I took this workshop the last time it was offered and I am so glad I
did. The area of marketing my jewelry, no matter how much I read
about it, is still a great puzzle to me. PR 101 put into focus what
I should be concentrating on and also helped with areas that I knew I
should be working on but did not know exactly how to go about it. In
addition to that I got invaluable opinions on my promotional material
from someone with many years experience in both advertising and
jewelry. Thanks for offering this great service, DeDe.

share my experience about the workshop for anyone thinking about
taking it.

DeDe, Have you thought of offering your class in other places beside
NY City?

Not to put Kate Wolf (in Portland Maine) on the spot, but she has
had other great teachers come and offer classes at her studio. She
also, trades with Blaine Lewis, at the New Approach School. Those
might be 2 areas of the country where you would get more exposure and
those of us who couldn’t get to NYC would also. Sounds like your
class is a real eye opener and a benefit. Just a thought.

it was snow!
