Behind the Scenes: Running a Small Etsy Jewelry Business

Introduction Welcome back to another week at BeccaBoor Jewelry, where I share insights about running my small Etsy jewelry business. In this article, I will take you behind the scenes and provide a glimpse into the preparations for a craft fair. From creating metal inserts for necklaces to packing inventory and participating in the craft fair, join me on this journey filled with creativity and hard work.

Preparing for the Craft Fair As I mentioned last week, I am currently busy preparing for a craft fair. Due to my prior lack of work, I have a large amount of work to do. However, I am excited to show you the process of getting ready for the event.

Creating Metal Inserts for Necklaces One reader recently asked me about the metal inserts I use to hold necklaces in place in their packaging. I use a thin wire, typically a 26 gauge wire, to make these inserts. They are affordable and can be easily molded into shape using round needle nose pliers. In this section, I will guide you through the process of creating these inserts, adding a professional touch to your jewelry packaging.

Packing and Inventory Management Inventory management is crucial for any craft fair. In this section, I will take you through my packing process, ensuring that I have everything organized and ready to go for the event. I will also discuss my inventory sheet and how I am producing my necklaces in bulk for this specific event.

Making Custom Stickers To enhance the customer experience and add a personal touch, I have created custom stickers that I will be giving away with every order at the craft fair. I will share the process of designing and creating these stickers, showcasing my artwork and how it complements my jewelry.

The Day of the Craft Fair Finally, the big day has arrived. In this section, I will document the day of the craft fair, sharing the setup process, interactions with fellow vendors, and the overall atmosphere of the event. Join me as I navigate through this exciting day and showcase the beauty of handmade jewelry.

Participating in the Pride Festival One of the craft fairs I participate in is a pride festival organized by the Henderson Equality Center. This section will delve into my experiences at the event, the sense of love and acceptance felt, and the amazing conversations I had with attendees. I will also highlight the importance of supporting organizations like the Henderson Equality Center.

Post-Event Reflection and Rest After the craft fair, it is common to experience what I like to call an "event hangover" or a social hangover. In this section, I will share my thoughts and emotions post-event, discussing the need for rest and mental clarity. I will also touch upon the importance of taking time to recharge and refuel.

AsMR Videos vs. Studio Vlogs: What Do You Prefer? As a content creator, I produce both ASMR videos and studio vlogs. In this section, I would like to get your opinion on which type of content you prefer. Is it the relaxing ASMR videos or the behind-the-scenes studio vlogs? Let me know your thoughts in the comments.

Planning for the Summer Lastly, I want to hear about your plans for the summer. If you are starting your own shop or working behind the scenes, I would love to know what you are currently focusing on. Share your ideas and thoughts in the comments section, and let's inspire each other.

By delving into each of these topics, this article aims to provide you with a comprehensive understanding of what it takes to run a small Etsy jewelry business.
