Etsy is for handmade items. But yes, it does get a lot of traffic. It's been featured on the Martha Stewart Show, Rachel Ray's show, even Oprah has mentioned Etsy a few times (Martha Stewart has brought Etsy sellers on her show several times and some of those sellers made upwards on 40 sales just in that 1 day!)Etsy has also been mentioned by Fox Business news, has large wrte-ups in the NY Times Magazine, etc. I've made sales worldwide, several in Europe, a few in Australia, etc. Just a suggestion... I'm not sure where you live, but- there is a new law in California called the Lead in Jewelry Act (started in March, 2008) and if you aren't sure about the lead content of your items, you may want to exclude sales to customers in Calif. or at least think real hard about selling there. I believe the fine is $2,500 if you sell jewelry that exceeds their legal limits...just something to think about! I did check out your site, it's very nice! Is this handmade jewelry or jewelry you have purchased? Your prices are very reasonable and you should do well. If you are the one creating these pieces, then you probably should consider Etsy. They do get a lot of traffic (but jewelry is one of the most competitive catagories)and I've had months where I made a dozen sales. I'm going to forward your site link to one of my friends, she wears jewelry that kinda resembles a few of your pieces... so maybe she'll open her purse and buy a piece or three. Best of Luck with your new site!!

You could make a blog - write about a piece of jewelry you sell each day - then join up on sites like entrecard and blogcatalog & stumble your pages - i am getting 100-300 people to my site each day from this and my sites are still less than 3 months old!

I will take a look, go check out my blog too. I am actually doing a lot of the same thing, maybe we can link together. I want a blog that allows my friends on here to link together so we can get more traffic all around. What do you think? Oh Congrats... Ainge

I just checked out your website! Very nice, I like the jewelry you are selling. I might just have to go back and order one of the glitter belly button rings.

that would be so awsome LOL, you would be the first buyer from my website. So you think the prices are good? ive seen the same silver rings on there for more expinsive, but i seen some of the same sainless steel for cheaper, too cheap for me to make profit off of if i matched them. they must be making them or something.

I thought your pricing was very good for what you were selling. It might be a few weeks before I can buy the belly button ring. I have alot coming up in the next few weeks! But keep your eyes peeled. I will be back to your site!

Thanks its very good to know things like that, i totally understand not being able to get it right now, i want to get one of your handmade things but wont be able to for SOME time. Your one of the few that i actually liked for my taste. I do like others but they just arnt my taste. I'm not a big jewelry person and on top of that im picky, but im selling jewelry, ironic huh.
