I feel like this is my most under appreciated item which I adore.
http://www.etsy.com/listing/64448446/kiss-the-girl-necklace

It's so hard to photograph so I think It doesn't look great but it is my first necklace that I just created without looking at ideas or patterns and I love it.  It's odd that I have listed things on and off on etsy and now that I have established myself more and listed more than 3 things, I have had the least amount of success..

I had originally purchased this cross stitch kit for me to make for my mother. I never got time to work on it. Then later to find out she doesn't like the look of the cross stitch on linen. Otherwise I would keep the kit and make it for her. I have free shipping on it and I think it is at a reasonable price. What do you all think?

Could be your pictures- try showing it in "action" or being used as the buyer would use it- Photograph it on a wrist or a cylindrical object to simulate a wrist - you could cover a vegetable can with fabric then slip the bracelet on it This would allow the buyer to see it better

My bows won't go:
http://www.etsy.com/listing/101497895/knit-bow-bright-red-with-optional-pin

Seen less well made and uglier knit or crocheted bows sell on Etsy. I didn't want to copy cat so made my own design. If others since have copied my technique they still don't look as pretty. Then even knit or knitted bow seems to be the top search word that brings people to my shop. I advertise them on Project Wonderful. Yet nothing.

Any advise?

^ your bows look great. i suggest putting a whole outfit together, keep it to the style of your shop or target market, put it on somebody and do their hair etc.. show it modeled on a real person, it makes people think of outfits they would like to stick your bow to  Smiley also alot of people cannot knit, therefore will want to buy your bow, showing its use and style will be helpful i think!

Thanks for the tip! I know using a dummy is not the best, but the problem is I don't have a live model... I'll think about a way to dress my dummy up a bit more.

Other people have suggested I should offer some smaller bows as well. Though personally I prefer my chunky ones, perhaps some buyers have something finer in mind when they search for them. What do you think?

In the meantime I do have good news: I sold the turquoise bow last weekend!

I think buyers would see quite a few uses of a smaller bow over a larger one, and I certainly don't think it's a bad idea at all.

I would think that some might not want the bow to be quite as much of a focal point for their outfit (not that they aren't amazing) and would like something that could be worn with a bit more subtlety, or in places where a bulky bow isn't practical - like in the hair.

Thanks Squiver, yes I think you are quite right. A couple of days ago I listed the one smaller version I had at hand that's not even the most attractive colour and it was hearted pretty soon and at least by one real shopper (as opposed to a seller/very maybe shopper). Will work on more.
