JEWELRY DESIGN & CREATION - MARKETING - BUSINESS
Team: Anya Zimmerman-Smith
ANYA Jewelry is my small jewelry business. I design and create all pieces and run all aspects of the business.
Based on market research and my personal creative inclinations I have designed a variety of lines of jewelry to sell. After testing those for several years I now know which pieces are most cost effective, have the highest profit margins and do best in certain markets.

Sharing the joy.
Since the inception of my business I have maintained a social media presence for my jewelry and a platform for purchases. This has included designing and creating a website, maintaining an Instagram and Etsy, photographing jewelry and designing a logo.
