Making jewelry

I got laid off 2 weeks ago and decided to take my hobby to the next level.  I love making jewelry it is a passion.  I think that making very affordable jewelry that can be worn everyday is perfect for everyone.  I have run into a few problems so far though.  I listed my first 5 listings on eBay recently and I have come to find that if you do not have any ratings people are far less willing to take a chance but you can't get ratings unless someone buys something.  It is a huge circle of nothing happening.  Very frustrating!
I have made a fan page on facebook to try and help get the name out there and that is slow going but at least it is out there and you can put up pictures of some of the products.  It is very exciting and exhausting!
I will try to keep you updated on how things are going and hopefully give some advice and tips on how to make jewelry and go about selling it.
