I was picked up by a few of my top 10 dream accounts…
At the summer NY Now show, I was able to open more new accounts and attract more traffic to my booth. This is because F&T helped me to focus on developing a stronger collection for my dream stores, spend more time marketing to the dream stores and improve my overall booth presentation. I was picked up by a few of my top 10 dream accounts (Virtu, Kuhl Linscomb) and I reconnected with some old accounts (Laughing Dog Gallery, Grand Hand Gallery).Ann Chikahisa, ChikahisaStudio.com
If you intend to approach retailers, do yourself a favor and take this course FIRST!
Like all F&TA courses, Mastering Wholesale is well thought out, delivers amazing content and is manageable in terms of time and budget. I really enjoyed the training on pricing plus I felt totally prepared to approach retailers because of the step-by-step guidance I received. I’m no longer consigning my jewelry and I gained several new accounts after taking the course.Catherine Preston, CatherinePrestondesign.com
Success in Wholesale Will Change Your Business…
Increase Your Brand Exposure Exponentially
Though the internet has a global reach, it is really just one venue people go to when they are buying jewelry.
Selling wholesale is a great way to widen your reach and multiply your exposure. Each new store carrying your jewelry markets to a multitude of clients who might not otherwise find you.
Gain Complete Validation of Your Brand and Your Products
What is the difference between a home craft jewelry hobbyist and a high profile jewelry designer? Nothing besides the perception of your potential clients.
When a customer walks into their favorite boutique and sees your jewelry under the glass or hanging from a display, you immediately gain their trust in the quality, style, and professionalism of your products. Are you ready to become a “real” brand?
Create a New Revenue Stream to Boost Your Bottom Line
You may never take a bigger step in the journey to turn your passion into a full-time revenue source. With the mastery of wholesale comes multiple partners in marketing, lower packaging and shipping costs, and the power to move inventory in bulk.
At first the margins won’t seem as attractive selling your pieces one-by-one over the internet, but in reality the revenue potential of wholesaling is tremendous!
Streamline Your Production and Improve Your Design Process
When selling wholesale you are moving your inventory in large quantities. Buyers are probably going to order about 12 pieces. And that is just the starting point. Over time, you’ll be attracting orders potentially of 20, 30 or even 100 units!
The large orders force two changes in your business. You will need to streamline your production to meet demand in an efficient manner. And you will have to narrow your designs to one or two collections. Streamlining production and narrowing your product lines will open up your creativity and make the design process much more focused and enjoyable.
Forge Long Lasting Relationships
One of the greatest joys of the biz is creating long lasting relationships. As a wholesale jewelry designer, it’s going to happen a lot!
It is different than selling individual pieces to strangers over the internet. You are creating a partnership with your buyers, reps, and production team. You will work closely together with your partners to bring the jewelry to the customer and you will forge bonds based on camaraderie and shared success.

The entire course is invaluable, especially the training on pricing for wholesale.
As a newbie to wholesale, I was a little nervous about reaching out to stores on my own. I now feel totally professional and prepared, like I have been selling in stores for years. The entire course is invaluable, especially the training on pricing for wholesale. I’m glad I understand all of the costs and calculations involved so I don’t “shoot myself in the foot” later.GINGER HERBEIN, SincerelyGingerJewelry.com
