Dilema... Dilema... ?? ??? ????

My dear teammates,

For about 6 mo. I have a small quantity of my jewels at a newly opened nail & electrolysis place.The place is open on demand, maybe 2 days a week and the owner is still working for someone else.  Last week I went there to talk to the owner about the feedback she gets from her clients on my jewels. Here is what she said, quote: "People want bling. I went to New York and to Chinatown. I brought back bling bangle bracelets. Three days later they were all gone. I sold them for $25. Too bad I did not bring more."

I explained to her that I do not make that style of jewelry, which she knew what I made as I showed my work to her when we first met.
Sterling Silver Bracelet
Now, I need your opinion.

1. Should I just get out of there since this is not my target market?
2. Should I start making bling?

I like bling sometimes! I just do not make bling.
I believe I know what I want to do but it would be great to hear your thoughts.

Thanks a lot for your input.

Bling Bracelet

It is hard to buy an item when you can not try it on or touch it. That is why I am always worried if my buyer will like the item purchased. Today, I want to thank you all my buyers for trusting to purchase from me and want to share some of their feed-backs:
  • thanks so much, love my purchase!!
  • Great cuff and lots of textures that I like very much! Wonderfully comfortable and easy to put on. I like the folded metal! Very nice artist and very talented!
  • Great job on the bracelet. Just what I wanted! Thanks!
I do not have that many of sold items so I cherish every positive feedback.
