Outsource yourself?

Melinda O'Keefe, of Melindesign Jewelry Assembly Studio has discovered an clever new way to market her services and make money doing what she loves...making jewelry.  She explains her journey, moving from being a designer and a teacher to becoming an experienced assembler.

Unlike those "make crafts at home" scams where you will find that you never get paid for your work (it's never up to their requirements...the whole idea was to sell you the kit in the first place), Melinda has brilliantly figured out how to help other jewelers increase their production in a way that benefits them both.  Smart girl!  Read her story at Rena Klingenberg's site, Home Jewelry Business Success Tips, and if you haven't already subscribed to it, do it for heaven's sake!

Very innovative approach.

I do a lot of jewelry repairs and updates. I love taking unrelated vintage pieces and combining them, or just making something old sparkle again by changing out the fittings.

I loved Melinda's attitude and explanation of her niche.
