I am taking a course at the New York Institute of Art and Design and these pieces were a few of my home work admissions.

I made these pieces out of copper wire and ceramic beads.

I posted them here because I am in the middle of revamping my Etsy shop and would appreciate opinions on what tag words to use and in describing their style.

I make the copper links by hand out of copper wire. The wire frames were also done by me.

  1. Hi Beverly, I would start out by listing words describing:
    – the type of jewelry piece
    – the colors in the piece
    – the raw materials used
    – the components used
    – the jewelry techniques used
    – the general size (small, medium, large) and measurements
    – the mood / style / era
    – any particular occasions / holidays / usages
    – any particular users targeted for the piece
    – your name or shop name, whichever you go by

    I hope this gives you a good jumpstart with brainstorming your tags and product listings! 🙂

  2. Oh my goodness! These are just wonderful. I like your aesthetic very much. And appreciate how beautifully work-hardened, patinaed and secure everything is. It appears that you have also made sure they drape well. In a shop I would immediately pick one up to test the hang and drape. Perhaps a photo showing that would be helpful to an online buyer?

    I just LOVE your style! These are absolutely beautiful. Rustic…earthy…unique…

  4. I am trying to keep my product listing title short and to the point. I also list materials used in each piece and their measurements/ sizes. I plan on redoing the photos in each listing and making them more cohesive. I hand made some display bust to show how the pieces drape when worn.

    Its the mood/style that is hard for me. I have had people tell me it is boho chic, ancient tribal (not exactly sure what that even means), primitive. I have had people describe my jewelry as organic, sculptural, textural, tactile (they just want to pick it up and touch it), all of which I know could be used as tag words.

    I try to make my pieces as secure and durable as possible, I want them to look like heirloom pieces dug up from some where and then passed on through the generations.

  5. Your pieces are lovely and I would use all the words you have above ^^^ – you have found that they are different things to different people. Be simple in the title but I would imagine there is a place for metadata and key words on your listings? I don’t sell with Etsy but I know they have good user groups so you might start there.

  6. On Etsy you would want to maximize the words in your title as that helps the SEO. I might use words like the ones people have told you but also refer to handmade, one-of-a-kind, amulet, hand formed links, etc. What sets you apart from the pack? Play that up.
