Making Custom Jewelry Can Bring In Extra Cash

Sep 16, 2008
Constructing quality custom jewelry for individual clients can be a great niche to explore if you possess the necessary talent and have a great sense of style and creativity. If you are good at your job you will receive continuous phone calls from clients who would require you to construct special pieces for them or as gifts for others. Making custom jewelry isn't hard, all you need a sense of style and creativity - the skills needed to make jewelry are very easy to learn. Try to create something that stands out and make your client become the center of attention and it must be unique so that when she wears it, she feels proud of wearing a specially crafted piece that no one else has.

The hardest part in working with clients is to design something that they have in their minds which may be different from what you have in yours. Do not risk losing a client by working in their presence and showing them how easy it is to do it themselves. By talking to the clients at length you will know and be able to design custom jewelry that matches them completely. To design a piece that is meant to be given as a gift for someone, you need to ask many questions about the person and if possible, arrange to see them. While uniqueness and exclusivity are the keys to making this type of business successful, speaking regularly with your clients is vitally important too.

Many clients will want you to make custom jewelry using stones or gems that they already have. Your job may just be to beautify a piece that your clients currently own. Before you agree to do the work make sure you have the required ability to do it otherwise you may damage their jewelry. In order to do a good job of improving the piece, find out all you can about the piece and if it has any special meaning to the client.

Supplies of pieces from wholesale sources will have to be purchased to make your custom jewelry. Just make sure that you are buying quality parts and look for sources of unique jewelry making supplies as well - imported pieces are great sources although you will have to quote your client a price before you start, so be careful here. Profit making is the name of the game, so to make sure you make it on your work, so always quote 15 to 30 percent over and above the budget requirements to buy the raw materials for the jewelry. After setting aside 15 to 30 percent, use the remainder as your budget to buy supplies to make the custom jewelry.
