The Handmade Jewelry Crafts Market

I have been working craft shows off and on for about 20 years and in 3 different states.

I recently reentered the craft show market with my homemade jam and jelly. (Shameless plug

The biggest thing I have noticed is the FLOOD of handmade jewelry. Craziest thing I have ever seen. If you are thinking about selling handmade jewelry my advice is do not do it. Unless you have come up with something very unique, your chances of selling your crafts and making a profit are slim.

Every show I have attended this fall is approximately 80 percent handmade jewelry. One look at will show you how flooded this portion of the craft market is.

I am always one for following your passion, but if your passion is handmade jewelry, really check out your competition and make sure its a market you want to enter.
