Look into your local craft fairs or craft boutiques. Sometimes you need to buy a booth or rent space from someone who already has a booth. This will get your jewelry crafts out to a larger population. If you can’t find any craft fairs or craft boutiques in your local area you should try looking around for swap meets, flea markets or gem shows; all these types of markets are a great way for you to get your product out to the public and help you earn some extra money doing a craft that you love.
Think about doing community sales. These can be for your church, school, fire or police department or even the local library, donate part or all of the proceeds if you do this idea.

Think of doing your own open house jewelry party. Use unique and innovative layouts to display all your jewelry crafts. You can also call on friends to wear your jewelry designs as live models. Invite your neighborhood whether you know them or not, you may be surprised in who shows up.
Use yard sales to help sell your jewelry crafts. Talk to neighbors or friends that may be having a yard sale to see if you can display and try to sell your jewelry at their yard sale. Have your own yard sale to sell the jewelry crafts if you need to.
