The Secret to Building a Desirable Jewelry Brand

Have you ever wondered about the difference between successful jewelry designers and those who are struggling to make a sale?

I hate to break it to you but it has NOTHING to do with Talent.

The “difference” between successful vs. struggling jewelry artists comes down to a simple approach to business that is often overlooked.

That’s why I wanted to share a wonderful training series that my friends over at Flourish & Thrive Academy have created.

It’s called The 3 Steps to Your Thriving Jewelry Business and it’s an amazing resource if you are ready to build a desirable jewelry brand and skip the struggle.

In this FREE training series, you’ll discover:

  • How Asking 3 Questions Will Put Your Jewelry Biz on the Map (Big Time)

  • The Simple Shift For Lasting Success

  • How to Feel Supported in Your Jewelry Business

Tracy & Robin have been in the jewelry industry for a long time (20+ years each). In these training videos, they share their best secrets to help jewelry designers like you skip the learning curve and get straight to success!

After taking the training, you can expect to:

  • Clearly communicate your branded vision

  • Feel confident in your potential for lasting success

  • Trust in the power of peer support for maximum growth

Pop on over, check out the training series and meet some of the other designers in the Flourish & Thrive Academy community for FREE. Don’t hesitate, click now!

I took this course in 2014 and it changed the way I look at my jewelry business, it has been growing steadily ever since! I also love the community of artists that I am now a part of, my jewelry tribe as I like to call them. Grab a cup of tea and head on over and check our their free videos.

P.S. Do you just design jewelry as a side biz (or know someone who does)? This video series is still for you! Tracy talks about so much more than just business - because it’s all about getting your work on your biggest brand advocates, right?

F&TA has been a significant factor in the growth of my business and I love what they are doing. That’s why I am a proud partner of F&TA and I may earn a referral fee for sharing this with you.

Yeah, it's one of those days...


Ever have one of those days? You know the day - you’re off your game, and therefore everything else is off too? Where everything you try to do doesn’t work? The web page won’t load, the curtain rod falls down, the printer is acting up, you’re running late, you’re tense, stressed, etc. That was my New Year’s Eve day. Let me back up. I had been out late the night before celebrating at a pre-new years eve dinner. Good food, good people, kids up waaaayyyy too late. That was already setting me up for a rocky start the next day, because I know myself and I know how my body reacts when it doesn’t get enough sleep. To no surprise I woke up late, had a cranky kid shuffling around the house and the rest just fell into place. By the time I had gotten into work, I was wound tighter than a rubber band. I could have let the kinks keep on snowballing, but I knew I had to get out of that funk. What did I do? I put some of my Young Living essential oils in my diffuser (Pine for grounding and Stress Away to help calm me down). I really wanted to put in Citrus Fresh, but the first bottle I grabbed was empty, so I grabbed the other bottle that was sitting there… empty. Yeah, it was that kind of day alright. After I had the diffuser going, I put on my Tibetan Singing Bowls music from my Spotify playlist. I chose the grounding / tribal track to start. After several minutes I could feel my body start to relax and the stress starting to back off. I let this play out for the next couple hours while I packed orders and replied to emails. It was a relaxing atmosphere and by the time I left my mood had shifted for the better.


I’ve been practicing energy work this year, learning how to keep myself calm and grounded in a world full of chaos. I’m definitely still learning, it’s a lot of work and I only just started to see a real difference in what I’ve been practicing. I hope to continue and grow my practice going into 2016. Adding daily meditation and continuing to learn and grow. I have a wonderful tribe in the jewelry community that I am so grateful for, and a close circle of friends and family that are always there for me. I had a pretty big shake up happen to my company in October (that’s a whole other story), and everyone (I mean everyone) rallied for me. My jewelry community, my vendors, my family & friends… it was such an overwhelming show of support and love it really touched me.


I’m excited to see where 2016 takes Zoe and Piper this upcoming year - I have a lot of new ideas waiting to come to life!

You get what you think about...

inspirational quotes - you get what you think about

I love this quote - it is so true! Sometimes I have to stop and remind myself of this, it's easy to complain, fester and whine when something isn't going your way. It takes mindfulness and intent to stay positive and look for the good (even in the bad). I have said this quote a lot over the past couple of months, and it has proved itself time and again!
