Earrings and necklaces... Watch

Hi All.

These are some of the things I've been making recently, it interests me and it goes towards my field of chosen study.

In a desperate attempt to start raising funds for next years university fees (erm, and next terms!), I've decided to try the fund raising technique that got me through my first degree - jewellery making.

While it was easy to sell to 'boho' shops in both Swansea and Oxford, it's probably going to be harder to find anywhere like that near to where I currently live, and I don't really have the time to dedicate to finding outlets, so I've decided to try selling on e-bay.

The beauty of selling on e-bay is that there's no shop to put a further mark up on the products to make a profit, and I'm trying not to be greedy with what I ask for. The problems are getting word out and building up a client base, so I'm hoping I might get feedback, offers of both from friends on here.

Everything listed is made in silver plate or gilt (although I can do sterling silver - just ask), none of my material are 'salvaged', so you can be sure everything is new and as sterile as this kind of jewellery can be.

If anyone wants anything particular earring wise, i.e. specific combinations of beads and colours, I can probably do it, just ask! I'll also be adding to my collection over the next few weeks, I'm just waiting for my camera batteries to recharge so I can put the few necklaces I have up and hopefully I'll put together some more chokers and other necklaces when I get the chance.

Some items may make nice 'I love you' or 'thank you' trinkets for loved ones and friends, and it's Mothers day next month...

Thanks for looking

Sure - what sort of thing are you after? I have plenty of the Onyx-like beads left, so if you can find a picture of a style you like, I'll see what I can do.

Thanks

That's very kind of you to say so . I used to make things that were a lot more elaborate, but until I get myself re-established, I'm going to KISS! (Keep it simple but sparkly!).

Hope you have a great birthday!

Hi All,

As it was a bit naughty of me to be pushing my wears on here, the mods have asked that I do not 'actively' advertise on here, but to put stuff in my sig. So I have!

Hopefully more stuff will be going up on ebay over the next few days, otherwise you can buy direct from me from my 'photobucket' album [see signature] - prices on request!

Thanks for all your kind words and encouragement (and purchases!!) .

Hugs, fxxx

A bit p!ssing unfair that I got an alert for posting one of my eBay auctions, which was then deleted, and you get away with it. :mad: You can't allow one person to do it, and enforce the rule on everybody else.

I love the earrings! But why does it on Ebay in the paypal box with pics of credit cards show Visa Electron but on the paypal site it doesn't accept it as a form of payment?

I know I said I wouldn't post, but just wanted to thank you for your comments (and your orders!), and address the price comment.

I sentyour necklace yesterday, so hopefully it is with you now, I'll post off your earrings later today if I get the chance [I need to try and knock out a presentation on palliative care in stroke today, so am not 100% sure if I'll have time to get to the PO].

I thought I'd start pricing low to see if there was any interest. I'm only making a small profit, but want to try to get established first...

Thanks again!
