For too long, internet marketers have used shipping as a profit center. As a result, consumers are wary about shipping costs and often reluctant to pay them. We do NOT regard shipping as a profit center, however, they are a real cost, particularly when sellers make a real effort to keep product costs down, as we do. Our shipping policies are explained here.
Articles and Resources
Technique is obviously foundational, but the professional pearl and bead stringer typically plays the role of counselor with clients.
Clients want to know how to store jewelry, clean jewelry and take care of jewelry. Clients also will ask questions about gemstones, pearls, designers, trends in the industry, fair trade issues and many more. The Articles and Resources section of the website is dedicated to these questions and many more including selling tips, approaching galleries and others. Not every article will be relevant for your niche, and we don’t want to suggest they are, but they should serve as a rich resource and reference and we hope you will find them valuable.
