Some people make money selling handmade jewelry on Etsy, but not all sellers are successful. There are many factors that can lead to success or failure.
As of 2015, a search on Etsy for "handmade jewelry" yields more than 6 million results. Standing out in such a large market is challenging for anyone hoping to earn extra money selling handmade crafts.
The most common advice for new Etsy sellers is to be different. Products that are unique and special have a greater chance of being noticed and purchased. Item listings should include clear, well-lit photographs and appealing descriptions. It is also beneficial to browse the Etsy website to research competing products and pricing.
