What is Jewelry? Really (I)
To become successful, you will have to catch a glimpse of jewelry as a spiritual object in a relationship with the emotional life of the retail customer. This is so the jewelry you offer will be thought of as "special", and not just more ordinary commercial merchandise that someone is selling. If you do not "get" this, it will be very much harder for you to be successful and to make good money with jewelry.
You have to know that jewelry is not only a material object. If you think of jewelry as material merchandise, you are fated to compete with all the jewelry that has ever been made in the world.
Before the Spanish came to Mexico, the people created and produced beautiful jewelry. Of the value of this jewelry, there is no doubt, as these treasures can be seen in the museum collection web-sites. The purpose of this ancient jewelry was entirely esthetic and ritual. Jewelry was NOT understood as a material item for sale. It was NOT created and made in hope and expectation that a buyer might be found for it, or to make a marginal profit.
