I love the description for the Ice earrings. It made me want them bad! I could be casual or dressed up and I may not have thought about that without the description.

I love the 1-3-5 frame too, but the description was short and sweet.

I love the Dazzle necklace the most. But, I liked the description on the Rose Bud earrings: cute color names; and I liked the description, "girly + classic + pretty."

Liked the grapefruit (assuming it's a bracelet?) Suggestion for the owner would be to add details such as length of each jewelry piece. Also, take the word "like" out of the descriptions. Need to describe with words that are concrete. "Like" makes me think that she is not sure about the piece's characteristics. Descriptions should be longer and include phrases like: Perfect for _____ outfit, etc. Just more specific. Does that make sense?

My favorite description was on the Grapefruit necklace, because it helped me imagine what items in my wardrobe I could wear it with. Thanks for the giveaway!

Melony and Todd said...

I liked the grapefruit necklace. It was cute and fun. Good pricing too! My only suggestion is to make the website more like a website than a blog. It will make customers feel like you have a real business. You have a great concept and are very creative.

I loved the grapefruit necklace and the blueberry earrings. I am trying to wear more jewelry--spice my life up a bit--and these are just my style (and price range)!
Like others have said, I would suggest giving lengths of specific jewelry...

I like the Ice earrings. I like in the decription that it talked about dressing up and dressed down. I agree with some of the other comments that the descriptions need to be stronger. I also think that they should have a sentence-like feel with capital letters. (I'm a bit obsessive like that though :)) It feels like they were written hastely instead of thought out and decisive.
I think that the prices are VERY reasonable and definitely something that I would get.

I think my favorite item was the earings called "Fall". I love the combination of fall colors, I use them to decorate throughout my house. Anyway, I loved them even more because of the description about cuddling up with popcorn and a movie since it's one of my very favorite things to do. Thanks!

LOVE all of it! But, especially the "grapefruit" necklace. It made my mouth water they are so sweet and sour. Then I thought, if I had that necklace I would wear it with a sweet and sour attitude and would strut around sassing off "look what I have and you don't!" BEAUTIFUL jewelry!
