Here's my feedback....


- Easy navigation. Nice one. I like it that I can move around your blog easily by simply clicking on any one of the 6 catogories pic.
- Selected earring & pendant designs are truly unique, and for these unique pieces, their prices are reasonable considering they are yours truly designs.
- Naming your product and explaining to your potential customers the meaning behind the name does add a special meaning to it. Eg Garden of Hearts earring. Keep it up.
- Clear order info.
- Good idea to bring customers away from your home page where the "affiliates & ads" link sits.

and next,


- Designs for bracelets, bagcharms & hp charms can be further improved. $4 for a wooden pegs hp charms seems a bit high though.
- If pics can be bigger & clearer that will be better.

And like you mentioned in another post, market is quite saturated and there are so many online sellers, it's going to be difficult to earn a living out of online business. But hey, as long as there's still a passion in creating beautiful accesssories, keep the flame burning, you never know what will happen tomorrow. To be successful, you not only need capital & creativity but also lots of passion, determination and perseverance.

Hi,

Thought I'd add to the great comments FF Fashion mentioned in this thread.

Since there's lots of areas to talk about for both Tarandip and Baisimu, I've chosen the common aspect of Color that applies to both.


Colors that sell

One important aspect of online marketing and selling that is often neglected - is the use of color. Meanings are attached to colors in the same way meanings are attached to words. In fact, colors have a bigger effect than words because it is processed by your brain immediately.

To find out if your current color scheme matches the effect you want your website to have on visitors, it's good to ask yourself a few questions.


Who is your customer?

Quote:
Try to target everyone and you will target no one.
It's such a simple question, but really, few people get this right. It's usually "Oh, anyone who visits my website, I guess...".

Be specific.

Examples:
  1. Young ladies who are still studying - from Upper secondary to Tertiary level.
  2. Working adults who like reading fashion magazines.
  3. People who love to bargain for the best deals.


What do they like?

Group 1 might like watching anime, korean dramas, or whatever. So the choice of colors for them might be either bright and energetic, or calm and soothing.

Group 2 might love things to be nice and sleek - black/white/gray color schemes might appeal to them. However, they might not want to buy cheap products. So selling stuff at $5 on a sleek looking website is inconsistent.



What mood do you want to convey to them?
Write down about 10 words that describe how you want people to feel when they visit your site. (e.g. "excited", "comfortable")

Choose 2-3 that are the most important to them. Don't choose what you like, because you're not the one buying.

Check out ALL the colors that you're currently using on your website using this website: The Meaning of Colors

Mmm... Hopefully your existing scheme matches your top 3 moods. If not, it's time to re-color


Read about it
The Meaning of Colors
4 Simple Steps to Coloring your WWWorld!
Colors for Marketing


Specifics:

Tarandip & Baisimu
Both are greats look for a blog or entertainment website, but the effect might might work to your disadvantage.

Check out your website versus, let's say... Amazon.com. It's almost like choosing between 2 paths in a forest. A dark, scary path or a brightly lit path with birds chirping.

No reward for guessing which is more conducive for people to part with their money.
