Just thought I would post a quick introduction. This site has been recommended to me on another fourm as a source of great insight so i've joined up.
My name is Alison and currently I design and make bridal jewellery and tiaras. I usually sell things at wedding fairs, a local dress shop and a local beautician.
I am now on maternity leave and I have made a decision to use this time to try do something i've sworn i would do for the last year... get myself online.
I did try and fail with ebay last summer, mostly I think because I just cannot seem to get a good picture no matter what I try. :mad::mad:
I hope to be able to have a working completely functunal website by the time i return to my regular work in March 2009. :confused:

Hi and (welcome). Good luck with it all, baby, business - you are going to be busy!!.
I am realising that ebay is really not a good place to sell handmade stuff. In my experience everyone on ebay wants a bargin. Have you tried etsy? www.etsy.com (http://www.etsy.com) Its cheaper fees and reaches a far wider audience and is just handmade stuff. The only problem is that its massive!.
Have fun setting up your website. There is lots of advice on here for you - thats how I got started!.

Thanks once again forthe warm welcome.
I feel things are going ok. website domain is already registered. Colour scheme has been planned out. I am now working on some creative descriptions for each peice and a few pages of information on me/us and what we do. :o It's actually alot harder than I thought.
I really did think that I could set up a basic store and knock together the bones in a few day but in reality the written word is alot less expressive than the spoken word and I just feel it seems 'flat'.
I had a lovely arrangment with the owner of my local bead shop. I would tell him what i needed and he would get it from his supplier. He made a little and I got my bead a a fraction less than 'retail' price with no P&P. The store has sadly been placed into receivership so I am on the hunt for a new supplier :o
Anyone has any recomendations for a suppliers of swarovski crystals and pearls as well as sterling silver and gold/silver plated findings then please tell me if it's allowed.
