Well what's the style of the things you will be selling? Are they traditional? Vintage style? Modern and fashionable? You need to tell us a bit more...if they're handcrafted that's another thing altogether.

I buy things on FB often and when I want a specific thing I will often type "Handmade Bags in Warrington" into the search box for names that include your area might be good.

Are you still looking for name ideas? If so, as ICameOnTheJitney said we need a bit more info about your jewellery style etc. What makes it uniquely yours?

Regarding the FB page itself, once you set your page up you can press a button on it to use Facebook AS the page instead of as your personal profile. When you are doing that, any comments you leave on other pages (e.g. buy & sell pages) will show as being left by your page (rather than by your personal profile).

Does that make sense, and does it answer your question?

Thanks yes still trying to think of name ideas its just silver costume jewellery that i buy wholesale and different brands of make up nothing expersive

What's your angle though? Is it that it's cheap and cheerful or gorgeous and feminine? Is it hip or classic stuff? There's no such thing as "just silver costume jewelry" to be honest...

Have a look at this PDF, OP. It's about defining your brand and ends with an exercise on choosing your name.

If you can share with us your thoughts about your brand (and particularly your thoughts from the final exercise), we might get a better feel for what makes your business special and will therefore be able to suggest appropriate names. Or you might even have some more ideas of your own after reading through the PDF.

A quick extract about brand identity:

"• The three things you want people to know about your business:
- What you offer
- Who you serve
- How you’re best at what you do

• Your point of difference (how you serve your target market differently and better than
all other options)
• Your business promise that will be upheld through all brand experiences
• Your brand character or personality that will be communicated through the mood and tone projected in all brand expressions."

Hi, great advice from MonkeyNuts and I would keep your keywords in mind. What will your ideal clients be searching for on social media? If you're targetting young 18-25 girls then they will use different search terms than 40 year old professional women.

If you can afford it you can use FB Ads (set a low budget per day, even $1 per day will work) to drive targetted traffic to your page.

And please make sure you're building a mailing list so you can communicate directly with your customers/potential customers. That will make a massive impact on your income in the long run. Much more than what you name your Facebook page! Good luck, it sounds exciting!
