Selling Your Jewelry at Work is a Privilege

Navigating the ins and outs of selling jewelry at work require a balance between satisfying your goal to make money selling jewelry and respecting the privilege of selling jewelry at work.

At work is where I first began to sell my jewelry. I have successfully sold my jewelry during lunch, at company fundraisers and one-on-one to co-workers wanting to buy gifts.

At one point, a friend, who is a very social person and loves jewelry, sold my jewelry for me. I simply paid her a percentage of her sales in jewelry. It was a win-win for us both!

If you do not abuse the privilege, selling jewelry at work can be very profitable and rewarding.
