LJS Launches the Distance Learning Jewellery Business Course

This month saw the exciting launch of the long awaited Distance Learning Jewellery Business Course from LJS.
If you have ever wanted to set up your own jewellery business but lack the business skills, know-how and confidence needed to make it a success then this course is designed for you.
Although it covers no practical jewellery making, topics covered include: promoting and marketing your jewellery, websites and e-commerce, getting into shops and galleries, hallmarking, photography, packaging, insurance and legal requirements, finance and budgeting, pricing and selling your jewellery, social networking and blogs, taking on commissions and much more.

You can now order your copy online for a introductory price of just £99.00 (inc. VAT) for a limited time only! And if you have already completed a jewellery business class at LJS you are entitled to a 50% discount on this course.
Included in the pack is: A 50-page glossy colour workbook, DVD containing 13 short videos on each main aspect of running a jewellery business and a supplementary case study booklet.
