Tips For Jewellery Party Success

by Jeanne Lyons

I have had my own jewelry business, Lyons Den Designs, for a little over a year. I think I had a pretty typical beginning. The idea was sparked by two stones I fell in love with while visiting my sister in Colorado. In prior years I had bought gemstone jewelry from the area. But 2 years ago I fell in love with two stones that I decided I’d try to make into pendants. Upon my retirement six months later from teaching 1st grade for 33 years, I had a one-on-one 1 hour class on wire wrapping. I spent about 6 months learning more about craft from DVD instructions, various on-line classes and bead store classes followed by lots of practice. I found I loved choosing stones and creating jewelry. My friends and relatives were impressed with my finished pieces that I gave them as gifts. They also kept telling me that I should sell it. So… I decided to try making jewelry as a retirement hobby to make a little extra money and put my creative bent, love of stones and making jewelry to a practical use.
