Your work is beautiful! I love the Colors, but just at first glance, your click ons to see the product are very tiny and the Peach or Pink background makes the text of Blue hard to read also the Dark yellow with the pink text. Perhaps tone down the background colors so easy to read and bold the text aswell. Congradulations to you!
oh.....prices maybe low your work takes alot of time.
Best of Luck

 Cheesy  I just wanted to thank all of you guys for responding to my post.  All of your advice has been very helpful, although I also would like to know how to redirect more people to come to your site and buy stuff.  Ideas???

The bright colors are great. Very uplifting. I agree that the pictures are too slow to load. You're going to lose some business from people who have slow dial up. I use Photoshop to save my photos for the web. It compresses the pictures so that they are smaller. You will lose some quality, but hopefully not the customers!

Great stuff!  I'm loving the hoops with the off-center flowers..  Smiley  I agree that the avante garde layout and colors really complement your style and design..  One thing I would highly suggest is to work on your purchase flow.  As a business person I can totally understand wanting to accept reliable, verifiable sources of money like money orders and cash when you are just starting, but to your customers this might come off as really sketchy.  And it might become a barrier that keeps a browser from becoming a buyer.  Perhaps something like Paypal since its so easy to set up?   Otherwise their path through your site may look something like:

"Ooh, cool site"  -> "Ooh, I really like those earrings"  ->  "Drat, I can't pay online and it'll take 15 days to get here"  -> off the site
