Tips to ROCK Gem Show Shopping
You’re not alone! I remember my very first gem show. It was the annual Bead and Button Show in Milwaukee, WI. It was 2005 and I was so excited. I had just begun selling jewelry and was eager to shop the show. I just knew there would be amazing finds not available online or in my favorite local shop. But what I did not plan for was the energetic overload nor did I have any idea how HUGE this show was. As a result I was overwhelmed, I overspent, did not make the best choices (ie I bought dyed and unevenly drilled stones which are not great for consistency in jewelry designs).
Over the years I have learned A LOT. In this audio you will learn all of my gem show shopping tips and tricks from budget to travel, shipping and what to wear, and how to manage crystal overwhelm.
