Jewelry making is one of the best ways people can make money. While jewelry making is easy, it is fun and an average person can create between 10-25 different jewelry pieces a day depending on the design. But, have you ever wondered what else you can do with wholesale jewelry supplies that can help you make money?
If you haven’t thought about this, it is time to think now. Professional jewelry designers make their creations out of wholesale jewelry supplies, but there are times when all the supplies are not used. Even if you are not a professional designer, it is not hard to learn jewelry making because there are so many tutorials available on the internet. If you have an interest in jewelry designing or making some extra money from the comfort of your home, you can create jewelry making kits and sell them to craft students as well to those who are looking to learn jewelry designing. It is easy to sell your kits online and at fairs and shows.
But, it is important to know how to create your kits from wholesale jewelry supplies. Let’s take a look.
Create categories – you can make kits for different designs or jewelry items. For example, you can make different kits for necklaces, bracelets, anklets, rings and earrings.
Determine supplies – think about the things that will be needed to make that particular item. This can include beads, tools, wire, findings, clasps, etc.
Write instructions – you must include a step by step detail of how the jewelry item is going to be made. Look for simple instructions on the internet and try to design a few pieces by yourself. If it works, you can write down the instructions and include the list of supplies needed and how to go about making the items. Do not copy anything from the internet because online material is often protected by copyright laws. Make the items and then write the instructions on your own keeping the format similar for simplicity.
Design the package – cost effective ways to design the package for your jewelry making kits is to use small boxes and zip lock bags. Also determine how much packaging will cost you.
Calculate overall cost – it is important to determine the overall cost of the kit so you know how much to sell it for and how much profit you can make per kit. If you are a jewelry designer, you usually include your labor charge in the price for a finished piece. But when you create a kit, you cannot keep the price of the kit higher than that of a finished piece. This is because a customer who likes your design may prefer to go with a finished piece that is cheaper than with a kit that requires extra work.
