As the copywriter for the jewelry category I am responsible for creating an HTML page for each product in our inventory. Before any item gets launched on one of our three auction websites I view the piece, write one-to-three sentences describing it, edit the HTML, and send it to the schedulers to be launched. My main focus is the creative copy which allows me to write about each piece of jewelry in such a way that will entice the shopper to bid on the item.
