MJSA. Professional excellence in jewelry making and design.

Online Learning

Want to learn how to create a successful design business, and do so from the comfort of your favorite easy chair? MJSA is sponsoring a series of Designer Collaborative webinars on the topics close to designers’ hearts. Learn how to create effective pricing strategies, build a collection, develop digital marketing programs, work with subcontractors, and stay up to date on "what’s new." Plus, the Designer Spotlight series will feature interviews with successful designers who will share the lessons they’ve learned over their careers (and point out the mistakes you should avoid).

The webinars will be led by MJSA’s designer advocate, Andrea Hill, CEO of the Hill Management Group and a specialist in working with small and medium-sized businesses.

Webinars are free for MJSA Premier members, just $15 for MJSA Associate members, and $50 for non-members. Reserve your spot today!
