I can't say that you need to impove on much. I love your jewerly. The necklaces are so beautiful as our the bracelets and earrings. Maybe some dark pieces, that can be worm for winter, or even to Halloween parties. Dark reds and purples.....

YOu asked for it!

you need more sets.... 8-) I love your jewelry!!! I love the giveaway item too!

so yea you have one set... not that I buy many sets but that was the only issue I saw!

Sandy said...

lots of items- good assortment, I agree with the sets- and not just earrings and necklace- like a bracelet/ring/ or necklace earring/ring. Otherwise very nice items..love the bracelets

Tiffany said...

You're jewelry is lovely, and you have a good assortment. My personal preference would be for you to have more items that are all or mostly silver -- not the antiqued silver, but regular silver. Thanks so much for the giveaway item, which is beautiful; I'd share it with my daughter.

Hil'Lesha said...

Honestly, I love the way your jewelry is. Your jewelry is one of the most unique and beautiful pieces I've come across so far. All I can say is keep doing what you're doing, because you're very talented. :)

kygirl said...

looks great to me

Fangirl Jen said...

I guess that I would suggest that you improve your photos. They are very artistic photos, but most of them don't show the entire piece of jewelry.

lisagee said...

It all looks good but better/bigger more artistic photos of your items for sale.
Colorful backgrounds?

Jason said...

More variety perhaps?

Jas hogue @ gmail. com

mar said...

My only suggestion is the names are so long for the items. They are beautiful items, but I have never seen such long names before. thank you

agordon10 said...

you should offer more sets

Katweb said...

there really isn't much to improve, your stuff is beautifeul. Maybe show more of it on actual peole.

Allisa Jacobs said...

Oooh, I loved this bracelet at first sight :)

Ok, so here are some thoughts: the announcement is a bit long, wordy, & clutter-ish. Maybe combine some things, delete unnecessary words/phrases, move info to other sections. Also, I noticed you have your policies mentioned in both profile & policy section. I'm wondering if you can just delete the bit in your profile, so that's nice & clean & just have all your policies listed in one place. When I buy on Etsy I always look at these places & it can really lend a bit of professionalism & personality. Other than that I really like your shop- lovely & original style, nice feeling, good photos, beautiful items.

Hope this is helpful!

Out of the Blue said...

Thanks to everyone for your suggestions so far! This is a wonderful learning experience for me and I hope to incorporate all of your suggestions within the next few weeks!

Croasla0 said...

i love your site and i think the photos of the pieces are amazing! you could always add more pieces...

kdkdkd said...

Love that bracelet. I looked all around your shop, the stuff is fabulous but a few of the pictures make it hard to see the jewelry. For example the LEMON DROPS earrings kind of disappear against the background in the first picture. I like that you take many photo's though. Also, as someone said, seeing them on someone or against a ruler gives an idea of the scale of the piece. Thanks for the contest.

Sunnyvale said...

If you can (the number of items not being too large) I like sites where they give you an option to "view all" so you can see at a glance the choices instead of viewing page by page.

littlelatina said...

I like the lulu glass ring.

M.A. said...

Love the selection of "earrings" but I'd like there to be more "sets" available.

shalamaryta said...

It would be nice if you could add more victorian style jewellery - especially pendants and rings.

damlakayi (at) yahoo.com

Stockton said...

gosh, I don't see a lot to improve in your shop ... maybe include your shop name in your banner! love the bracelet, the little lockets are so sweet ...

Cherie J said...

Would like to see more of a variety in the bracelets offered. A couple of simple one color pieces would be nice for coordinating with a special outfit.

cherierj(at)yahoo(dot)com

Annie said...

I really enjoy your work!

For me, some of the backgrounds in the photos are either too busy or not busy enough for the piece being showed...

That would be the full extent of my constructive critism! :-)

nancyrobster@gmail.com

malleycc said...

I really liked you website. It was easy to move around and moved fast. The only thing I could find that might be improved is the Friday special didn't pop out at me it was the same print as the rest on the front page and maybe could be a bit bolder or brighter to catch the eye. I love you items. The earring with the flowers are beautiful.

mverno said...

the lay out

Moogun said...

Hello, my name is Megan. I love your things very much BUT *dundundun* the sale prices you have aren't exactly sale per se. They're only a few dollars off, lameo! =P But other than that (the already cheap prices) are spectacular! Love it all! xo (moogun@live.com)

BrineS said...

Your store header could be improved. The photo is adorable, yet it needs the logo incorporated with it...not just and understatement (quite literally, it is stated underneath the photot).

More sets.

MamaMay said...

I would improve your tags. If you notice the default search says "Handmade Items: Tags, Titles" meaning that if you use the word earring in the title it is a waste to use it as a tag too.

llinda29 said...

more sets

Colengal said...

Your product is great, the only suggestion I would have is to organize the jewalry into types, ring, pendant, pin, etc.

JAN said...

Your shop looks excellent great stock clearly labelled beautifully photographed and presented your prices are perfect and even your shipping to uk europe ect is very reasonable
sorry but i am hard pushed to seel an fault there

Gosh ,everything is so nice, this was a tough one. The only thing i can think of is maybe your banner is a little boring, but that would never stop me from ordering!!

I think you have some very beautiful, original, well-priced items on your site. I usually don't care for a lot of the hand-made jewelry I see on the web, but your stuff is very nice. I would like to see the fallen leaves in a larger, copper version on their own (no other beads on the earrings), but that's just my own style. I just love a big earring, not really a dainty kinda gal. I do like stud earrings and like that you offer some, they are nice for day or when you have a necklace that should stand out. Thanks!

forgot my contact info before: tgoly[at]yahoo[dot]com

janetfaye said...

I don't think you need improvement.

The jewelry is very pretty.

I would like to see more rings.

mel*~reachforthestars~* said...

Hi!

You are really talented & have great jewelry sold in your shop! Maybe you could advertise your shop to boost sales more? And one thing: Maybe you could consider taking pictures of people wearing the jewelry? Im the kind of person who's unable to picture it on myself.. :S Haha. But im sure you're doing just fine at the moment! :)

Cheers,
Melody

miriama said...

I literally couldn't find fault. I intentionally headed for necklaces because often I can't find how long the necklace is. Yours had lengths listed. I hate short necklaces and love charms on them so maybe you could make more of them. Also pictures of necklaces on are always great. I always appreciate that.

arbrashears said...

This is hard -- your work is absolutely stunning! The only thing I can think of to say -- and it may be something you don't do or want to do as it isn't in line with your artistic style, is to possibly consider having a few jewelry pieces on a smaller scale if that makes sense! I LOVED what I saw on your site. And some of the pieces I also adored but just wouldn't wear because of how much larger they are than the things I am more comfortable wearing (unless it is for a big drama statement on a special occasion) Does that make sense? Also, maybe a couple of pieces in more netral tones (clear glass, gold tones, etc) to add more variety to what you offer. You do great work!

arbrashears(at)msn(dot)com

Jaimee said...

As you know I ADORE this bracelet and the one in your shop just sold yesterday (I'm SOOOO hoping my hubby bought it :) But I thought I'd better enter just in case he didn't.

Your shop is so lovely I'm not quite sure what or if anything needs to be changed but I do like the idea of those "Convertable Bracelet/Necklaces". I'd like to see more of those and,, of course, more locket bracelets!

My fingers are officially crossed!!!

Nathalie Brault said...

Hi to you, actually i think your shop looks very nice and fine the way it is. I'm not the right person to criticize, I think everything is fine as it is. I have a shop of my own and I think you're doing ok. But I'm no professional so.....You do good work so that's all I can say to you.

Tara said...

I think you've done a great job with organizing your shop. I had a hard time finding something to improve on. I guess one suggestion would be to add some richer colors for Fall/Winter. Other than that, it's perfect!

rosannepm said...

I prefer more delicate chains

Reeva said...

awesome items. I'd like to see more variety and more uniqueness in some of the items. I like what i saw tho :) great stuff, so keep up the good work!

agsweeps said...

The only thing I can think of to improve on is to make your pictures bigger or more detailed.

agsweeps [@] hotmail [.] com

Thanks!

Candice said...

I LOVE this bracelet that for the giveaway! What an original idea...why have only one locket when you can have 7! AWESOME!
I think your shop is great. I love the your pictures; it looks like natural, outdoor light (my favorite). Maybe you could show some views of a locket propped open once in a while? And I only say that because I am totally LOOKING for something to suggest.
Really, just keep up the good work!
onlycancan at hotmail dot com

Jess said...

Maybe more choker length or multi-layer pieces? I like the overall style but for someone short like me I tend to look for shorter lengths or chokers just for some variety. You have the Divine necklace, but it's the only one currently posted with two strands. And definitely some darker colors would be awesome. Still, nice pieces!

cindy said...

It's hard to find anything that needs improvement to your shop. Your prices are good, jewelry is pretty and keeps within your niche. Your photography is good also. The only negative I can say with the photos, is in some pictures when you have a smaller item, say earrings, the side (of the frame) that is in the background, can somewhat distract from a smaller piece. (Minor detail though.)

LadyJemima said...

I agree, there isn't much to critique. Your prices are totally acceptable and your photography displays your jewelry nicely. One thing that really popped out to me was the collage Keychain. I'd like to see more of them in your shoppe. :)

alexlady said...

really nice!

i think some items don't pop with the natural light... there was a bracelet against bamboo where i wasn't sure where the design ended and the jewelry began. light box maybe? but your stuff is gorgeous.

blogged here: http://alexladydesigns.blogspot.com/

Jessica said...

I tried to find something to criticize about your shop, but was unable. You have a great banner, your policy section is filled out, you have a wonderful selection (there aren't a lot of etsy shops that sell stud earrings), the prices are reasonable, if not lower than they could be, and your shipping costs are wonderful. I looked at all the things that usually bug me and you don't have any problems as far as I'm concerned... Keep up the good work! :)

Kari said...

I simply love your jewelry :) I cannot find one thing to improve on, seriously love everything.

rocknrollmcmama said...

Trying to find anything to criticize in your shop is nearly impossible. You have gorgeous, unique jewelry and I wouldn't mind owning it all! The only thing that maybe I would change, and maybe not would just to make all of your backgrounds more uniform, but I don't know, it looks great!

Digital Misfit said...

Wow - and here I thought I could stumble upon some easy common mistakes in a shop - but you seem to be doing everything right!
You are tagging properly, using multiple photos, good titles, etc.
And of course the jewelry is GORGEOUS and very reasonably priced. I will be hearting your shop, not criticizing it!
My only small suggestion is to get some photos in natural light, perhaps outdoors. Try including more rich colored backgrounds that will enhance the metals and stones you use. Great pics = more treasury features!
btw - love the Emily compass earrings (and that is a fab photo!)

desikitteh said...

oooooh, i so wanna give that to my mum.

Smooshy said...

The jewelry's phenomenal but as far as improvements go... lower prices...? :D

Bebemiqui said...

I like the backgrounds on your jewelry and your sign is great too. I didn't really see any issues.
bebemiqui82(at)yahoo(dot)com

gunzie said...

I love your jewelry! Love the pictures you've taken, prices are reasonable. Keep doing what you're doing.
If you need more inspiration on the photographs, maybe take pictures of the necklaces on natural stone, branches,...
Thanks for the fantastic giveaway!

ann dot guns at mac dot com

Xenia S said...

Great jewelry! Your items are gorgeous, maybe have more pictures of them on actual people so that it's easier to get an idea of the size, etc.

Thanks!
xpsundell(at)gmail(dot)com

Wehaf said...

Your work is beautiful, and your photography is too, but for the main photograph for each piece I would make sure the background is not distracting.

urchiken at gmail dot com

jag said...

Wow, great site. I can't see much you could improve on. Maybe offer earring/necklace sets? Also, maybe show a close-up of the clasp (or do a FAQ of clasp types). I am not 100% sure what a lobster clasp etc is.

julie said...

love your site...wow..everyone pretty much said it all...I like the suggestion of keeping the names simple..so I second that
3beez at bellsouth dot net

PS said...

Totally personal, but I don't like the photos of the jewelery on the "wicker" looking white background. The texture is unflattering to the jewelry.

AmandaSue said...

Your jewelry is very pretty, my suggestion would be to have a picture of the item on either have a manaquin (spelling?) or a person, that way people can get a better feeling of the size of the jewelry, sometimes its easier to see it from farther away instead of just a close up :)

Cassie said...

I would love to see a hair piece that is beaded with the top part being a figure 8 that has a stick to hold your hair together in a bun. Is that confusing? I love your stuff. I hate to say what you need to do because it feels like I'm saying it's not good enough already.

Tuesday Girl said...

It really looks fine to me, but maybe the items would look better with a darker background to stand out better.

tuesdayef (at) aol dot com

Fuji Mama said...

I absolutely love your stuff! If anything, I see lots of the same beautiful vintage colors. I would love to see more of the deeper/richer jewel tones--ruby, sapphire, etc. That's all I can think of!

Five O'Clock Somewhere said...

wow, I love your jewelry! I especially like the INDIAN SUMMER charm necklace, very cool!

Stacy said...

More sets, because they make great gifts.

hetz-junk(at)hotmail(dot)com

Mrs. Csirke said...

you have some beautiful bracelets, I would love to see more of them.

Renee said...

Sometimes for me it's hard to judge just how big or small a piece is from a photo and despriction alone. Maybe a few more photos with body parts? (I did see the ring on a hand.)
I love the locket bracelet. I have always liked lockets. This is very cool. I like your creativity.
Thanks!
chefskate at aol dot com

Erica G said...

The items are beautiful but it is hard to tell how big or small they are. If you could put them next to something we can relate th esize to that would be great.

egreca (at) hotmail {dot} com

Mammaratzi said...

I like the navigation sections you have set up, but to be consistent, change brooch to brooches. It's also really weird to see a seperate category called destash, since I never heard of that. Okay, it did make me curious enough to look, but it was kinda weird. The copper star loops would make a really cool Christmas tree. If you have a lot, I'd be interested in seeing a tree of them used to display some earring "ornaments." Egads. What's wrong with me? It's not even Halloween and I'm thinking Christmas? Ah well, when you craft things you gotta plan ahead sometimes.

Nice site.

Mommyhood is Thankless said...

I would love to see some anklets. I don't like to wear bracelts as they make me feel like I am wearing a watch and I keep checking the time!

Chrissy said...

My suggestion is to add more pins. Thanks for a chance to win :-)

jptaylorfamily said...

I can't find anything wrong with your shop! You have great photos, all your shop policies are there. Sorry I can't be of more help

Heather said...

Wow. there really isn't much to improve upon. The jewerly is beautiful, the prices are reasonable and your etsy header matches the style of your jewerly.

I guess if anything I would suggest is experimenting more with colours. Bright, dark, pastel, neon...

Betsy said...

Nice photos, nice jewelry, great prices...I don't know!! How about modeling some jewelry for pictures???

Kimberly said...

Are you kidding? If anything you should add MORE products! LOL!!!

I went through your site and check out some of the items I liked the most. The prices were MORE then reasonable for beautiful unique jewelry. In fact I think on some items you could charge more.

The pictures are all great. I am a freelance photographer and I don't see anything wrong with your pictures.

I'm sorry that I couldn't think of any improvements. If anything I can offer you lots of kudos.

Hunnyv "at" Optonline "dot" net

Julia said...

The only thing I could think of to improve on might be the presentation in the pictures. I'd love to see the jewels on a model, with an outfit, or something like that. Lovely items, though!

lindanuts said...

I love the antiqued silver but my daughter would love some of the setting to be sterling silver. She loves the stones and style but needs it to be updated for her age group.
I love that locket bracelet. What a fabulous idea!

Jodi Renshaw said...

Your work is wonderful. My constructive criticism is: Don't photograph on wood backgrounds. It makes your gorgeous jewelry look a bit dull. My opinion. I hope it helps. Thanks!

I love your bobby pins and would love to see more!
Thanks,

Leah said...

I've linked to my blog, I'm off to check your shop now!

Leah said...

I love bobby pins and would like to see more too! There are just a couple of pics that are a bit dark, the lemmon drops is one example. I love your store and love everything about those craft grab bags!!

roseylittlethings said...

I think your prices are good. I think all the pieces are lovely and the pictures are great. I wish someone would give me some opinions about my merchandise too.

blueviolet said...

You have one blue glass cabuchon ring in your shop that's really beautiful. It would be nice of you would have more rings along that vein of styling, the gemstone looking centerpiece. Otherwise, you're doing a pretty darn good job!

erinberry said...

Your shop looks great! Maybe one suggestion would be to place a coin or ruler in the photos with earrings so people can get a good idea of scale.

Nina said...

wow!! your store is fabulous!! this is the first time i had ever heard about your store and you should be very proud of what you have created!! I am particularly in love with the BEACH CHIC soldered glass necklace...what a work of art!! {i have given DH a hint, that it would make a great xmas gift for moi!}

as far as giving you any feedback on what you could do with your store to improve it, i'd offer this suggestion. Another alternate means of a background for photographing your jewelry, would be to use a satin type fabric layered over tiered objects, eg: small boxes etc, and then artistically drape your items over the fabric...i have used this technique before when i photograph my hand made cards...it works really well, and scrunching the fabric in places gives a great soft, lush and flowing appearance.

hope that helps...good luck with your endevours in the future.

Nina

Danielle said...

I tried to find something that you could improve on, but there wasn't much i could find. maybe more jewelry sets? but i loved almost everything in your store!

Perla said...

oh how beautiful! i want in!!!
shannon at haitianroots dot com

Superine said...

A gorgeous piece of jewellry! Hard to find something that has not been said before...
Keep up the good work, you obviously love what you're doing.

Naomi said...

Oh, wow! I love the Little Secrets bracelet. I have always been a big fan of lockets and vintage faux pearls. I'm also a big fan of the K-I-S-S-I-N-G brooch. I like how your stuff looks vintage and pretty and delicate but it also shows your sense of humor.

Professional Mommy said...

I really like many of your pieces. I guess my only advice would be to add more hairpins.

micaela6955 said...

I really like the unique aspect of the locket jewelry. You have a really good assortment of necklaces and earrings-seems like there is something for everyone. I do like the soldered glass pendants however, and perhaps would like so see a few more to choose from, maybe some colorful ones?

micaela6955 at msn dot com

Lilith Silvermane said...

My advice... offer gift certificates and some pin up jewelry. Love those looks! Great giveaway!

LilithSilvermane@gmail.com

bison61 said...

I love to wear bracelets, so maybe more of those

tiramisu392 (at) yahoo.com

jodene said...

Site looks great, I wouldn't recommend changing anything.

frugallm said...

You have a great line of jewelry! Some of your pictures are hard to tell what the item is without looking at the description....ie a bracelet or a necklace. So I guess my suggestion is to take a more "detailed" picture...if that makes sense!

elkmeese at yahoo dot com

Sock Monkey Greetings said...

I think your shop is really nice. The only suggestion I have is to lighten up the background on the photos with dark backgrounds - the white or lighter color backgrounds look great.

sockmonkeygreetings.etsy.com

Jenna said...

Wow - that necklace is adorable. It would be nice if every piee could be shown being worn by someone.

Jessilyn82 said...

I'd love to see the pieces modeled on a live person, it's so much easier to get a feel for how the piece will look on. Beautiful items!

Christina said...

Christina - xristya@rock.com - Some of the photos could be shot more clearly, using either natural light or another form of light. Otherwise, everything on the site is absolutely splendid, and it's a delight to visit! You're certainly a perfectionist!

AmberRose95 said...

You have very nice jewelry! The only improvement I can think of is more holiday items--Halloween, etc. Thank you for the contest!

AmberRose95[at]gmail[dot]com

Mar said...

The only thing I would even consider changing is the earwires on the Amira teardrops. I have to avoid open ear wires as for some reason 1 always seems to work its way around and I lose it.

Holly said...

I'd like to see more chandelier type earrings, just because I like that kind the most.
hollyollyberry[at]gmail.com

MonCherie said...

Love the jewelry, but more gold please...also maybe more sets and themes

Nicole said...

i would love to see more rings! but in general love ur stuff!!

cdrury said...

how about some hair clips and pony tail holders? - I wear my hair cliped back in a pony tail at the nape of my neck and like nice looking clips.
cdrury@gmail.com

Faith said...

Love your pieces...I would say do more with pearls. I love the bracelet you are featuring and I love pearls!

Jennifer said...

I am fascinated by your jewelry! It is really beautiful. My favorite pieces are key to the past and what dreams may come. I hate to give you this advice, however on some of your pieces I think you could stand to raise your prices a bit, if you want to retail in stores. Your things are very classy and unique.Good luck with everything, I hope that helps.

Lia said...

I'll say bobby pins and thanks for the contest. skyskyaa11(at)gmail.com

JillianLVeit said...

Great jewelry. I love to have one bold piece to complete a look.

Aimee M K said...

Hmmm... You've posted quality photos, your shipping and shipping discounts are quite reasonable, and you seem to have a good assortment of items. I'd recommend expanding your accessories section. The bobby pins are great as are the key chains, maybe lower the prices just slightly. Higher prices on smaller items (especially ones like clips and key chains that aren't as dramatic as jewelry) can be a turn-off. Overall, your store and your pieces are lovely!

always_317537 said...

Your jewelry is very impressive. I love jewelry. Thanks for the giveaway.

cuzimgranma said...

I think your site was great pictures were very well done and your prices were really very reasonable I would like to see more matching sets such as ring and ear rings or neclace these a uniqe and Im sure people would ask were did you get that! Thank you!

Rachel said...

Such pretty stuff! I would like to see some of what is written in your profile included in your shop announcement - like the fact that the many of the items are one of a kind.

Rachel

monky said...

I found your website very eye pleasing and you have great items for sale the only thing Ithink would make it better is to organize the jewalry into the type they are (rings, bracelets, etc...)

:) Thank you for the wonderful giveaway! :)

klp1965 said...

nothing everything looks great to me :)

Molly C. said...

The only thing I can think of to tell you, is maybe have more sets available. Other than that, you site is set up really nice, pics are good, and your prices are comparable to other handmade sites. Good job!

jkupc7 said...

Maybe it is just my screen but your pictures make your jewelry look a bit washed out. Otherwise fantastic stuff! :D

jkupc7 at yahoo dot com

SeahorseLady said...

I like the layout of your website; very nicely done.
Your jewelry is very beautiful. I would like to see a few beachy inspired pieces. I love to wear jewelry in the summer and nice pieces can always compliment a nice sundress or tank.
Thank you for the nice giveaway.

Christina said...

Christina - xristya@rock.com - Perhaps fewer visuals of items on a page might be good. The work is so varied that it's a lot to take in at one time, but that could be remedied with fewer items on each page.

dhunt said...

nice

jo1brat said...

More sets especially with christmas coming

djolsen said...

love that "wing and a prayer"
As far as criticism, I can't even spell it, let alone give it, especially to someone that gets out there and takes her knocks with the best of them

more silver

joannaonthelake said...

I love your Out of the Blue Etsy Shop! I have a passion for vintage inspired pieces and immediately fell in love with about a dozen of your items, one of which is the VICTORIAN VIXEN Necklace! Why look for criticism when there isn't any need for it! I am teasing you, in my humble opinion you do not need to improve on anything, just keep tweeking what you are already doing to always kick things up a notch so you are continually growing and evolving as both an artist and a business woman! Does that make sense?? I truly love your jewelry and I also love that you have such a variety of unique and beautiful items that will appeal to a large audience of people! Thank you for the opportunity to enter!

Your jewelry is beautiful. Paging through the website, I would suggest that the photos on the first page should be more straight-on. When I click on a piece, you have great additional photos. Small criticism, and not really necessary, but you asked. :) I've bookmarked your site and will be visiting when I'm doing my holiday shopping!

I would have to say more silver items and maybe anklets.

I liked it - you don't need any improvement

I like that you've organized the jewelry by category (necklace etc.) but what about type (modern, vintage, etc.)

I like your site and bookmarked it. I would say that there could be more sets offered, but there is a nice variety of items. vidomich(at)yahoo(dot)com

I want more memorail type jewelry to honor our dearly departed loved ones.

You might add some pendants that can hung on other necklaces.
