Direct-Selling Jewelry company, Stella & Dot is an Inc 500 Fastest-Growing Company. It is a social selling company that creates flexible opportunities for women to be work from home entrepreneurs.

They sell exclusively through friendly Stella & Dot Stylists online and at in home trunk shows. Customers and hostesses adore the style, and each Stylist is able to build their own flexible, modern business on a foundation of irresistible product and exceedingly personal service.

Moving ahead from their Business model, I check out their Jewelry section. They really do have awesome Jewelry pieces to offer. I loved their fall collection 2011.

Getting started with Jewelry Making – Inspiration Ideas

by roberta on Nov.10, 2009, under Business Tips, Jewelry Making

Creating Jewelry to me was a hobby for a long time. During the economic crisis and because of health issues I had to change my life spending much time at home. Accustomed to the rhythms of my “lost” work and life very intense, I didn’t knew what to do with my time. And then I started to use this time to create new jewelry.

  1. The first thing was to get informed on trends and styles that were trendy, surfing the Net and looking for new inspirations.
  2. Then I subscribed to various magazines and purchased books that explained and illustrated techniques and materials.
  3. Visiting the sites of designers and craftsmen who were doing this work in a professional manner, was very useful too.

I started to apply what I learned. In the beginning – I was interested in too many subjects, types and techniques which resulted in wasting time, energy and materials in different experiments. I questioned myself, trying to identify what really I wanted to do.

Now I have fixed some steps to give an orientation to my work and this has allowed me to be clear not only about the starting point, but also about the goal to reach. I tried to use the work experience acquired over many years of decorating and art, studying art and drawing on this experience to create my own lines.

Part of the objects I create are commercial but always personal. This is my list by which I try to get inspiration from –

  • Colors
  • Favorite artists
  • Favorite books
  • Songs
  • Poems
  • Specific eras
  • Opposites (good and bad, vices and virtues, white and black, etc.)

Whats your breakdown list when you plan to create something?
