How would you search for this necklace?

I read an article about effective tagging recently. It made me stop and think about how I am tagging my items in my Etsy shop and am I doing so in the most effective manner. I THINK I am tagging so that potential customers can find my items, but am I really? If you were searching for this necklace, what would you put in the search box? Leave me a comment and give me a few words or phrases you would use. I'll see if I am "thinking like a customer" or not! Thanks everyone!

Vintage cowgirl, cowgirl and horse, cowgirl photo. That is what I would type in to search for what I look for. Great necklace, by the way, but you knew I would love it !

What a great idea! If I were looking for a necklace like that the first thing that comes to mind is "cowgirl", then "beaded", then "turquoise" and maybe "southwest" or "southwestern". Hope this helps!

Gorgeous necklace! I would probably search for vintage cowgirl or vintage horse. Very nice:)

The craggy cliffs and sea are wonderful, but I would love to see the desert!
Speaking of tagging, I have tagged you in a different way! Don't feel pressured, but if you want to play, check out my blog for the lowdown!

Lots of great suggestions already, but here's my 2 cents of what came to mind first: vintage, cowgirl, western, southwest, turquoise, beaded.

Great piece B!
