If you are looking to start your own business in the fashion industry, you probably have a few questions. One of the most frequent questions we get from aspiring jewelry designers is whether you need a permanent jewelry machine.
The experts at PermaLinx have all the answers you need to set you down the exciting path of operating your very own permanent jewelry business. With the right tools, training, and support, you can go from being a beginner to a professional designer in a very short time. Let’s find out how.
What Is a Permanent Jewelry Machine? Do You Need One?
A permanent jewelry machine is a type of welder that is used to create permanent jewelry, such as bracelets, necklaces, and anklets. The machine uses a pulse arc welding process to create a weld between the chain and the clasp.
To use a permanent jewelry machine, the jeweler first needs to size the chain to the customer’s wrist or ankle. Next, the jeweler will use the device to weld the clasp to the chain. The welding process is quick and easy, and it only takes a few seconds to complete.
Unfortunately, these kinds of machines are quite expensive, costing $2,500 or more for one unit.
However, you don’t need a machine to attach permanent jewelry! With PermaLinx by jBloom, all you need are the right equipment, training, and specialized jewelry parts to start your own business.

Why People Love Permanent Jewelry
People choose jewelry for a variety of reasons. Whether it is to celebrate a special occasion, a gift for their significant other or close friend, or even to showcase their personal style, permanent jewelry is a great way to take your memories with you wherever you go.
Permanent jewelry is both stylish and long-lasting. Our pieces are resistant to changing color and fading and are safe to wear while swimming and bathing. They also travel through airport security without any problem. If something were to cause a chain to break, PermaLinx will send a replacement.
