Ok, thanks to everybody for your great help!
I've thought about this a lot and have decided that a Facbook business page with a store tab will be the best way to start.
This is for three main reasons:
1) Low-budget: no advertising cost, no cost of web-hosting or store. Note: the store app on Facebook is free and they don't even charge a commission on sales (the Etsy app charges 3.5% and $0.20 per listing).
2) It's viral. Friend and family of customers. Repeat sales and gifts. It is easy to "like" and share.
3) I can start my own website with more features and customization later on and link to it from the page.
Check it out! Here's the link: Irresistible Handmade Jewelry
Be sure to "Like" my page if you like what you see (and don't be afraid to share it with your friends).
I'm open to comments or suggestions. Please post below.
Thanks and have a great day!
