Affordable Custom Jewelry
I started making jewelry after being in insurance, accounting, and management fields for 25 years and staying home to be a mom for the last 8 years of my daughters school years. My daughter was getting ready to graduate from high school and I was considering going back to work in the insurance and accounting fields.
My biggest problem was a leg that had been injured in a car accident 4 years earlier. I had a massive blood clot in my right leg, two blood clots in my lungs with tissue damage, I needed to be able to walk around and not sit at a desk all day. I also needed to prop my foot up when I sat at a computer or sat for more than an hour. This would not be easy since the work environments I came from are very rigid and professional. I needed a setting that would allow for flexibility and comfort.
I had been making feather earrings for my daughter and her friends and even sold some of the earrings from the comfort of my home. The girls loved them! I also made beaded and pearl jewelry as gifts for my family. I was also bothered by the huge mark-ups on jewelry in retail stores. My daughter told me about the on-line shops and I soon found Artfire.com. I decided to set up a shop and did better than I expected!
Before long my sister-in-law told me about Etsy.com. I loved Etsy and set up another shop. Since then I have fallen in love with gemstones and metal clay! Now, I am really hooked and determined to make this my second career, one I can do for a very long time! I now understand a little more about the mark-ups to cover vast amount of supply expenses, labor hours, and shipping expenses. It is my hope to continue to offer affordable custom jewelry at a lower mark up due to the fact I am an individual shop owner with fewer overhead expenses!
