A hobby has turned into a third income for my family.
For some people making beaded jewelry is a hobby. This was the case with me until my husband said I should try to sell it on ebay.
I had gone to craft shows to sell before and I would make enough money to pay for my booth rent and to buy my daughter and I lunch. So when he suggested this I was kind of skeptical. I soon found out that people will buy anything on ebay. I have sold many pairs of earrings and even sets of necklaces and earrings.
I don’t personally wear my jewelry. Not very good at advertising, right? I just know that there are others who do wear this type of jewelry so I try to make a variety of colors, shapes and I even throw in a few cute ones for holidays or animal lovers like myself.
I really enjoy creating different patterns to make my items unique. I find it to be a very relaxing hobby to pursue while the kids are at school and the little one is napping. I even take a few supplies with me to appointments to work on while I am waiting.
Beading supplies are fairly inexpensive so I am able to sell my items at a reasonable price and still make a profit from them.
