K, here's a little tip for her. I don't think selling directly from a blog is the way to go. She needs to set up an Etsy account. It's has huge volumes of traffic so her jewelery can be seen. www.etsy.com is the address, its quick and easy, and free to set up an account. It does cost a small amount $0.20 to list each item, but the fee is worth the increase in traffic. I think she should list her jewelry on Etsy, but keep blogging about it to increase traffic even more. Just a few tips from personal experience. Also, it might be better to move this post to the right board to get more advice. There is a Crafty business board. There is even a separate board for Etsy advice.

Very pretty pieces, I agree, etsy or artfire are both good, viable selling options, though artfire is still pretty new.  Also . . . her prices, especially on her earrings, seemed pretty low!  I don't think she could make much profit, selling earrings for only $3.  Even the Evil Big Box stores charge more than that!
