Custom made jewelry is a booming home business for those who have a creative streak and the ability to do finely detailed work. Bead jewelry is especially easy to do, and requires no large investment, nor specialized skills such as engraving. A pair of needle-nosed pliers, a wire cutter and perhaps a fine drill are all you need to get started.

The problem with small creative businesses like custom made jewelry has always been how to get your work seen, especially if you're living in small-town Kansas or northern Vermont. These days, however, the Internet is available to almost anyone who might want to buy jewelry. Your first step is to set up a really well designed website. If you don't have the computer skills to do this yourself, hire an expert. It won't matter how attractive your jewelry is if your website isn't.

Take or have taken some very clear and nicely arranged digital photos of your work, and then write your text. Again, it's a good idea to at least have it proofread and edited by someone knowledgeable. Your text may be as personal or as straightforward as you wish, but be sure to talk about creating pieces to order in addition to the designs you've done yourself.

Set yourself up with a good place to work, where your supplies need not be disturbed. Invest in some large lots of the beads you're most likely to use frequently, such as crystal, pearl or precious metals, and start collecting the odd, antique or whimsical beads and charms that will give your custom made jewelry its personal touch. Then let your imagination take the reins.
