Hi Shayla Smiley I like your jewelry! I think your prices are appropriate. The lighting in your photos is great, but they're all a lil fuzzy. The keychains are my fave! Good luck with your shop Smiley

"Flat Braided Bracelet"

From the top, you can make your title much more descriptive: Natural cotton braided tribal beads bracelet

From the middle and pictures, what are the beads made of? How big are they (the beads)? How does the bracelet close? It might be a good idea to give some size perspective and show a quarter or dime in the pictures. Pictures, yes, need improvement. There are quite a few photo "how tos" here on Craftster forums, here or in the "business advice" forum.

From the bottom, no keywords? You need keywords, otherwise you'll never show up in search results, even if you do get on the 137th page of results.

Wait a sec, I'm looking at keychains and they have plastic beads. Stay true to your "all natural" label and ditch the plastic. Either use something natural or just knot the ends. The thing with customers is that when they read "all natural", they want it to be 100% or you get labeled with being a false advertiser.

Hi Shayla,
You've got off to a great start! Your products all look very well made. The bracelets are my favourites. The main thing that I would say is that as BeachFae and CraftyChef have mentioned, the pictures seem to be a little out of focus. Also, it appears that you currently don't have any feedback from previous customers which might hurt buyer confidence. You could use social media sites such as Pinterest to increase awareness of your products.
