Jewelry Category and Sub Categories

I was curious about the new Jewelry category format.

There is a section labeled eco friendly, but that is not available from the pull down sub category options when posting a new listing. So how do items get placed in there?

My bracelets are made from recycled t shirts so I'm wondering what I need to do to weasel my way in there.

Any help is appreciated. Thank you :)

The categories are only being tested so nothing else is changing until Etsy decides which categories are going to work and which will not.
The pull down menu creates tags, and those tags are treated like the tags you fill in yourself.

So, even though you can't choose it from the pull down, if you want to show up in the eco-friendly subcategory, just add eco-friendly to your title and tags. I'm not 100% certain, but that *should* do the trick.

With the caveat that - like Harriet said - its a test and the sidebar links to that set of subcategories could disappear tomorrow. Then reappear. Then disappear again. Then reappear, only in a much bigger font. You never know.
