First make sure you get really good pictures. This makes all the difference with attracting buyers.

If you are nervous about making a profit, start out with a fixed minimum selling price or set a reserve until you have built up a client base and are confident.

 

Be 100% honest, accurate and clear in your listings and you will get support, over and over.

Hi there DutchessLee

 

Buyers prefer quantity and second they want quality. Most sellers start of selling their own items and then move on to sell the quantity bought items, which they buy wholesale, because you do not get your money back on the handmade items. If i must answer from my own personal experience - It is not worth it and you don't make a profit. At times you might break even. I have found that it is more profitable to sell handmade items direct and then sell the normal bought items on BOB. But to proof that you can check how many sellers, do sell hand made items, and see what are the prices on the items. That will give you a idea what it is sold for, and what you can make such a item for. If you can get hold of a wholesaler and buy your beads wholesale, it might be profitable.

People prefer to buy some creative, innovative and unique jewellery.. First of all you need a creative designs for jewellery. From my personal view quality matters more than quantity. Hope you establish your business of selling Hand Made Jewellery already. good luck for the future from my side.
