This month I’m introducing you to Tawny Reynolds, the owner, and designer behind Sundrop Jewelry.

These monthly features of other creative businesses are a way for all of us to get to know these wonderful businesses; it has been a long-time interest of mine to explore how other creative people make their way as professionals.

Introducing Tawny Reynolds and Sundrop Jewelry

Tawny Reynolds, I’m delighted to have you!  I am as much taken by the process as I am by the jewelry, so let’s dive in and find out more. I think we have to go straight to What, then we’ll go back to Who after we sort out the What and Where.

From giant statement-makers to everyday go-tos, fashion jewelry offers affordable appeal

Fashion jewelry offers couture-curious customers a way to experiment and beginning buyers an affordable option to play. For those reasons and others, it’s never a bad idea to have a selection of carefully curated fashion jewelry in stock as an alternative to your more precious pieces. 

Daring Designs Push the Bounds of Imagination

These outside-the-box designs take advantage of fashion jewelry’s lower price point and nontraditional materials to push the bounds of what is possible. A customer who might balk at investing a diamond-level amount of funds in an avant-garde piece can breathe more easily when the bold bling they admire sparkles with CZ instead.

How Artists Earn: Wholesale and Online Retail

There are a lot of ways to make a living from your art these days: online retail, in-person events, consignment and galleries, old-fashioned word-of-mouth, and of course, wholesale... 

Wholesale and online retail are great complements for each other. We all dread the “slow season,” but the two together help smooth out fluctuations in both income and degree of busyness throughout the year. Wholesale seasons are usually offset from the standard retail seasons – shops are ordering for Christmas in August and September, and for Spring at the January/February trade shows.
