I would appreciate any advise on selling hand crafted jewelry. I
don’t want to "mass produce my jewelry, but would like to make a
profit and decent in come from my craft.I recently read the article
in the Feb 2010 issue of Lapidary Journal “Pricing and the Internet"
and a certain statement blew me away… it is " As a business model,
25 cents on the dollar is a pretty good rule of thumb. for example,
if you’re shipping 100,000 of merchandise, you’re taking home 25,000
to live on” Do you all agree on this pricing?
( PS…really don’t want to beat a dead horse on the pricing issue,
I know there are many posts dealing with this,just wondering if you
all agree with the above statement?) and also, as far as venues…
Juried festivals?, approach galleries / high end gift shops? right
now I’m planning on trying Etsy, I have one item listed there
Thanks for any insights!
