When you started making jewelry, how you create your unique jewelry and where you find inspiration for your designs. This type of information will not only bring your handmade jewelry designs to life for your customer, it will also build a personal relationship between you and the reader. People will feel as if they know you.

Posting photos of your newest handmade earrings and handmade bracelets will keep everyone up to date with your latest handcrafted jewelry designs. Let your customers know what techniques you used to create them and how they can order these new designs. Showing photographs of your unique jewelry creations will make your customers aware of the variety available.

Inform your customer of upcoming craft shows where you will be displaying your handcrafted artisan jewelry. Let customers know about any special sales or discounts that are available. Ask your readers what craft shows or local events they would recommend. This is a great way of finding new shows.

There are so many ideas than can be included in your handcrafted jewelry blog. The most important thing is continuing contact with your customers providing interesting and useful information that will keep everyone coming back to your blog to hear the latest news about your handcrafted artisan jewelry business.
