Well as the title says, this is some shameless self-promotion here, but I've recently started selling my beaded necklaces online, please have a look at my pieces, and let your friends know!

I also make custom pieces! :)

Thanks!

Some constructive criticism: Add the length of the piece to the description.

I know that I won't be able to wear something that is 18" but I can't tell by the description of the piece.

Nice work - Good luck with your venture.

Cool, the necklaces look very nice :) Good luck to you and maybe I will be one of the customers once I get some cash :hihi:

I also agree with adding more details like length and what beads are made of. It is always good to add as much info as possible, it can also save you some headaches, customers can be a PITA LOL

How do you like etsy? I am planing on opening etsy account for selling some doggy jacketds and halloween costumes I make, they are selling out so far so I wanna try selling them online along with some of my paintings.

Thank you so much! Actually, the materials are listed, but I am working on adding the lengths of the necklaces right now.

So far I really like etsy, I've only made one sale so far, but it was quick and easy, they charge a small fee to list each piece (20¢) and then take a 3.5% cut of each item sold, I think it's pretty reasonable! And they send you a notice of your monthly bill, you don't have to pay it as each piece is listed or sold, which I like as well.

Also, keep me posted on those doggy jackets and halloween costumes, I might be a customer of yours once I get a bit of cash of my own! Halloween is my favorite holiday and I love dressing the dogs up to partake! :hihi:

20c to list and 3.5% cut is not so bad at all. I got to get my stuff together and do it...

And definitley will keep you posted, right now I sold out of costumes but might have to make more depending if this order I'm waiting on will come thruogh :) But jackets are on the way. Once I open etsy account I will do self-promotion on here as well :hihi:

What kind of dogs do you have? :icon_smil

My mom's poodle is on the small size he is kinda tall for toy poodle, my friends toy poodle is shorter than him, he is also very skinny, maybe 12 pounds or less. He has very bad stomach so he gets special food from the vet which he doesn eat so my mom has to make his food for him. My mom rescued him from her friends daughter he didn't have a good life untill my mom, he is very sweet and been through a lot in his short life.

that's sad, I'm so glad your mom is giving him a good life now! the puppy sounds like a sweety! :) Cody is very skinny for his height too and has an easily upsettable stomach, took me a long time to find him a food he likes, he's almost 5 and i've only just found something he likes about 6 months ago! poor thing, as he's gotten older his tummy has gotten less easy to upset though which is good. It was never so bad he needed special food from the vet though. I'm glad your mom has gotten him to eat though! :)

He is a great and very sweet dog I'm not sure how old he is but I wanna say around 7 or 8 . He is very spoiled and hes my moms little baby, he has a life that he deseves now :) Wow that's a long time to find food suitable for a dog, but at least he is doing good now. My sister went through that as well untill she found one store here that specializes in dog food for dogs with allergies and weak stomachs. It's crazy how we get attached to these little guys and willing to do anything for them :)

yup, my dogs are my babies! Luckily, he always ate enough and was always, i'm jsut so happy now that i found a food he actually sits and eats at every feeding, he's put on a little bit of weight, but the dog is just built like a greyhound under his fluff, i don't think he'll ever be stocky at all. Oh well, i love him the way he is! As long as he's happy and healthy, i'm happy! :)

I've added some new things, check it out!

Maybe you'll see something you like, and if you do, I sure hope you'll order it, or even request a custom piece or set! :)
