Other Jewelry Sites & Resources
Ganoksin has been around for over twenty years. They are a jewelry making resource with tons of tutorials and how-to’s. They are a membership site with pricing from $4/mo to $20/mo.
Membership includes access to tutorials and also their popular forum for jewelers where you can ask questions and interact with other jewelers. This is the forum to go to if you have questions about setting, casting, sales policies, pricing…anything jewelry related.
10. Jewelers Helping Jewelers
This is along the same lines as Ganoksin, but it is a jewelry group on Facebook. Ask questions and other jewelers will help you. You need to be a member of the group to participate.
11. Jeweler Profit
The design of this site needs a lot of work but….if you’re a jeweler, David helps you with pricing. If you’re a designer looking for a systematic way to price your jewelry, take a look at David’s book – “Geller’s Blue Book”. He also sends out newsletters to help you make the most of your sales and income. David is a 14th generation jeweler!
12. Aspiring Metalsmiths
As they say on their Facebook page, “This is a friendly and supportive place to talk metal, share business and technical advice, show off your work, and have fun. Anybody with an interest in any type of metalwork can join and participate.” As with Jewelers Helping Jewelers you must be a member of the group.
We hope you found some sites here that you hadn’t heard of before. If you’re looking for more maker sites, take a look at our jewelry making classes post.
