panguver, You are right about the world of jewelry. There's huge competition like any other field and yet there's customers with different personal taste and style. You are doing very well in branding with your own style.
And when we are doing what we like, we enjoy the process more.

Hey there,

I was looking at putting some of my items on a shop online and part of the blurb back was this;

Good quality wholesale silver jewelry may have any of the following marks stamped on it: 925, sterling, sterling silver, ster

.925 signifies that the item you are looking at is made up of at least 92.5% silver. The balance of the blend will be an alloy metal.

Sterling silver always contains a .925 stamp on it. Avoid silver jewelry without a .925 stamp.


Am I able to state that all the pieces that are premium silver are 925? I am looking at the models I am going to offer and was going to put a little 925S on the bottom or back of them, just want to make sure that is the right thing to do?

Thanks for any assistance with this one.

S.

Correct according to the datasheet linked at the bottom of the materials page for silver. Just make sure that it is legal for you in your jurisdiction to
do your own hallmarking/hallmark without an assay/hallmark by means other than stamping...

I am having a potential BIG issue with Etsy. They invited me recently to apply for the new "Etsy Wholesale" side of their business. This came out a few months ago. I guess I made enough sales to get their attention.

I use Shapeways to get 95% of my designs made but there are 3 of my best selling designs I get made by other outfits that give me a volume discount. These were the 3 designs that I thought may be a good fit for Etsy Wholesale. Nothing made by Shapeways.

I started the application process, which involves trying to show that your manufacturer meets their requirements. After I got way deep into it, they told me I also needed to have Shapeways approved as a supplier, in addition to my other one, or I would not be able to list my Shapeways stuff even in my RETAIL shop on Etsy. This was not explained well at all earlier in the process, or I never would have accepted their invitation to apply for wholesale!

So, evidently Shapeways is not an approved manufacturer on Etsy. If Shapeways is not approved, then Etsy may force me to withdraw my listings. I told Etsy I wanted to withdraw my application for wholesale entirely, because I never intended to list my Shapeways stuff on wholesale anyway. If I had to choose, I'd rather keep my Shapeways listings and withdraw the ones from my other suppliers. It is pretty maddening. I have done really well on Etsy. About 45% of my sales are through Etsy, then about 40% are through my Shapeways shop, and about 15% on my own web site. So it would be a big blow to my business to have my Etsy shop shut down.

My case may be unique since I use other suppliers besides Shapeways but has anyone else run into anything like this? Anyone have suggestions for other channels besides Etsy that accepts items designed by you but manufactured by someone else?

Amazon becomes to sell handmade and already registered 3Dprinting domain. Is ETSY really banned Shapeways and such services as manufacturers??? I cannot add other similar service as my manufacturer on ETSY. Maybe, my empty shop on ETSY needs to be closed also?

No, they are not saying they don't accept outside manufacturers. They are just asking me to provide a bunch of information so they can approve these outside suppliers. I was surprised they asked me to provide this information for Shapeways. I'm hoping it was a misunderstanding!

No, they are asking me to send proof that Shapeways meets their requirements, not Shapeways. The entire process has something to be desired. Etsy is really going through turmoil right now it seems as they figure out how to grow their business.

Did they demand to send him the proof, what SW doesn't use a slave labor? Ha... maybe, SW would public to all ETSY admins such information more detailed... %)

Hello,
I improved and uploaded a new version of this whistle, now customizable and therefore usable keychain. Normally it should produce good sound especially if it is made of Stainless Stell.

Excuse me for my bad english, here is the text in French: "J'ai amélioré et uploadé une nouvelle version de ce sifflet, maintenant customizable et donc utilisable en porte clés. Normalement il doit produire un son correct surtout si il est fabriqué en Stainless Stell."
