My wife's jewelry creations...Update June 20th

Last edited Sat Jun 20, 2020, 11:03 AM - Edit history (3)

Update 62020
Thank you to everyone for your support. Thanks to your help she has been able to renew her website:

https://www.monicasvintagejewels.com/





Would be nice if it got some interest. We only got stimulus check for one and only have one SSI income right now.

Her regular website is down so to purchase you will need to contact her via email. monicasvintagejewels@gmail.com
She has Square and PayPal and can take secure payments.

Can't afford the website till August when her SSI kicks in.

Currently available with prices:

2. Etsy is crap. Too many problems and their marketing sucks.

She had a website but we can't afford it right now, so it is down.

10. It costs money to sell on Etsy, too. Sometimes more than just having your own website.

Etsy charges a flat fee for each item listed, each lasts only three months and you have to pay again to renew them. They take a percentage of the entire sale, including shipping even tho you have to spend that to mail the orders. They've always submitted a certain number of listings to Google Shopping every month free to the shop owners. Now they take a percentage of any sales that result from that, and shop owners are not allowed to opt out of the program.

And don't even get me started on the games they play with their algorithms, both on their site and Google. It's not a nice place to sell anymore and hasn't been for a very long time now.

Edited spelling and clarification.

3. Really lovely, contemporary stuff!

She could definitely make some money, especially if she's using good gemstones. I've seen items like the necklaces for $150-300, depending on gems and design.

6. Wonderful, I love half of them

and like the rest. The style is lovely. My friends make jewelry but neither is able to afford to make a living off of it. Too bad.

8. Since you use square

They have a free online store platform makes it much easier for people to purchase, I linked with my website and have had increasing sales. I am on ebay and etsy, dont want to be but at this time its about getting exposure. All our art shows are cancelled that's about 75 percent of my income.

Tutorial here for setup, it is easy to do.

12. Beautiful

I received the earrings I had purchased. I was so happy to have found such a unique gift to give my granddaughters for Christmas. Easiest shopping with the fastest delivery ever. I am bookmarking the website.
