Introducing myself - newbie

Just joined iCraft this month to dip my toes into the online market again. I tried selling online a few years ago, but gave up when I only had a couple of sales. I make jewellery using a variety of techniques, from metalsmithing, fold-forming, hammering & chasing, soft soldering, chainmaille, Viking knit, wire weaving and upcycling.

My new favourite forms are recycling silver into new work by melting the silver down, and using soft solder to create accents and texture on various metals, including copper, brass, and silver-filled. As I am growing older myself, I have begun to have an appreciation for how things naturally occur, embracing the organic feel and imperfection of how the metal moves and flows to create beautiful pieces.

My shop is GwensArtisanJewellery. I would appreciate any advice on how to improve it and maybe even start making some sales.

Hi Gwen,

Thanks for joining! Smiley

Your items are very interesting, nice photos, product titles and descriptions. Not sure what I'd improve.
Did you know that you can now add videos of your products to your product pages?

We also want to add badges to "Upcycled/Recycled Items", as those are the things that buyers care about and we want this info to stand out more.

Thank you for the advice. As I am not familiar with the badges, is there somewhere I can look for instructions on how to add them to the Upcycled/recycled products. I wasn't sure how to make those products more visible.

Thank you again, Gwen

We don't have badges created yet, but were thinking of doing it soon Smiley

Okay, I will look forward to that being added on. Sounds like you have lots of changes planned. I am looking forward to the site being more mobile-friendly myself. Would be awesome to have an app for the site.

Thank you, Gwen
