21  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Discussion and Questions / One of my beads in BeadWork Top 100! on: January 27, 2007 07:51:29 AM
I just found out yesterday that beads from my organic Hollow "Rock" bead series have been selected into the BeadWork Magazine Top 100 - Hurray! I don't know what it means exactly Huh but the recognition is nice and hopefully it will also mean some free advertising from that issue. (a link to our site? I hope so!)

Here's a few photos of the beads in question:

Thanks! Tim

A Florence jeweler asked me to create a series of "imperfect" or natural-seeming flat oval beads and these are the results - See what you think and thanks for looking!!

Thanks again - Tim

Just wanted to show-off what I think is a beautiful bracelet that Lily made featuring Swarovski crystal, Japanese Delicas and Italian tubular wire mesh.
Thanks for looking! [Smiley]

24  GLASS CRAFTS / Glass Crafts: Completed Projects / Lampworked Beads: I LOVE this Color! on: December 16, 2006 09:48:21 AM
I've been going crazy with lapis ever since getting my hands on a few kilos of this glass last month. It's just such a dense color! Here's a bead I came up with last night:
(Thanks for looking!  Smiley)

26  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Market Beads on: November 24, 2006 03:01:27 AM
This past summer Lily and I ran across some funky glass beads in one of the open-air markets. Lily finagled a good price (one of her strengths) and we bought the lot. Here's a photo of those beads:

Pretty quickly they all sold. Once gone I decided to make some of my own, which I finally got around to doing. Here's a photo of my version of this bead:

I found them kind of therapeutic to make and went on to make other Colors:

Thanks so much for looking!

27  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Best Keywords - Your Suggestions, Please on: October 06, 2006 03:37:51 AM
If I may, I'd like to attempt to tap into those finely-tuned, crafty minds of yours to assist me in my quest for the best Google-Froogle-Base keywords for our site.

So far I've not had much luck in promoting via Froogle. (which is the Google comparison shopper system that is now morphing into Google Base) I assume that my weak point is my choice of keywords (Labels) and phrases.
We have a bead - beading supply - designer jewelry e-commerce site.r

I've had relatively good success via Google search in sending folks to our site and some via Froogle but not nearly what I'd expect.
Do you have any tips for us on how to maximize our froogle experience? Any juicy keywords and phrases that you'd be willing to share? Or maybe pointers on promotion avenues other than Google that have been successful for you?

Thanks so much for any and all help and comments. As always, it's great to have you folks to ask about this kind of thing.  Smiley
