Challenges Increase Productivity
What's the challenge?
I challenge myself to create new pieces with the inventory I have in stock and to not buy any more components and findings until I have exhausted my supplies or reached 100 items in my online store.
I enjoy jewelry making. It's the only arts and craft I am truly good at, meaning I can complete a project successfully.
I started making jewelry in 2009. I bought a few supplies and my first jewelry making tools of the trade from Jewelry Beads and Findings. Below are 2 pairs of my very first items of jewelry. I know, the picture quality isn't great.
When my husband came to know what I was doing, he decided to join in the fun. Together we did research online for the best places to get great quality supplies for a good price. After comparing several sites we chose Fire Mountain Gems and Beads (FMG). FMG has tier pricing, the more you buy the more you save--you can guess what happened next. My husband went all out and put his trust in my newly found talent...might as well get serious and make a business of this...that was his way of looking at it.
Jewelry makers have a habit of always adding to their stock even when they are a running out of storage room. There is good reason to buy more than what one has in stock such as in the case of custom orders, sometimes a customer would request something and I don't have all the materials in stock.
