Help! Marketing & Free Stuff!!Sets!

Please pop over to Facebook and like my page. I’m giving away a pair of earrings. Unexample Jewellery Page

It really is as simple as that!

I make jewellery.

Starting a business is hard and one thing I have learned is as good as your product is and as fancy as your website may be that is only a fraction of it.

I have a blog


I have a website with a shopping cart

I have a twitter page @UnexampleJ

And although I love making my jewellery I need help getting my brand out there

Unexample Jewellery

So with a small marketing plan and even smaller budget I am working on Unexample Facebook Page

This is why I am asking my wordpress friends to pop over to my Unexample Facebook Page  and click like. And yes I will be giving a pair of earring away. I already have sent a pair, for free, to Australia and Dubai. I also seem to be giving more away for local charity raffles than I have sold. So I’m hoping I might get by with a little help from my friends.

Also if anyone pokes around in Unexample Links and has any feedback at all I would really appreciate it. I’m a Jewellery Designer not a Marketing Agency. I could do with a little help from a community I trust.

Unsatisfactory, Jewellery & Madness!




After months of serious family illness, OFSTED claiming we are unsatisfactory at school and the general feeling of where is my life going at the age of 46 I decided to put myself out there. I have started my own jewellery business. I like to make things and fell onto this by accident. I made myself a pair of earrings, loved them and kept making them. I had so many thought I could sell these. I can sit for hours just making them but had to stop myself and set up a website, take photographs, design business cards and set up Facebook and Twitter accounts. Easy peasy you’d think. When I went online I had a couple of orders and even though I post everyday, I have lots of wonderful comments on Facebook they are not transferring into sales. I have come to the conclusion you can have the most amazing Product and great functioning website but I now need a way to get my Brand out there. I have decided I’m in this marketing lark for the long haul so am not panicking about Christmas and in the New Year will start to find different ways to get seen and known. However if anyone has any advice for me I would be so grateful. My marketing budget is zero but I will not give up. In January I will set up a blog for my Jewellery but for the time being I will just carry on posting and researching how to get my brand seen. If I love what I make someone else out there will I just need to connect with them. I would also really appreciate any feedback about my earrings and my website. Every Little Helps and so does a slight touch of madness!

Business, Creativity & Christmas Gifts!


I didn’t realise I had a passion for earrings until I made a pair for myself.

I had grown my hair long and had began to tie it up for work. Looking at myself in the mirror, I thought how an amazing pair of earrings would really cheer up my drab 40 something face.
I had recently been mourning the loss of a silver small hoop earring that I thought was particularly stylish in an understated way. I went back to the jewellers to see if I could get a replacement pair but the styles had changed and the cost of a new silver pair was £40. It seemed the cost of silver had rocketed since I was last jewellery shopping. Considering I had just lost one earring, the thought of £20 dropping out of my ear made me leave the shop empty handed. Having said that, I became desperate and would have paid £40 for the perfect match. For months I searched shops for the ideal pair of earrings, but nothing ever grabbed or moved me enough to part with my hard earned money.
On a day out, walking the dogs, I stumbled over a “hippy” shop and bought the bits and bobs to make my own earrings. The ones I made I instantly fell in love with. They had everything I had been searching the shops and internet for – understated style.
I continued to make my earrings, now having a pair to go with each outfit and mood that I may possibly have. Family and friends then started to comment on my earrings and I would make one-off pairs for them which I felt best suited their look or style. After lots of hours of earring making, I then realised I actually now had a portfolio of fine-looking earrings and decided to start marketing them to a wider audience. My thinking behind this was that if I struggled to buy things I loved, other people may just appreciate my earrings. Hence the start up of Unexample Jewellery.
I have always had a creative gene in me. I paint and draw for my own enjoyment, not very well but I find it very therapeutic. I teach art to primary school juniors and am passionate about art and design and the joy that comes with producing something unique. On a personal level, I always need to be creating and producing something and my earrings are my artistic outlet.
Each pair of earrings is made from a feeling and vision I have when I pick up the raw materials. I will put an earring together and dismantle it and remake it several times until I look at it and think, “That is exactly what I want”, and I actually want to keep it for myself. My beads are clay, glass, resin, plastic and metals, although I am more concerned with colour and shape than the actual raw materials I use.
My vision is to branch out and make necklaces and bracelets.
Unexample Jewellery isn’t just jewellery it is my passion and my future. Being able to wake up every morning and your job is your passion, now that is what Unexample Jewellery is for me.
