In previous newsletters I have raved about how I love my shopping site created by Zibbet. I have waited a long time for the upgrades, and Zibbet has done their best to make tech trendy updates to keep with the times; while keeping checkout seamless. Notes on why I redirected below.
1. Credit Card payments.
This is the biggest feature I have been waiting for, which launched just a few weeks ago. You can now make payments with either card or PayPal. Yay!
2. Guest Checkout
Just as the previous site, no account is needed to checkout.
3. Customizable website.
Zibbet is a handmade marketplace, they have given us the paid option of having what they call a "standalone website". We can customize this site to add a bit of branding; which includes using our own website url (i.e hannahsgemstonejewelry.com) . I have chosen to use it as a redirect and keep the default website url with Zibbet. See why next.
I recently learned that it is now mandatory for e-commerce websites (online shopping carts) to use https:// in their url which displays a lock in the address bar of search engine browsers. This is done to help customers feel confident that their information is secure; your shipping info is the only information shared with us, btw.
5. Google Ranking.
Another reason for the focus on https://hannahsgems.zibbet.com , is that I think it would do better with search engine traffic.
6. Website templates.
We have a few template options to choose from, but they are all beautiful. I have two favorites. I like the elegant look of the one I recently switched to, it's my second choice.
7. Majority of our initial and repeat customers came with us through Zibbet. Thank you. Screen shots of the new checkout below.

Have everything you need? Great! Time to purchase.
You'll first be asked for your name and email. You are not creating an account. This is so Zibbet can send you info about your purchase. In the next step you'll be asked for your shipping info.
Lastly, choose how you would like to pay.
Thank you for joining me today.

It's Thursday. On Thursdays I share short stories about my old favorites - pieces of jewelry I've made when just starting out. This week I'm sharing 3 pieces - all made with faceted red agate - faceted red agate. I loved the sophisticated feminine appeal of these pieces. They are all sterling silver, except for the pin. I do not focus much on these styles anymore - they can get pricey. Check them out below. What do you think?

.On Thursdays I share my old favorites - pieces of jewelry I've made when just starting out. What do you think? My all time favorite - Botswana agate sterling silver wrapped bracelet. When I first saw Botswana agate and touched it - I was on cloud nine - literally (yes, like the saying). On my first encounter I felt like I was in another zone, because of this deep connection Botswana agate naturally became my number one favorite agate gemstone, so I used it in many finished pieces. Do you have a favorite gemstone? Leave your answer in the comment section below.
Photographing natural gemstones is very challenging to say the least; they are like a mirrior and reflect light and everything else around, and the colors can become distorted. The Botswana agate was the hardest to photograph. I've learned that a natural backgound is perfect for gemstone jewelry. I love the way the product photos turned out.
Botswana agate is a stone of tranquility - serenity - surreal calmness. Enhance your casuals - https://hannahsgems.zibbet.com .

The year 2015 is coming to a close. I wanted to stop by and say THANK YOU!

This year has been a learning curve for Hannah’s Gemstone Jewelry, testing new marketing ideas and focusing on branding. I’ll admit that I spent too much time listening to marketing experts and trying to carry out their best tips and tricks. I spent way too much time on working on website templates and design and deciding on the best shopping cart platform.
Looking back, YOU, Customers and Followers, showed me that keeping it simple is the best way to go. As the saying goes, “if it aint broke, don’t’ fix it.”
Hannah’s Gemstone Jewelry, will continue to make jewelry gifts with care and quality while keeping it simple.
Here is hoping for more time with family and friends and easier and wiser decisions in 2016.

October: Breast Cancer Awareness and Domestic Violence Awareness
Breast Cancer Awareness Campaigns use the color pink and a pink ribbon as the symbol.
Domestic Violence Awareness Campaigns use the color purple and a purple ribbon as a symbol.
It's not easy being a woman, and I think only God alone truly knows what we endure.
Other remembrances in October; child loss; mental health and depression awareness.

I think each of us may have our own natural stone that really works in harmony with us.

I went to find a clasp to finish that bracelet I was reworking, but I had to shuffle through other supplies to find a suitable clasp, I wasn't sure what kind of clasp I was looking for either. Anyway, one thing led to another and I this happened...
