Jewellery Making as a Career

If you love jewellery you have probably had ideas of what would make some great pieces, but that's where it's ended, or maybe you're already a competent jewellery maker but you need some help with the design process, how to market your business or start a career.

This comprehensive Jewellery Making Course will teach you everything that you need to know in order to set up your own Jewellery Making business. There are plenty of books and courses available to show you the hands-on part of the process but this course will fill you on everything else.

What You Will Learn

  • A little bit of history about jewellery (don't worry its only brief and actually quite interesting)
  • Considerations when designing various types of jewellery
  • How to manipulate and treat various materials
  • The equipment and supplies you'll need to create various pieces and how to use these safely
  • How to gain inspiration and follow a design process to turn your ideas from sketches to finished pieces
  • How to go about outsourcing
  • How to set up your business, including fulfilling orders and selling your designs in a variety of ways (including wholesale, craftshows, and setting up an online shop)
  • How to gain employement in the industry

It may sound a little daunting but this Jewellery Making Course covers everything in easy-to absorb-modules, separated into smaller, even more manageble sections that will quickly take you from novice to designer to business owner, all in your own time and at your own pace.

Earn in Your Spare Time or Start a Business

What's especially alluring about designing and selling your own jewellery, is that not only is it a creative use of your spare time but you can set up at home and design pieces in your spare time around a fulltime job or other responsibilities.

Jewellery making is also enjoyable, you can make money from it, and the start up costs are very low. It can even turn into a fulltime career, and this course will aid your journey and answer all your questions along the way.
