You've got one in your store already for $25, so if you're questioning your prices, look at some other things first, like product titles, descriptions, tags, and photos.

Your product titles all seem to be "leather bracelet". That's great, but they are really "custom sized leather bracelet woven look red and black" and so on. Then you e-x-p-a-n-d on that in your descriptions, then repeat all the important words in your tags, including words like "punk" and "gothic" etc., for all the different kinds of folks who would wear them.

As for the photos, instead of seeing a bunch of nice bracelets, all I see are different colored hairy arms. Lose the arms. And folks need to see the closures on the bracelets. I would not take a chance on one of those without a clear picture of the quality of the closure.

Thank for the useful advice.I understand what you mean about titles and descriptions,but that`s just commercial "BRAIN WASHING",and I dont do that.
I`m working on those closure photos.The prices are currently too low as far as I am concerned that`s why I`m asking for opinions:)   I did not realize that photos of bracelets on arms can disturb someone that much,at least they give you an idea of what the bracelet really looks like.And lots of people actually like them.

Brainwashing - er, not sure what you mean by that. When someone does a search for something, they use all kinds of words. If those words are not in your titles, tags, or descriptions, someone else's store will be visited, not yours.

Pour yourself a drink, put on some lipstick, and pull yourself together.

Sure, but usually "marketing" means convincing people to buy something that they think they need or want and therefore is very very aggressive.That is the bit I don`t like.Unfortunately most of the marketing,even on etsy, is done this way.

That's not what marketing is at all. Marketing is simply communication - it's up to you whether that communication is soft and appealing or hard and aggressive. Lots of softies do marketing, because they want to make sales.

Let's put it this way: you love making bracelets and you love wearing them. They make you happy. By communicating that to your potential customers (marketing), you can also make them happy when they own their own bracelets made by you. Then everyone is happy. This is your goal, never mind all the notions about marketing and sales. Will someone who doesn't dig leather really going to be persuaded to buy one of your bracelets thinking they will be blessed with until-now-unattainable joy? I think not, so there's no need to worry about conniving innocent buyers.

What you need to work on are the facts and details of the communications - and show some of the happiness.
