Shop Critiques / Could I get a shop critique please?
« on: March 07, 2013, 03:40:56 PM »
At this point I'm just stocking ready-to-ship items. I would love a critique of my shop, specifically pricing. Do my prices seem okay?

I try to go for a variety in my pictures. I know my bunny rabbit pictures could be better but how does everything else look?

Thank you in advance. Any and all comments are appreciated!

I know it's been a while since you asked but thought I would comment on your shop. I love your items, they are beautiful! You have a lovely variety and I think the price is very good.

I do like that the items now have a solid background but I think you could have done a combination. I also think some closer views of the bracelets would be nice too. Basically have a variety. When I see the page showing numerous bracelets there they look very similar on first glance.

For example, the first bracelet could have the image you show, the second could have the first image be a close up of the letters (and the second image one of the bracelet further away).

I also think you could have used the fabric your family  members made to spice up some of the images.

Take a set of bracelets. The first image could be showing both bracelets in their entirety. The second image could be a close up of the beads showing the letters for the names. The third image could be the bracelets laying against/on the cloth, the fourth showing the bags. Something like that.

I completely understand how overwhelming it is to have to take new images of everything. I'm dealing with that myself!

You have a beautiful shop!

Hello there!

First of all, your work is just beautiful! I absolutely love anything turquoise so I love you have some pieces that include that.

Your photos are bright and the focus is spot on. They are attractive photos and your arrangement of the jewelry in the photos is very good. As a photographer (though you can't tell from my shop LOL we moved and I just now got all my stuff out again) some of the photos drive me crazy only because you didn't erase all the background. For example,

The second photo, upper left corner. But I'm pretty sure most people wouldn't even notice much less it affect what they think about your items.

I like that you have a nice range of prices. I admit to not knowing how they compare as I don't know much about this particular type of jewelry so can't really help there.

Overall I really like the look and presentation of your store!

Technical Help in Creating / Beaded Jewelry - Crochet Versus Knotting
« on: March 05, 2013, 03:55:18 PM »
I'm new to beaded crochet jewelry and I'm considering looking into doing knotted beaded jewelry instead. I found the book I want to buy but whenever I look at materials I get overwhelmed. It looks like I need to order most of the materials online.

I want to get 1 to 1.5 or even 2 mm in size and I'm trying to decide between leather, satin cord or should I go with something else?

Can I use cotton yarn or embroidery floss or does it need to be leather or satin?

Any other tips?

I'm trying to get my store stocked for Easter. I'm new to this site and the first thing I added were my Easter bunny rabbits. I love making these and each one always has such a distinct personality to me. I had to share!

Thanks in advance for looking!

Hi Andrea,

Thank you for your response!

I went ahead and added all of my bunny/Easter items and kept them on Etsy as well. I'll add more through the week so I can at least add one or two items a day for the next few days.

I'm definitely big on listing new items regularly, promoting through Twitter and forums, etc. So I won't be just relying on the site here to do the promotion for me.

I've not had a lot of sales for a while on Etsy so I'll be curious to see how things go here on this site.

Thanks again!
