"The Beginning" Energy Art Necklace by Primal Painter
I just started listing energy art necklaces on Etsy and Artfire in the past few days. I know I need to work on the focus (my eyes are getting blurry, darn it!) but I was wondering if I could get some opinions on the presentation.
For the first one I added in the blue gradation for the background. I think I might need to make it lighter, though.
The second one shows the size and how it looks as a necklace. It's 1 1/2" in diameter but I'm wondering if that's too large for the average person.
The last photo just has a white background without the cord on it, but maybe that gives the impression that it's just the pendant without the cord.
Right now, I have them listed at $25, but I thought that may be too high. Maybe $20 would be better. I don't want to go much lower than that because of the time involved in creating the print, and the work that goes into making the pendant, not to mention the cost of the cord, listing, the print, the selling fee, the paypal fee.... I also offered a free 30 minute distance reiki session to go along with them. Not a bad deal I thought, but don't know how other people would see it.
The questions I have are this:
1) For a first impression, which photo would look best? I have a tendency to go with the first one because I'm into color, but sometimes my taste is way off from other people's taste.
2) Is it too big? I can make them smaller. I blurred out the skin texture (sun damage lol), does that look weird? I also added in the black "shirt". Does it look fake and weird? I see there's a blurry part on the shirt, I could fix that.
3) Does having the pendant without the cord on it give the impression that it's not a necklace? It clearly says it comes with an adjustable length leather or cotton cord in the description, but how many people read the description?
4) Does the description make sense? Is it too long? Too much information? You can see the description HERE.
I've been fragging over these questions for days, and finally it got through my thick skull that I have some bloggy friends whose opinions I greatly value and could give me some insights! Takes me awhile sometimes..........
It's beautiful, warm, and sunny here today, yay! I'm torn between laying out in the sun and soaking up some rays and feel good light, cleaning up the yard, and working in the studio on my heart chakra painting. Gee, could it be possible to do all of the above?
I dunno, the basking in the sun sounds pretty good after the 18" of rain we've gotten over the past week! And I can do that for HOURS (hence the sun damage). I've always been a sun worshipper and never been into the whole sun block thing. I guess there's a price to pay for such reckless self-indulgence! Maybe I'll amaze myself and try to do it ALL! Or not, we'll see.
Have an awesome day!
