New Items!

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on October 30, 2010 by jillian416

So I have a bunch of new items that I’ve made and will be adding to my shop soon and I wanted to share some of them here!

Studs are new to my shop, I’ve only started adding them within the last month but I am really in love with them and will definitely be adding more as time goes on.

 

Right now deep purples in shades of Concorde grape or eggplant are huge!

I have more to post but I don’t want to ruin the surprise before they’re in my shop, so keep checking back here and at jillianmackowiak.etsy.com for all future items.

Thanks for visiting!

Recently I was fortunate enough to be asked to make jewelry for a very dear friend’s wedding.  I had the most amazing time designing and then creating it.

Her wedding was this past Saturday, 10/23/10 and I wanted to share some pictures of what I made.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Isn’t it all gorgeous???

I am really proud of the work I did and just couldn’t wait to share it with you all.

I have a couple craft shows coming up at the end of November and early December that I have been working hard on getting all my products ready. Which is why I’ve been absent for so long, I hope to be around more and keep you updated of the great things to come in my shop!

Important Words

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on September 22, 2010 by jillian416

Every month Etsy let’s their sellers and buyers know what words they will be looking for.  These are the words that they recommend sellers tag their items with and the words that buyers search for items  for.

Etsy is pretty up front about what types of things they’re going to look to feature on their front page, blogs or emails.  It isn’t a deep hidden secret, it just takes some research and reading.  The best way to get your treasury to the front page is to choose items that fit these descriptive words and then tag the treasury as such.

Since I am such a sweet person, I decided to do the leg work for you this month and share some of the important KEYwords.  You can see the article I pulled them from in it’s entirety here.

Please remember this list isn’t all inclusive!

  • Halloween
  • black
  • gray
  • blood red
  • dark arts
  • vampires
  • steampunk
  • scary
  • creepy
  • gourds / pumpkins
  • orchard / vineyard
  • woodland
  • Fall
  • Autumn
  • Opal
  • Libra
  • Scorpio
  • foxes
  • bears
  • owls
  • acrons
  • pine cones
  • leaves
  • feathers
  • foliage
  • plaid
  • camel
  • rust
  • turquoise
  • mustards
  • deep berry
  • wine
  • muted greens

Notice how almost all have to do with Autumn and Fall or the colors or themes that represent those so well.  Tis that season!

When tagging items and treasuries it is also important to use accurate tags that actually describe the product you’re listing or including.  When you start just adding tags to get noticed, people DO notice and it really puts a damper on your Etsy reputation.

Happy Etsy Selling!

Facebook Fan Page

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on September 11, 2010 by jillian416

So finally after being in business for almost 2 yrs I created a Facebook fanpage!  (Sound the trumpets)

Jewelry by Jillian <— (go ahead and click on the link, it will take you directly to my fan page)

Facebook Fan Page Profile Pic

I had been trying to decide if I wanted one or not because I was getting quite a bit of business by just posting new listings on my own personal Facebook page.  But after having it created for only about 3 days, I can see the value in having a fan page.   I’m currently up to 58 fans and I hope that number continues to grow.  I’m honored that people find my items nice, pretty, fancy enough to buy and wear.

I’m slowly but surely adding pictures of all the items in my shop, plus I plan on continuing to add to it as I add new items to my shop.

Right now I’ve been pretty busy with getting my wholesale order ready as well as a few different regular orders from Etsy.  I also will be starting on some wedding jewelry for a friend soon so lots of new items will be coming but slowly!

Here’s a little peak into my crazy world of supplies.  Underneath all those pieces is the table I work on…someday I’ll see it again.  😀

Till next time — happy beading!

So Fortunate!
