Survey Says!

Wednesday, April 23, 2008
I'm making my first foray into polls. There was a discussion on the Etsy forums yesterday about whether or not jewelry for sale should be photographed on a person. I'm interested myself in this, seeing as I sell jewelry and want those interested in buying from me to be able to tell exactly what they're getting. If photographing it on a person helps you out, then I would like to know that. If it turns a large number of people off, then I want to take that into consideration. Obviously I'm not photographing on people right now mainly because I don't have a model and I'm not too keen on being that model, but I'll do it if it helps people get a feel for how the jewelry looks on.

The poll is in the upper right hand corner of this blog, so take a look and let me know how you feel!

This poll runs until Friday, May 2nd so you have plenty of time to decide...

Thanks bunches!



  1. just elaborating on my poll, I wouldn't like seeing earings modelled! That would gross me out.

  2. Sunny,

    Thank you for your response!

    What if the earrings are a made to order item and the earrings in the picture are a representation? I've seen this done before, and it really seems to help people get a feel for how they will look on... I do understand why there is concern for earrings though! Personally it doesn't matter to me, because I clean everything before I wear it myself, but there could still be a certain "eww" factor....

    Thanks again!


I appreciate your words!
