200+ Jewellery Category

Hi Everyone,

Very soon the jewellery category on www.shophandmade.co.uk will have over 200 listings, much more than the majority of categories so I am considering spliting the category into 3 sections. I'm not a fan of creating additional clicks to get to the listings but I feel this would help both buyers and sellers. The 3 sections I'm considering are:
  1. Hand Forged / Metalsmithing
  2. Beaded / Gemstone (Semi-precious / precious gems and metals)
  3. Costume (Non precious metals, plated metals, plastic, lucite)
This would also mean the 5 product pictures featured would represent the style of jewellery seller listed in each section. I would love to get your comments on these plans or any suggestions you have.

Thanks
Belinda

'Love Is' Competition live - Enter Now!

I've had quite a few sellers ask me how they can get their product featured or if they can advertise in the picture galleries so with Valentines day approaching I felt I would spread the love a little. I'm offering the chance to WIN your product featured in one of Shop Handmade UK’s image galleries. There are a total of 49 spots to be won between the individual Category pages, the Handmade Directory page and the Home page. The competition starts today, Wed 7th Jan 2009 and closes Fri 23rd Jan 2009.

Winners will be featured on Shop Handmade from Monday 26th Jan for the 3 weeks leading up to Valentines Day.

To enter simply go to our Contact page http://www.shophandmade.co.uk/contact.php fill in your name and email, in the subject box type in 'Love Is Comp' and in the Message box enter your business name, product category and a link to the product you want featured and feel fits the ‘Love Is’ theme. All entries will be shortlisted by category first and then the best selected for the Home Page & the Handmade Directory.

Do not be discouraged if you don’t have anything heart related, your product does not have to be obvious so be creative and inventive but if you do have lots of red hearts then lets see them. As long as your product image reflects love and romance you’re in with a chance.

Any questions please leave a comment.

All the best
Belinda
