I was selling the earrings for €5, so the whole set, matching bracelet, necklace and earrings, came to €25, which everybody found more than reasonable, and I’m happy and proud to say that I haven’t raised my prices since the beginning. That was in 2005! The sets are still at that price.
I then started to scout around for something nice to put them in, and I found this gentleman in Cork who provided me with gorgeous silver boxes. I then found turquoise blue silk paper to delicately wrap the jewellery in. Then I had business cards made, in turquoise blue, so that they matched the silk paper inside, and contrasted beautifully with the silver box! Et voila!
So I haven’t looked back since and I have been going to every craft fair presenting itself to me and did a lot of jewellery parties, as well as customizing pieces to my client’s requirements, size wise and colour wise.
I also would like to add that I’m using real Swarovski Crystals in all my jewellery.
