I AM A MAKER
Maker Monologues is a place that teaches you how to run a small creative business online, electroforming + other jewelry making tips and my random thoughts and musings about what I think about this new maker economy.
There's a new generation of millennials who are blazing the trail, creating an unconventional life and carving out new traditions. We are the makers who are revolutionizing America to be the industrial country it once was. US made goods are making a comeback and I'm so thrilled you're taking an interest.
If you've made it here then chances are it's time for you to take that entrepreneurial step into creating your own product-based business online. You can do it in your spare time while working your full-time job. You never know where it will go. Hell, I'm starting this blog as a side hustle to my jewelry business, which trust me, takes a whole LOT of time.
Hey there! My name is Brittany Witt and I’m the maker + designer at Pineal Vision Jewelry. I’ve been running online businesses for almost 4 years. I had a jewelry shop before my current one for 2 years. I eventually hit a wall because I didn’t know a thing about running a business. It was the classic story of hobby turned full-time business. All I knew was that I loved making jewelry and people LOVED buying it.
I received many sales, everyone and their mama AND their grandmama (no lie!) wanted a pair of these best-selling barefoot sandals. But after months of a really good run with those my sales started to go stagnant and that’s when I knew I needed to become the visionary for my jewelry business. So I closed up shop, re-branded and started reading books on how to run a small creative business.
I HAVEN’T PUT THOSE BOOKS DOWN SINCE.
I fell madly in love with learning any and everything I could about business.
I’ve since taken many online courses worth hundreds of dollars to help me make the most out of my business. Which leads me to where I am right now. Teaching YOU everything I’ve learned, and continue to learn, about running and operating a small creative business.
This blog is brand new but I plan on blogging about jewelry making using the electroforming process, silversmithing and macrame techniques along with what small business owners like to call "shop talk." Anything from opening up your first Etsy shop, to branding your business, to pricing your products, to handling copy cats. And who knows what else this blog will grow to be. Are you going to follow the journey?
