Would any fellow craft sellers like to critique my shop page?

I have an Etsy shop. I have 100% satisfaction on reviews but very low sales. I use Twitter and FB groups and those weekly online hours where everyone shares each others' stuff - last night for example an hour on Twitter got me 135 visits.
So if you have experience of selling or are an interested shopper with time on your hands, I'd be chuffed if I could PM you the link. I'll then put on my hard hat for your comments. Is it the products? Is it my page layout? Is it market saturation?
Thanks for any help with this.

To be honest I found it really hard to sell on Etsy
Thr are so many people selling on ther and Etsy keep changing things that make I harder for uk sellers. I now only sell on eBay and am doing well. eBay gets a lot more traffic. You might like to try a few one eBay and see how you get on.

Hadn't thought about Ebay, only use that for occasional personal selling. Would I need some sort of business account? Frisbee I will PM you, thanks.

There's been a run on Christmas items overnight!
So far the comments I have had suggest I need better, more uniform photos (same clear background etc) and an idea of sizes (though I do already state wrist size for bracelets).
It's very good of those who have spent time commenting, am very grateful for these alternative perspectives cake

Thank you all for feedback received today.
So far I have completely rejigged my categories and am going to look at photos and size information. I've also emphasised my Swarovski pearl section and tidied other items into what my be better categories.

I'm not a jewellery type seller so this might not be helpful to your biz - I sell stationery gubbins. But I find instagram v good for driving sales to Etsy and ebay. I'm also active in relevant hobby facebook groups and use these along with to release etsy promo codes etc and increase followers.

Am getting loads of helpful PMs, thank you to everyone who's been for a look at my page. Can't keep up with the changes required! Hopefully it will come out looking a lot more attractive.
