After doing everything jewelry from wholesaling, retail, sourcing
and much more, I have decided to go the way a fledgling jewelry
designer, and I wanted to hopefully find someone familiar with
starting a small avant-garde jewelry design studio. Not that I will
not be a jeweler proper, but rather a designer selling to boutiques
that are fashion orientated. The pieces will primarily consist of
wire and I'm not seeking to do smithing right away.
If anyone would be willing to give me some tips or assistance it
would be greatly appreciated.
I have some experience with this in the past, but would like to hear
other's tips on approaching boutiques, building "buzz," etc.
