That's exactly how I feel when I am looking at items! Thank you for the help... I've never really thought that increasing prices would irritate customers, but it makes a lot of sense.

Let there be songs to fill the air...

love crafting

my best advice for you is to buy from someone else first that way you start off your feedback score. that helps that people think they can trust you its not that your new consistency in listing is a major key and getting yourself out there and known is another

Maybe this is just me, but I would take the part about being in highschool out of your bio. I have worked with several people who are age-ist, and didn't like me teaching them/leading them because I was in my 20's and they were in their 30's 40's 50's. 

Your work looks great, and I can tell that you have experience, but something about "highschooler" I think might put some people off.

If you are thinking of doing something like this as a full time profession, then maybe say something like "I thought this Etsy shop would be a great head start for my future plans as an accessory designer, until I can graduate (insert school) in 2011". Something to let people know you take it more seriously than something to keep you busy after school.

Not trying to say you are too young to be selling, b/c you are great at what you do,  and I see several peices I will have to notify my husband of as he has been asking me what I want for my birthday. Just going off of how I have been treated in the professional world before.

Good luck!

After all of that I forgot to say what I originally wanted to which pertains to your specific question of lower priced items.

I think earring especially that are lower priced are a great idea, because I know of myself and a few other people out there are allergic to most earrings, so we only wear them for short periods of time, and special occasions. Therefore I will not spend more than $10-$12 on earrings unless it is something that I just CANNOT live WITHOUT or if they match everything in my closet.
