Jewelry Making Business Online

Updated on January 13, 2011

Have you ever wanted to start your own jewelry making business online? This is certainly achievable, providing that you do the proper research to start out. Luckily, we have put together a little guide for you to get started. Before you dive into this incredible form of art, you’ll first want to look around at what other people are doing. Look online for custom necklaces, or do a search on “home made earrings”, and so forth. You’ll see many of the designs available and this will even motivate you to come up with your own necklaces. It is often suggested to stir up at least 3 new pieces to begin with. You can begin jewelry making with simple bead kits, or even buy them in large amounts for a bulk discount. In any case, if you are starting out small – just get the things you will need for now. You can always expand your business as you go alone.

A Jewelry making business will need a Sellers Permit

This is one thing I am constantly asked each day from individuals who want to begin a jewelry shop online or offline. The first thing you will need to do is get the proper permit for selling, even if it is your own product. A seller permit is used to collect taxes and you will need to turn it in to the office or mail the papers in when they are do. Also, most companies that sell wholesale jewelry will need your sellers permit in order for you to buy jewelry in bulk. Now, if you want to sell at the flea market or any market for that matter, a permit is required. Without one, you won’t be able to get in. It is crucial that you have everything you need before starting. Once you are ready to begin, bring items like jewelry display cases, half mannequins for showing off your merchandise, and even box sets. These are great ways to reveal the beauty of your work. Many people will stop by in awe, wanting a lovely earring set for themselves or even a family member.
