Wow, it’s been a while, huh?
Ok, well lots of things have happened. I lost my day job, started studying to obtain my teaching license, and am considering moving from Jersey City to a suburb outside of Nashville.
And that’s all within the past MONTH.
2013 started out to be quite a challenge, however, it was the kick in the pants that I needed to get my life on track.
My husband and I were running at the track this morning and I was telling him about my new service that I am offering called Jewelry on Demand.
I go to people’s homes (or they come to mine) and I display samples of my unique, handmade jewelry.
My clients point to what they want, I sit down and make it then and there on the spot, in front of them.
There really truly is something behind seeing the product come to life in front of you. I initially got the idea a couple of years ago at a flea market.
I was at a flea market trying desperately to sell my jewelry. A little girl came over and told me how pretty a pair of my earrings were but she wanted to see them in red.
I always bring along my tools and some supplies with me to flea markets so that I have something to do while I wait pathetically for clients, lol! It also comes in handy if a client wants to adjust something, like changing the length of a necklace, for example.
Anyway, I crack out my tools and supplies and get to work making a pair of earrings for the little girl.
Her mother came over and asked me what I was doing. I explained that her daughter wanted to see a different version of the earrings and the mother then said, “Can you make me a pair in blue??”
So I got right on that and before I knew it, I had a line of people waiting for me to create something right there in front of them, to their specifications. It was SO MUCH FUN!
I coined the term “Jewelry on Demand” because that’s pretty much what it is! You demand, I create.
Imagine throwing your daughter a birthday party where the guests walk away with unique, one of a kind jewelry handmade before their eyes….or jewelry that they make themselves under my instruction!
Movement was a key part of this design.
So my husband said, “So you’re throwing JODI parties. Jewelry On Demand Inc. parties!”
Now why didn’t I think of that???
He’s clever like that, so I’ll keep him : )
I am very VERY pleased to announce that JODi parties are now happening and if you live in the NYC metropolitan area, I’d be delighted to come on over!
If you’re the kind of person that doesn’t feel like stressing over having company – come on over to my place instead! I’ll put on some coffee or tea, we’ll have some snacks and I’ll get cranking with some one of a kind designs specifically for you!
