Jewellery Business Success Stories – Sassie Gems
by Sarah Cassie
Two years ago I was given the devastating news that at the age of 32 I needed to have a hysterectomy and although this would hopefully be the beginning of the end of years of debilitating abdominal pains, it still felt like my whole world was in the process of being shaken beneath me – I needed something to keep me busy and my mind active from this dreadful news. I’d always had an interest in jewellery and crafts, and this seemed like the ideal hobby to take up for those difficult days that now seemed destine, especially as my doctor had prescribed nothing but total rest for a good six weeks after the operation.

Jewellery Business Success Stories – Pookledo
Interview with Sarah Goode
Pookledo is a very original name, where did it come from?
I read in a marketing guide that a good thing to help you be found on the internet is to have a name that is unique, so I made up the name “Pookledo” as no-one else has that name as the word is made up. If you Google for “Pookledo” you just find me!

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.
