Eye Candy for the Ears

It took several hours to arrange, shoot, upload, and post the listings for the 20 colors of these basics! Interchangeables are my bread and butter and require a lot of attention to keep in stock. These little round beads may not look like much one at a time, but when I mix and cut and roll out each one it adds up :)
Levers are done. Next are the separate listings for all the bead charm colors. How do I communicate that the bead charms are all made to mix and match with any interchangeable style? In person it's easy. I can demo all day at a show or at my holiday kiosk. Once I pull out trays of bead charms it all makes sense.
After I get these done, I can do all the hoops.
Maybe I will get to some gold before the snow falls?

Interchangeables Contest

The "interchangeable" earring series needs a new name! For most of my 16 years I have made vaious interchangeable designs, but have never figured out exactly what to call them?

I am looking for ideas to let people know that the earrings can be worn solo as just plain silver or...they can add bead(s) to mix and match. Something short, to the point and calls for action :)
Any ideas?

If your idea is chosen, I will give you your choice of earring style and a set of beads! Be sure to include your email with your comment.
Entries must be submitted by August 31, 2009.

Etsy Showcase

This is my first try at an Etsy Showcase. So far it has had only 21 views. I think I will try a little bit of everything I am learning to see what works. This one is doubtful...

Etsy Education

Today's lessons on Etsy helped to expedite the listings I posted tonight. EtsyHack for Firefox has a great feature to copy listings so each one doesn't have to be created from scratch!
