    Default Manufacturing abroad

    My first question on this forum, the first of many.

    How viable is it for a jeweller to set up and train local people who have no skills in the basics of metal jewellry making and then export these to wherever the jeweler wishes?

    Has anyone ever done this, that you know of?

    Train jewellers when you have no experience yourself?

    Then find a market for your products? Or is it the semi trained jewellers you wish to export?

    It's a joke, right? Dennis.

    I would say it may be a bit tricky.

    What is your market? If it's the lower end of the market, I suspect it is as you are talking about basic jewellery skills, then you will be competing with countries that have a lower costing labour force. That doesn't make any sense to me.

    You are speaking to a skilled forum Harj who are here to hopefully give advice to people of all skills who already have a passion for jewellery making.
    What are you expecting us to tell you exactly? Training people up to make a quality product takes years of skill and a love for what we do. You sound as if you’re wanting to start up a sweat shop and there are enough of those all over the world.Or are you having a wee joke with us
