I have been busily tying knots, stringing and playing with shiney things.  I am considering starting to sell online, so need input on how the pictures look,  if they are good enough, dont' have too much glare.....you know all that stuff that drives a gurl crazy lol.  The board I put them on is a regular bulletin board covered with black burlap.  Each picture is labeled, some items I did close ups of.  I posted them on my MySpace to make it easy for all: This is my address, just copy and paste.  I also listed the name of the album.  I thank everyone for your advice, criticisms, and ideas.  I have been told that I should go for the dream, I have many fears on this step, but..... well.....gotta start sometime.

I went into myspace and checked account, not sure but think perhaps you have to have a page there to be able to see photos.  I had a lot on there, and will have to figure out how to get them on here.  I will probably just pull this message until I can figure out something else. 

If the moderator wishes she can pull all these.  I am having issues with the pictures.  All I wanted was opinions on the jewelry really, if it was good enough, if anyone liked it, so I am guessing this is not where it should be. I thank you for your assistance and removal of this message.  I am about 6 months to a year from having a site to sell stuff....so..... a bit early for here.  thank you again

I think your jewelry looks perfectly acceptable and think you should go for it!

One tip is to use small sewing pins instead of push pins.

Also I wouldn't bother with the macrame. It rarely sells for enough to cover costs and a fraction of you time. People are to used to getting perfectly acceptable jewelry like that at the dollar store. Even at cd shops they don't sell for enough to really make it work.

That is my plan......just trying to get them up there to see how they looked.  Believe it or not i sell more of the macrame than anything else, could be cause is real hemp.....could be cause is better made i not know......but is what is selling now.....strange huh?  I would have thought the beaded would go first lol.... I got fooled.  I pay 20 bucks for a kilo of hemp..takes me bout 30 mins to construct the macrame then i sell for 15 for a necklace some as high as 30 depending on what is in them and labor....not too bad a price for the hemp.  Glad you were able to see it.  Back to beading....today is beaded jewelry creation day....heh...tomorrow is school, wed is hemp then thursday school, and then have one big paper due then other days will be split tween the two....
