am trying to
decide to keep my assistant in the states to prep and ship orders,
or to bring the whole shabang down to New Zealand (Auckland to be
My line is entirely cast, so I’d need to find a production caster,
as well as a bench worker for soldering and flush setting.
I’m curious if it’s even possible to do all that I need to do in New
Zealand and then ship to the states.
Does anyone have any sources they are wiling to share for casting,
soldering, setting, polishing? I currently live in Los Angeles so my
sources are easily found and highly competitive. I’m thinking in a
smaller city this won’t necessarily be the case.
If anyone has any helpful info for me, I’d be really appreciative.
I am really toying with the idea of keeping my assistant on here in
the states and having her do all the production, but my business is
so up and down, busy times, slow times, it’s going to be hard for me
to guage how much I"ll need her and impossible for me to help in
during the busy times.
Thanks a bunch,
