it's absolutely true that on ebay jewelry gets buried. the jewelry market is so over-saturated and no better place as an example for that than eBay. then again, eBay does NOTHING to help their sellers.

i'm glad to know on etsy the environment is a good one and that the traffic is better, plus the forums are nice. like i said i had only heard what i heard, and usually one hears the negative about a venue before the positive.

i also utilize a Squidoo lens as a traffic venue. it's completely free and although you do have to put work into promoting, it is a good atmosphere with all the tools available to put up as much of a display as you like.

promote whatever venue you use in your blog also and make sure the blog gets syndicated. nothing brings in good traffic like a well designed blog.

I have just started on etsy but I think it is a pretty good venue. eBay is horrid.
did someone develop your blog for you or did you do it yourself?

Hi, I recently decided to go back to doing beadwork. It used to be a real passion but I set it aside for working on the computer (both are hard on the wrists and fingers) I used to sell my bead work and I agree that wearing it is a great advertisement-also where you wear it. Going to craft fairs, etc to check out the offerings is great but also if you have on your own stuff, people ask about it. I was very flattered last year when I went to an upscale pow wow wearing my bead work and several people asked me if I had a booth there!

I would suggest too you check out the forum on Bead and Button. There is a huge community there and selling work is much discussed. It's at www.beadandbutton.com

I haven't tried creating a website with my work but I agree that seo is very important. Also, on the bead and button forum you can add a sig and photos of your work there as well. It helps with the traffic.
