Plaincraft Lets You Pick the Best Jewelry Design

[UPDATE : Plaincraft is no longer available.] 
Have you ever wondered, deep down, if your jewelry designs were really, really good? Your friends and family may gush over your creations but perhaps the one way to know for sure if your jewelry has broadbased appeal is if you got a whole bunch of total strangers to judge your jewelry purely on its merits. A fabulous design doesn't necessarily mean it's going to be wildly popular.

Plaincraft is a new website where you can get crowdsourced ratings on handmade creations. Just upload your design (with your online shop link) and viewers can rate it on a scale of 1-20. Everyday, the top 10 are displayed on their front page. Below are my favourites from yesterday's top 10.

As they said on Plaincraft's Twitter - "No frills, no fees, it's free!" It's an easy way to get exposure for your work. Yep, free advertising. You got to like that.

  1. Artisans is right - I am and will always be just a beader. That stuff is HARD! And pretty. :)

  2. Thanks again for featuring my jewelry. I really enjoy this blog because you do such a great job showcasing a wide variety of jewelry and artisans.

    I think Plain Craft is a great idea. I'm still new to the online jewelry biz and I need all the exposure I can get. :)

  3. I left a comment earlier, but evidently it didn't go through.

    I wanted to thank you for featuring my earrings in your PlainCraft post. It is a great way to advertise and get seen, as is your journal.

    Keep up the great work and thanks again for the feature and for turning me on to your great blog.


  4. Wow! They all really deserved to be in the top 10!

  5. Wow these pieces are stunning! It would be difficult to choose which one I liked most. Sounds like a fabulous site. Will have to look into it! Thanks!


You're AWESOME! Thanks for the comment and feedback. You do make a difference on my blog!
