Oooh I like the uncommon knits one.  :) Hmmm maybe I should switch my banner around to have the "knitted metal" part more prominent. Definitely something to think about.

I left this thread for awhile and came back to find more responses, thank you!

A couple of you mentioned not knowing that I made jewelry based on my name alone. Do you have any suggestions for clarifying that without changing the "BooJay" part of my name?

Makinthebestofit - I was experimenting with a darker background, but no one likes it so I'm switching back to the white one.

Thanks again for your thoughts!

Misspellings? Yikes I'll get on that! And thanks for the link, I'll work on adding metric measurements.

Thanks for your encouraging words. When I started this little adventure I was knitting baby hats and flower clips, but the best response has been for the knitted wire jewelry, so that's what I've been focusing on.

First, let me say that I'm VERY new to HAS, but I have a few months' experience selling on other venues.

Your pieces are gorgeous. I especially like your pearl and wire wrapped pieces.

First, I agree with the PP about the pics. I also had to deal with a basic camera for awhile, and what helped me was upping saturation and shadows a little, using picnik or picasa. That "popped" my things out from the background. Great idea for the light box, btw. Where did you get it?

Second, your prices seem a little low compared to similar items. Maybe raise them a little and see what happens to your views?

Good luck!

I'm pretty new to HAS and so far and was wondering if anyone would consider critiquing my shop? Every venue is so different, and what works for one may not work for another. My views are pretty good - MUCH higher than my more established shop - but no sales yet.

Also, how long were you on HAS before you got your first sale?

My HAS shop is

Hi, I'm BooJay. I knit with metal to make dainty looking (but deceptively sturdy) jewelry. I add beads, crystals, and pearls for extra shimmer.

I recently found HAS and opened a shop here. Can't wait for a sale! :)

There's not much else to tell about me. I'm a wife, mom, knitter, amateur photographer.

If you're on Google+ you can find me here: I love connecting with other artists.

I'm also on Artfire - my full inventory is on there, so if you want to see more check out
