If you are connected professionally in any way to the design, making, or sale of jewelry, then you need to belong to the MJSA community. It includes professional jewelry makers and designers of all sizes and types, from artisans just starting out to manufacturers with global operations. It also includes retailers that have their own custom design and repair areas, as well as suppliers of everything from tools to contract services.
Some members join because they know the contacts they’ll make through MJSA are invaluable. Others want to support MJSA’s legislative and educational efforts toward the continued vitality of professional jewelry making and design. But they all share one thing: By belonging to the MJSA community, they can find the information, resources, and connections needed to reach new customers, maintain quality, and profit.
Whether you manufacture in volume, do limited production runs, or make one-of-a-kind pieces, MJSA can help. As a member, you’ll find connections to some of the world’s most renowned experts on jewelry making and design, as well as an unparalleled library of technical, business, and compliance information—all of which is free or substantially discounted for members. You can also take advantage of free promotional opportunities that put your designs in front of more than 20,000 retailers of all sizes, and marketing and business assistance that enables you to turn those retailers from prospects into satisfied customers.
If you’re a retailer who creates custom designs or repairs jewelry, you’ll find others in the MJSA community who share the same passions and challenges. Through them, you’ll discover ideas for attracting new customers and exceeding their expectations, and you’ll gain insights into the latest design technologies. You’ll also find connections to reliable subcontractors who can turn your designs into finished pieces, along with the guidance needed to work with them effectively.

Through MJSA, you can ensure your design and repair operatiions are profitable.
If you’re a supplier or subcontractor to the trade, you’ll find your customers in the MJSA community. When buyers want jewelry-making tools, supplies, and services, they turn to MJSA for guidance.
