Bead Show!

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on September 23, 2010 by jillian416

Today was the Rings & Things bead show in Rochester, NY.  They happen about twice a year but I’ve only gone once before.  The first time I went I was so very overwhelmed.  Just picture an entire banquet room full of tables AND tables of beads.

Any kind of bead!  Czech glass, gemstones, crystal, Quartz, Agate….on and on, it is like a bead Utopia.

The first time I spent hours, pouring over almost all of the beads there.  Each table has oodles (yes I said oodles) of different beads so it pays to spend the time perusing through each tray.  I wanted to touch every single strand and see if I could envision some sort of special jewelry made with those beads.  When it came time to go through and see what I could afford, it broke my heart to part with some of the strands because they were just so beautiful and I feared I’d never find them again.

This time was a entirely different experience!  I knew what to expect when I walked in.  I was beyond happy being surrounded by some of the things I love most in this world (beads & findings) but I wasn’t overwhelmed.  I didn’t feel the need to spend hours and hours pouring over each table and tray. I walked slowly past each display and scanned through what they had.  I found many beautiful new pretties (see below) but I was in and out (including checkout) within 1 hour.  I didn’t feel rushed or pressured but I knew that they would come back again and I would find even more gorgeous stuff the next time they came around.

I thought I’d share pictures of some of my new beads below:

It is only a matter of time before these beads become beautiful new, necklaces, earrings or bracelets.  I had a blast today, it is so fun to be surrounded by people that have a similar love that you do.  You just feel inspiration emanating from the room.

Till next time…

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!

So Fortunate!
