Daily Wire Jewelry Making Tip for
February 4, 2011


In the Definitive Guide, on the Art Show DVD, when Dale’s talking to the potter, they mention a magazine. I’ve played it twice, and I’m still not sure of the name of it. It sounds like something that those of us trying to get into the selling business need. Can you give details please?

I am so pleased that you are enjoying The Definitive Guide, Beth! The magazine he and I were talking about is The Crafts Report. It is one of my favorites as well, due to the fact that it is written "by" artists, "for" artists.

    I had never heard of this publication, The Crafts Report, so I went to the online version, clicked on just 2 articles and found them to be very useful! Thank you, Dale! I am looking forward to subscribing.

    I am so glad that was brought up! I too have wondered about the literature out there by and for artisans. Thanks for asking the question that has given us all information to grow.
