Has anyone heard of Artisan Corp. of America? It is a jewelry making craft/buy back program. They checked out with the BBB, but I am still skeptical. Their website is www.artisancorp.com
Please let me know if anyone has tried them! Also I am relatively new to the WHAM board but I love it. I am desperately trying to stay home with my 20 month old!

Hi, Run as far away as you can from this one. It is one great big scam. LOL From our local news station they did a segment of these work at home assembly companies and they choose this one to try to assemble their product. They brought in a jewelry designer to make their earrings. He assembled what looked to me and everyone else like a perfect pair. They rejected them saying they didn't hang straingt. LOL They were perfect in every way and when they tried to contact the company to find out what they meant they wouldn't respond.

Big scam, I unfortunately tried this company and spent about eight hours to complete one pair of earrings, they turned out just like they should have and they rejected mine. Don't waste your money. I am upset that they are in good standing with the BBB. Goodluck to you

I have been involved with them too. I did a lot of research in several forums and never found one good thing said about Artisan. Unfortunately this was after I had paid for and ordered their startup kit. I never tried to send anything to them but I wish that people who had these problems would complain to the BBB because folks trust the BBB. When I first checked them and saw that there were no complaints against artisan was when I decided to send them money.
