Dandelion Hollow Bangle
by The Sage's Cupboard
This week, our Tag Workshop will focus on a beadwork bangle from The Sage’s Cupboard. The description reads:
Show off your love for nature’s prettiest weed with a colorful bangle bracelet. This piece is made with Japanese and Czech glass seed beads, using the right angle weave technique. Colors included frosted green, emerald and yellow.
I created the bangle from a hollow, tubular band of woven beads. Emerald colored hex-cut seed beads add sparkle to the edges, and the opaque yellow seed beads mimic the sunny face of a dandelion in full bloom.

Each list has great examples of keywords that you can pull right from your title and description. This is often the best place to look for tags. Although trying to think of good keywords can feel like hunting for a magic word to bring in views and sales, the simplest solution is often the best one.
The next time you list a new item on Etsy, write down your tags on paper before you even turn on the computer. Try to imagine describing your creation to a customer, using only single words. You might be surprised by how many tags you can think of!
