Cathy Pitts, who studied studio art for 12 years and holds an MBA from Harvard Business School, founded the company in 2003. Today, the Bay Area artisans who make up the company’s creative team work hard to ensure that the Boutique’s customizable, handmade jewelry lives up to the Dasha name, which comes from the Greek word for “A Gift of the Gods.”

Dasha Boutique artisans employ gemstones of all shapes, sizes and colors, set against sterling or gold chains and backings in order to create feminine, versatile designs that are then tailored to meet the customer’s specific desires. It is one of the only online, handmade jewelry vendors that allows for such customization.

How To Sell Jewelry Wholesale

Wednesday, May 14th, 2008

If you are a creative person, with a great sense of style and flair, you may be able to start your own business – making and selling jewelry wholesale. Because people are so very unique, they want jewelry pieces that are unique – one-of-a-kind pieces that nobody else in the world owns! This desire can make you quite a bit of money – simply start your very own jewelry wholesale company.

You can easily order wholesale supplies from hundreds of companies around the globe online – at really low prices. It is important to keep up with how much each part of each piece of jewelry costs you, and to get a total cost of each piece, including any expenses that you had for having supplies shipped to you. With the total cost figured, you can easily set your prices by adding 15% to the cost. You can sell your pieces in a variety of ways. You can open your own online wholesale jewelry store, sell to local jewelry stores, rent booths at local flea markets and fairs, or advertise your jewelry making skills and take orders for unique pieces. You can also sell your pieces on consignment at boutiques. Another option is to do catalog sales. Make enough pieces to fill a small catalog, and take pictures of each piece. Write a description for each piece and then put together your own catalog using software and a good printer – or send the work to a print shop. You can send these catalogs out to a list that you obtain from a direct mailing list company.
