London Jewellery School Members Networking Event

I was pleased to be asked to speak about social media at the London Jewellery School networking event last week. The event was attended by members of the London Jewellery School all of whom were new designer/makers of different types of jewellery.

Hayley Kruger, another tutor from the Jewellery School, spoke first about her extensive experience and her career. She gave lots of invaluable hints and tips about what she had learnt in her various roles in the jewellery industry. I learnt a lot from that!

 I spoke about how to use social media, especially twitter, facebook etc, to connect with potential customers and those that have already bought.
Hayley and I both displayed a sample of our work. I also showed some of the cards I have from moo.com to demonstrate how I use the mini moo cards as labels for my bracelets. I wrote a blog post about that here
All in all I feel it was a really fantastic event with lots of questions and discussion. I look forward to seeing what these enthusiastic new designers make!
