Every bride wants her wedding to strike the perfect balance between being timeless and up-to-date. One great way to do that is to incorporate accents that are popular in the world of fashion. You can draw your inspiration not only from bridal magazines, but also from things that are hot in the broader world of fashion and design.
Is there a niche market for your handmade jewelry you may have been overlooking? Could you adapt your jewelry to meet the demands of particular niche market?
Group your items so people looking for certain designs will easily find the matching handmade bracelets and handcrafted necklaces for the handmade earrings they have chosen.
This isn’t a difficult market to get in to, but it is a competitive one. It’s not hard to learn to make necklaces, bracelets, and earrings, but it’s to find a niche that sets you apart from the mass produced jewelry that’s already available. For example, you could focus on making necklaces and bracelets for petite people with small arms and necks. There’s a market for this since many small people with tiny bones have a hard time finding jewelry that fits. To learn how to make sellable handmade jewelry, take a class at a local bead store or get an instructional video online. Once you learn the technique, you can make a simple pair of earrings in under five minutes.
Don’t forget about friendly leather bracelets that can be handmade. Just tie a few leather strings of similar colors to each other – here is your simple but warm gift to a friend.
Wine Charms- This is one of the newer ideas when it comes to uses for clay beads. These are basically single beads on what amounts to be a small hoop earring. They clip around the stem of your wine glass and rest at the bottom. Their functional purpose is to help everyone remember whose wine glass is whose. But they also are very decorative and can make for great conversation starters.
Other types of bridal jewelry you might want to consider include necklaces, bracelets, and earrings. One thing to keep in mind is that you want everything to match. Therefore, if you have picked out pearl necklaces for your bridal jewelry, you want both the earrings and bracelets to include pearls too. One rule of thumb is, in the instance of pearls, if the necklace has a string of pearls, you want the bracelets and earrings to just have a pearl accent, remember, less is more.
For an exquisite Mothers gift, there is no match for a 14kt white gold necklace with a pair of diamond baby shoes dancing in the center of a diamond encrusted heart. Words are vehicles of love but can never express the depth of your heart and the wealth of happiness that she brings you. You can say it in diamonds.
