Although Etsy does change the picture name as Sonia from decirculo mentioned your pictures do show up in Google images using the listing title.

On the thumbnail image, Etsy uses the item title as the alt tag (it's what you see when you hover). So there is a chance for them to be picked up by Google image. This is another reason to have clearly descriptive titles instead of cute or artistic names.
To clarify, the name of an image and its alt tag aren't necessarily the same. What's important is the alt tag. If you want SEO-friendly images, have SEO-friendly item titles.
I just tried it i goggled dolls house union jack placemats and looked at images and my item was there.
lots of my things show up there. If I google "seashell mirror" my mirrors come up, but I always have "seashell mirror" in my title so maybe that's why.
