Playing with Instagram

It’s a rainy day here on Silver Lake in South Jersey.  I’ve got a bunch of gorgeous new jewelry waiting to be photographed, but since it looks best on a sunny day, I guess that I will just have to wait. So, I’m taking this hour before picking Rory up from Theater Camp to learn all about using Instagram!  Sterling Disc Necklace with Pearl  Copper Disc and Pearl Earrings

I now post to Instagram with the handle roryroo22studio.  I love learning new things!

 

Promotion decisions for July…

My current June promotion for Pearls has met with some success- the sale is pearl orders or re-stringing of pearls is done at $3 per inch.  Since pearls on cotton or silk cord (which is what most pearls are strung on) need to be re-strung every 5-10 years depending on the amount of wear, this is a great time to get your pearls some much-needed upkeep!  So, now that I have done a “sale” I think that I would like to do another one- this was kinda fun.  I’m trying to decide between doing a 20% discount on July birthstone (Ruby and/or Red crystals) OR doing free shipping to anywhere in the USA (patriotic of me- right?).  Send me a quick message through my contact page here at RoryRoo22.com and/or “Like” me on Facebook to give me your much-needed opinion so I can start my advertising for July- Thanks!

July Birthstone.  Depending on size and quality it will run you $50-800+  so, 20% discount might be nice

Searching for a Jewelry Sales Rep…

Today I officially launched my search for Jewelry Sales Representatives who are experienced and work on commission based on sales.  Though wholesaling is a newer venture here at RoryRoo22, LLC Design Studio, it is a process that I have managed while working for other employers so I am absolutely confident in our ability to complete and deliver quality handmade jewelry at wonderfully reasonable prices.  Please see my CV  at www.mindyjuntti.com for information on my background.  My styles are proven sellers at craft shows and I am gaining a following on Etsy.com.  I produce a line of Bridge (costume) Jewelry as well as working in precious and semi-precious stones and metals.  So many exciting things are happening daily here at RoryRoo22!
