New Year’s Resolutions
We all do it.. we all make New Year’s Resolutions.. right? I know I do..
As I was thinking about next year, my mind wandered to all of the resolutions we make and never keep. Here are the top ten resolutions that everyone makes but no one keeps!

- Go to the Gym
- Tame the Bulge – lose weight
- Quit Smoking
- Enjoy Life More
- Quit Drinking
- Get out of Debt
- Learn something new
- Help others
- Get organized
How many of us have written down these same resolutions year after year, only to never start on them…
So, I wanted to give all of you…
10 New Year’s Resolutions That Every Jewelry Artist Can Keep!
1. Learn a new skill:
Sign up for our FREE Patterns and learn how to make a new piece of jewelry. We will send you a new FREE Pattern every 14 days and all you have to do is open them and follow the pattern! It’s easy. Look at how much you will learn with every new project!
2. Expand your knowledge:
Purchase one of our Instructional DVDS or Jewelry Books and learn a new skill. If you’ve always wanted to learn how to wire wrap – take a moment and check out all of the Instructional DVDS and Jewelry books that will help you expand your knowledge!
3. Master a New Tool:
We carry all of the tools that you need to become a master of your craft! Why not upgrade from those old, worn out pliers to the Ulimate wire-pliers set. Treat yourself to a great set of jewelry tools, and start mastering your craft today!
4. Find Some New Resources:
We’re committed to helping you develop into the best wire jewelry artist you can be. Making jewelry is about having fun, meeting new people, and making friends for life. Whether you’re making jewelry for friends you know, for customers on Etsy, or for clients from brides to belly dancers, you’ll find tips and tricks to make your jewelry making experience faster and more enjoyable!
Check out our Jewelry Resource Center for information on patterns, events, technique, business-building and marketing, and even glossaries on wire and jewelry terms!
5. Save money:
Did you know you can shop by price here at Wire-Sculpture? We know how tedious it can be scrolling through hundreds of beads looking for ones that are in your price range, especially when you have a specific price in mind. So, we’ve made it simple for you!
Whatever price you’re looking for simply click on the corresponding price and you’ll see all the beads we have for under $1.00, $5.00 and so on. It’s that easy.
6. Get Great Deals:
Every weekday, we select 3 or 4 items from our warehouse and offer them to you for a great price–usually 40-80% below regular price! You can be certain you’re getting the best possible price that day. However, these prices only last for that day–and once we sell out, they’re gone.

7. Take a Class:
If you haven’t ever taken a class on how to make jewelry, why not start now? Classes can offer you a hands on and one-on-one experience that you can’t get at home by yourself.
Why not take a class at your hobby craft store or communicant college or university. Often there are classes being held at craft shows as well. Search for local shows in and get back to class today!
8. Learn to take better photos of your jewelry:
If you’ve been making amazing jewelry but have struggled with getting great photos of your pieces, there’s a very simple answer: A Light Box!
It’s easy to build and will make a huge difference in how your jewelry photos come out! Stop struggling with getting just the right natural light, or trying to find that perfect place without bad shadows: take control of your photos! Read our blog article today: Building and Using a Light Box

9. Learn how to sell your jewelry:
When you’re alone in your workspace, your studio, looking at the jewelry you’ve made, you probably think about who will wear it. Who’s going to wear that beautiful piece of jewelry and cherish it for years and years?
Learning how to sell your jewelry can seem like a daunting task, but it’s really not! Take a look at our Definitive Guide to Selling Handcrafted Jewelry. It gives you step-by-step help in getting your creations out in the public!
10. Share your love of Jewelry with someone else:
We all love making, so why not make a resolution to start giving! Give to a neighbor or community group. Donate to a charity for an auction or just give one to your best friend! Give – it’s always better to give than receive! Start sharing your love of making jewelry with someone else and you might be amazed where it will take you!
Let’s make a goal to get started and make 2015 a great year! Now, go get started on those resolutions!
Happy Wrapping and Happy New Year!
