    Cheap Sterling anyone?

    I've tried the wire from FMG, as I simply can't afford sterling right now. If my choices are this or enameled copper, I'd much rather this. And I find the fact that it won't tarnish like sterling will, for much less cost is pretty convincing for my customers.

    Looking for some selling advice

    Hello all! I just wanted to pop by and say a HUUUUGE thank you to everyone for all the amazing help! You have no idea how much all of it is really appreciated. I'm still hard at work, I only have my ArtFire shop at the moment (I debated re-listing on Etsy again, but I'm reeeally leery since they changed their privacy policy, I've been hearing many horror stories already, so I'm glad I made the decision to leave when I did), and it is looking much prettier than it used to And I'm working at adding new items as often as possible. My domain name has FINALLY been transferred, but until I learn a little more, I just have it pointing to my AF site. So really, not a lot has changed, still plodding along, finally learing to have a little patience with this whole process. I just wanted to take a minute to say thanks! If I could buy you all a beer, I totally would!

    Sadly, Etc. is now gone Just one of the many changes happening over at E. right now, with really no explanations from admin. Hence the closing of my shop there. It's really not the place it used to be.... I suppose for a buyer ArtFire probably isn't all that different, other than not having to be registered to buy (which I LOVE, I know I've lost sales on E. because of that), but VERY different from a seller's perspective. I'm just happy to not have to play the re-listing game. Bad for SEO... I don't even know what CSS is , lol. But thank you so much for that link, I'm gonna go start learning right now! Seriously, I cannot thank you enough for spending all this time! Cheers!

    Wow, that's a lot of info to take in, thank you soooo much! In the meantime, in light of all the craziness going on over at Etsy right now, I've closed my shop there. Well actually, I've delisted all my items and changed my announcement to redirect people to my ArtFire site, which I'm sure will get me shut down in no time I've been doing fairly well at ArtFire, considering I've only been there a couple of months, learning a LOT about SEO. But now I have to start all over with my own domain. The reason I went with Soopsee was the simplicity, I know exactly ZERO about building a site, so it seemed like a logical step at the time. But since my only option there is to link to my etsy shop.... This would be much easier if I didn't have a full time day job & could concentrate on at least learning how to do all this stuff, but for now it's just a little here and a little there. With ArtFire, I apparently have the ability to put my RapidCart directly on my own website (whenever I finally get it up and running again), so I assume that means customers would essentially be buying directly from my site, as ArtFire doesn't require registration to buy, but you clearly know a lot more than I do about how all this stuff works, what do you think?

    It's my first time trying a spiral, but I'll definitely try that on the next one, thanks!

    Question about spiral chain

    So I've got a really nice spiral chain going, using 20 g. 1/8" sterling, just wondering: once I get it finished, how do I get it to stay put? Right now when it hangs, just kind of looks like a mish-mash.

    Yikes. All that website stuff still makes 0 sense to me. How sad am I??? LOL. But I appreciate the suggestions, I'll have to source some help, but I'm sure eventually I'll get it. I'm gonna transfer my domain away from SoopSee once I learn a little more, I'm really annoyed that you can't get past the first page because the page numbers are hidden by that footer. Grr! I've heard good things about Dreamhost, but I gotta learn more about coding & such first. I'm definitely more comfortable with the photography since getting my OttLites, those things are AMAZING. Speaking of amazing, I can't believe you took those photos with a phone! Wow! I can't imagine what you could do with a professional camera!

    EEEE! I think I may have finally found the answer to all of my photo woes! I picked up a couple OttLites on the advice of another etsy seller, and WOW! Expensive, but I'm thinking this may just be one of the best investments I've ever made! I'll keep you posted....
