Episode 39 – The Other Side of the Coin: A Conversation with Makers


In this week’s episode, we talk about a topic that seems to be here until it goes away, long wait times and the issues that come along with this drought. However, more often than not, we are speaking about this as a customer or client. But what is it like for makers of jewelry and products for our industry. Does the stress of looming queues and angry customers affect them? Do all those jabs and nasty comments from our frustration affect them? Tonight we will find out.

We sit down and have a discussion with makers of jewelry and products in our industry to discuss what it is like for them in the current climate of long production times and shipping issues. Jared Karnes Of Onetribe, discusses  his shift in production systems and the advantages they bring. Andy Dunn of SouthShore Adornments, regales us with his frustration of shipping issues and how expensive replacing those items are. Lastly, Badur Ramji of Punkmedics, tells us the hardships that happen when dealing with products that have shelf lifes and how being a one man operation is all consuming.

So without further ado, Listen is as we talk about what they wish customers knew, what happens behind the scenes and how they handle our constant demand.



Jared, Andy and Badur can all be found on their Instagrams or their companies respectively(Onetribe, SouthShore Adornments, and PunkMedics).
