We are looking for trendy, fashion minded individuals who love jewelry and modern design to come join our studio.  We value non toxic, balanced living, quality made products that are timeless and beautifully crafted,  and work in a friendly, respectful studio atmosphere.  At markets we are in a fast paced environment with diverse conversation and focused intention on meeting our customer's needs.  The two open positions- SALES AT MARKETS and JEWELRY MAKING + PACKAGING,  offer a fair wage and (during markets) earrings of your choice, to keep, that compliment your style and help showcase the products, plus event passes.  Some of the larger events we are known to attend are the Filberg Festival, Out of Hand Modern Market, the Bespoke Market and the Crafted Farmhouse Market. 

In the studio we have a come and go mentality (except on the days leading up to an event where extra preparation is needed) and generally start around 10am - with flexibility for earlier hours and evening hours.  We work in 1-2 hour segments with mandatory stretch breaks and sometimes collectively or on our own.  The studio can be quite busy, or quiet and contemplative, depending on the work being done.  The materials being worked with include, but are not limited to, polymer clay, acetate, metals, glues, paints, silicon, papers, finishes - we work as non toxic as possible but masks/respirators and eye protection may be required at times.  Market days start around 8am, take place indoors and out (in all conditions), require a specific, on brand look and are attended on weekends and some evenings.  Both positions are part time/on call (with ample notice) and require no jewelry making experience.  We will not be considering existing jewelry designers looking to be mentored.

 

We would love to have a chat about why you would like to be a part of NIYIEM studio and what that would look like.  The openings are being presented as two positions but they could be filled by one person wanting to do both tasks.  Please read the skills requirements below and apply!
