Artbeads.com and Ruby Lane Work Together
to Support Artisan Jewelers
If you are looking to add another venue to sell your items and minimize the impact of the current economic slump, come to the site widely known and respected for showcasing some of the finest artisan jewelry, Rubylane.com.
The Team at Ruby Lane understands that the finest handcrafted jewelry often begins with the highest quality components. This quality however generally comes at a higher cost and that can create a real challenge for jewelry designers trying to provide attractively priced jewelry in these tough economic times. To help our artisan jewelers face this challenge, Artbeads.com has teamed up with Rubylane.com which is offering a special discount to Artbeads customers.
"We'd like to take this opportunity to introduce ourselves to Artbeads.com's loyal customers, as we have grown over the past 11 years to become a dynamic community of more than 2,000 quality online shops from around the world. It is clear that Ruby Lane has emerged as the most important and respected online venue for enthusiasts of antiques & art, vintage collectibles and jewelry, and artisan jewelry," says Palmer Pekarek, Director of Communications and Business Development for Rubylane.com.
On September 15, 2008, Ruby Lane introduced its new site design. This new design created thirteen lanes that zero-in on collectibles by category. The Artisan Jewelry Lane boasts over 24,000 items from around the world. These high quality artisan items meet Ruby Lane's strict guidelines of authenticity and are backed by its well-respected Advantage Program.
Ruby Lane is excited to partner with Artbeads.com to offer its preferred customers a special offer. From now until September 1, 2009, Ruby Lane will provide Artbeads.com preferred customers a $75 account credit to offset the shop set-up fee when they open a shop on the site on or before that date. Your shop must meet the site's guidelines and be approved by their review staff. Plus, after 90 days of opening your shop, you will receive an additional $20 credit to your Ruby Lane account.
For example, you will be asked to pay $100 to open your shop on Ruby Lane ($75 set-up, $20 advertising fee, and $5 in listing fees - listing fees vary and are dependent on the number of items you list in your shop). Once the Ruby Lane staff has approved your shop, you will receive a $75 credit in your Ruby Lane account. If for some reason you are not able to set-up a shop on Ruby Lane, this $100 will be returned to you. This Ruby Lane account credit can be used to pay your monthly maintenance fees, additional listing fees, and/or for featuring on the site.
