I hope this isn't just me being dumb... I would shorten the titles of the items so you know what they are from the gallery thumbnails. For instance, under one of the pics it says "Turquoise Amber and" but from the pic I can't tell what the lovely object might actually be for. So if I'm scanning for a necklace and it turns out to be a bracelet, I won't know that until I click through. Make sense? Your stuff is gorgeous, though!

I think your stuff is cool! My own shop is not Etsy, so I can't really give you any techie feedback, but I think your product rocks!

I don't really have anything to add except that your plate sun catchers are really cool!

I started my Etsy shop back in November and haven't had much success. I think my main problem is not having enough traffic to my shop but I'd like to get advice on everything else. Are my prices too high, etc? I'm really good at getting my things sold in person but the online thing is proving to be troublesome  Undecided
The banner I have there now is a placeholder, I'm working on one that has my name and is more professional looking. Oh, and I know that some of the photos are of sub-par quality, I'm going to be re-photographing this week too.

Hi I would like the opinion of all you lovely crafters on here. I have had a few jewellery items in my Etsy store for the last few weeks. I know I can't expect to start selling straight away due to lack of advertisement etc.

This is the thing a lot of people are looking at my items but none seem to be selling, so here is what I need your help with:

* are my products bad? Badly made or just not nice etc?
* Does my etsy store look a mess?
* Am I charging too much for them?
* Are my photos good enough quality?


Or any other help any of you can offer will be much appreciated.

Thanks for taking the time to read this.

Hugs

your items are cute.

 I personally never buy chains like yours are on.  my preference.
I think most people are just not buying much because things are  so tight financially.   I,  right now,  am saving from "extra"  purchases so I can buy the  craft supplies I want. and for well,  just in case.... 

stick with it maybe things will pick up soon.

I like regular necklace chains.  also I personally prefer an option on size of chain.   for my daughter a 16-18 inch chain is fine  but for me I need   24-26  for a good fit.  (yep fat neck) .... even a strip of jewelry leather or ribbon would be fine by me.
 I have never had good luck with that chain you have on there.   so its an automatic turn off for me.  also I know for me those turn green quickly.  So for teh price I know I would have to but it then but a chain for it. so it takes away from it for me.

the charms are adorable I like them alot!
