Themed Thursday… How do YOU find what You’re looking for?

A question that I’ve had going through my mind for the last few days is, “How does one get their jewelry ‘found’ when the jewelry market is just so oversaturated as it is?” I have heard from others that they renew many, many, many times throughout the day…but what if you don’t want to do that? Are there other options? What are YOU searching for when you look for jewelry?

Here are a few pieces that caught my eye today…

I started my search as ‘sterling silver rings’ – it gave me 1206 pages to look through. As I browsed I realized that I’m really like the stacked ring look…now I’ll search ‘sterling silver stacked rings’ which brings me down to 80 pages…a bit more workable…

I found a lot of rings that caught my eye but I really love the mixture of blue’s and greens in this stacking set:

Ocean blue - sterling silver stacking rings - set of 4 - made to order from preciousjd.

I also like to check out jewelry that is something I don’t know how to make like these Transparent Scribble Pearl Earrings from . AroshaTwists.

The picture of the jewelry is also extremely important when shopping for a new piece in my mind. Which is also probably the second hardest part about selling jewelry online (the first hardest is getting yourself found). This is a pink bouquet wrap around ring from my etsy store, theApple. My photography is not perfect but I do feel that I’m getting better…

Being high up on the search is definitely really important. When I first started looking at bracelets this NEW Serendipity boro lampwork bracelet OOAK - 15 PERCENT OFF SALE from SweetGems was the first item I saw. So, being high up on the search combined with a great picture is a plus…

I guess my final thought on how to get noticed is to have something different from everyone else. Sure, styles are going to be similar in some cases but we, as artists, will add our own style, color combinations, and flair to each piece. This quirky shabby but chic vintage crystals and coins assemblage steampunk necklace with repurposed earring from lilyofthevalley is the last piece I will feature today…I love quirky!

How do you get your items noticed? Do you have any advice for me and my jewelry store, www.theapple.etsy.com?

I did a similar search the other day for citrine (which I really like), and found that the more specific I got, the better my search results. I think I ended up with "wire wrapped citrine drop necklace clear" or something like that.
