Title: Would like your feedback Green sead bead and orchid bicone with cat eye bracelet
Post by: missannsbeadedjewelry on March 08, 2013, 08:20:35 PM
Hi everyone,my name is Ann. I have been here for a while. This is my first post. I would like to show you one of the bracelets that I made and see what you think. I have seen that there are a lot of people looking and I need some feedback because nothing is selling. If you are just looking for ideas that is fine. I do that too. If something is not right let me know. Is the price too high. Is there not enough sizes. any feedback will be appreciated. Thank  you.

You do beautiful work!


I can't speak on the price as I really don't know much about this type of jewelry. But it seems fair to me.


I can say that I don't find the first picture very flattering for your jewelry. I would almost go with the second picture as the one you see first because it shows the bracelet actually on the wrist. Even then, the bracelet is in a small fraction of the photograph and I find that the hand actually takes away from it.


I also found that I wanted to see a close up of the bracelets just so I could see the intricate patterns that you've created. They are beautiful but the photos from afar doesn't give a potential customer a real good look at it. At least that's my opinion (but I'm also very detailed oriented and I like to see what something looks like up close).


My recommendation would be to have one photo from afar like you do and then zoom in and show the bracelet on the wrist, not necessarily on the entire hand/arm if that makes sense. I think that would really make your work pop.

One thing I think could help is having a closeup photo of each.  The bracelets look pretty, and there's nothing wrong with the shots with the hand sculpture in them.  Keep those.  But add at least one shot of a closeup photo of a section of the bracelet so people can see what they *really*.  Look like.  The distance was a little frustrating for me.

Hi Larissa,Thank you so much for your feedback. It is giving me a good ideas of what I need to do.
I was wondering if you clicked on the photo twice? I thought I set it up so if you clicked the photo twice it would go to a much large image.

Again, thank you
Ann

You're right, it does go larger.  I just mean a really close closeup.  Maybe I'm being picky.  When everyone else wakes up, hopefully they can tell you if I'm nuts or on the mark.

I think your photos are the problem in a few ways.  I like the wrist but I think you could have the idea of the wrist with less fingers and wrist and be a bit tighter on the bracelets in your main pictures.  I agree with the rest about needing some closeup pictures as well. I think the best thing you could do would be to use a less saturated color as the background.  Perhaps a paler blue, I think the background stands out more than the bracelets and I think it makes it harder to make out the colors of the bracelets themselves.  I also think that while using the same hand, I would like to see different positions to make the page more interesting and to make it clearer that the bracelets differ in more than color.  With all that said, what I do is not generating sales.

It's beautiful as are all the ones in your shop! I will not give advice on pictures because I am no expert. Not even close. I do think your prices are very fair. It's a good amount of work to create one of those. Best of luck!

Very pretty, love the color combination.

I have no suggestions for your photos, I think they look good.

Lovely work and welcome to Handmade Artists'
The only suggestion I have is the photos look a little over processed, too white washed if that makes any sense.
The last photo you posted is my favorite, I think that one is very nice.
Shared by the way! :D

I agree, the close up shot is wonderful and you can really see the gorgeous details you've put into the piece!

 Hi Everyone,
 
Thank you so much for your great feedback and, for liking my work. It has helped me to see what I need to do in making my photos better in my listing. I too like the larger photo as well. It also has been darkened. Which I think brings out more details of the bracelet.  I have been checking around and found that the pricing seems to be in the ball park with other handmade beaded bracelets. Also, thank you Chainmaille for the warm welcome. It is great being here!  I will hope to get more involved as time goes on.   
 
 Again, thank you everyone and may God bless!
 Miss Ann
