Checking Jewelry the trend shows:

People get so frustrated becasue they don't get enough traffic and I ask, how may of the same people really work at "getting traffic". Are you using the tremendous tools that are available at no charge. SEO's charge big bucks to "guarantee" top listings and what tools do you think they may be using?

Well, so I tried the google trends and I lerned that beadweaving is not a searched keyword even though it is a subset of art jewelry.

I also saw this amazing exponential upswing for "etsy." And I was led to a very interesting article about making a living on etsy vs the latest philosophical upheavals there.
