MJSA Buyer’s Guide

Once design inspiration hits, you’ll need the right tools, supplies, and maybe even a few contract services to turn your concept into a beautiful creation. And to help ensure you make the best purchasing decisions, you’ll want to keep the MJSA Buyer’s Guide close at hand.

The 2017 print edition lists MJSA member companies that, together, supply everything needed to design, make, and sell great jewelry:

• The latest tools and equipment.

• Findings and chain.

• Gemstones and beads.

• Precious and non-precious metals.

• Packaging and displays.

• Contract and business services.

The Guide also includes in-depth articles on how to best evaluate specific purchasing options and, once you’ve made a decision, maximize the benefits. (For even more know-how, go to the Buyer’s Tips section of the MJSA Buyer’s Guide Online.)

In addition, the Buyer’s Guide offers the comfort of being able to deal with MJSA members—companies that, by joining the association, not only demonstrate their dedication to the industry, but also agree to abide by the MJSA Code of Ethics.
