All About Mizmlu’s Jewelry Shops

My jewelry shopsNecklace-Bag5 (16)

I’m continually aware of how much competition there is out there for jewelry. I am banging my head against a wall of talented artisans doing the same thing as I do. I would like to think that I have a little bit of an edge. I have 2 shops. Etsy and Jewelry ala Mode.

My jewelry is hand made with a large variety of colors and styles and prices. I create all the jewelry, all are original, one of a kind designs and especially in my jewelry ala mode shop the prices are affordable. I do not charge for US shipping in my Etsy shop. Each necklace and bracelet is packaged in an organza pouch. Shipping is free in Jewelry ala Mode for all sales in the US over $10. Sales of less than $10 are charged at USPS rates. International sales are at USPS rates. I do not charge for handling, ever.
There are lots of choices in my 2 shops. Etsy has the latest pieces I have just created and has about 40 items, not all jewelry. My other shop, jewelryalamode, is a much larger shop, with over 100 items, in every color and style under the sun. If you are looking for a special color, just find one of that color, and click on the color in the tags list. You will see all the pieces of that color pop up for your choice.
Jewelry ala mode pieces are bargain priced, marked down from the Etsy price. They range from a low of $5 to a high of about $20. Most are about $10-15. One special vintage piece is genuine topaz gems set in gold and includes earrings. My late husband purchased this for me more than 40 years ago, but I no longer wear it. I feel someone else should enjoy the beauty. It comes in the original box and will cost more than the others. But it’s special.
I would love to know how you feel about the jewelry I love to create. Can I help you in any way? A gift perhaps? A special color to go with that new outfit? Just something to perk you up? A unique color or style not found anywhere else? You can reach me at mizmlu@gmail.com. Talk to me.
I list new Etsy items about twice a month at http://mizmlu.etsy.com and at jewelryalamode.com as they become available. I just listed 9 new items yesterday on jewelry ala mode and I will be listing new items on Etsy soon. Maybe today. Come visit one or both shops. Perhaps you’ll find just what you’ve been looking for.

Aquarius-January 20-February 18

Aquarius is an air sign, the most social of the signs. They have a humanitarian outlook and a magical, electric aura. They are clever, witty, inventive, and original. They are constantly after what is new. They are also stubborn and sometime rebellious.
When considering the colors most appropriate to this sign think of neon rainbow colors, electric and ultramarine blue, green, turquoise and violet.
You will find many varities of these colors in jewelry at my Etsy shop, http://mizmlu.etsy.com or my new shop, http://jewelryalamode.com which has over 100 necklaces in every color under the sun.

Capricorn

Capricorn – December 22-January 19

Capricorn is an Earth sign, so expect them to be down to earth. Capricorn will be your strong friend, they will always be there to help and expect nothing in return. They are excellent organizers and are very creative. They evaluate everything and don’t take daring chances without weighing all the advantages and disadvantages. Their most important need is security. Think of Capricorn colors as neutral and earthy tones such as black, grey, violet, and dark brown.
My etsy shop at mizmlu.etsy.com has many choices in these colors. And my new shop, jewelryalamode.com, has a feature which allows you to sort and display items in the colors you are seeking just by clicking on a tag.

A New Venture for me

My daughter and I have a new site for your attention. It is “Jewelry A’La Mode” and contains a multitude of necklaces for your pleasure. Many different styles, colors, lengths, and bead types are available. Each is a handmade, one-of-kind, original creation. Click onto Jewelryalamode.com and browse to your heart’s content. You will find a picture of each necklace and its price. All prices have been reduced from the original. Some pieces will show the discounted cost. Other information such as length and clasp type is available at the click of your finger on “attributes”. If you need further details I will be happy to converse with you via email at mizmlu@gmail.com. However, prices listed are firm.
Shipping in an organza pouch is free in the US for purchases of more than $10. All other sales will ship at USPS charge, rounded up to the next even $ amount, unless you choose a different shipper. No charge is ever made for handling. Faster shipment is available with USPS additional charges. Contact me for International shipping as countries vary in cost. I will quote you the USPS charge. For all International shipping, your charge will be the USPS charge or whatever shipping choice you make such as Fed Ex or other.
Payment is by Pay Pal. Easy purchase is through the required information when you click on the item.
Another cute little feature of this site is color choices. If you are interested in a red necklace, for example, click on “red” in the tag list and all the red necklaces available will appear. What could be better? However, you might miss a great necklace in a different color that way.  Please come and take a look.
When I finish listing all the necklaces I have available for your choice there will be over 100. So you will have much to choose from. My pleasure was in the making. I hope you find pleasure in the wearing.

Sagittarius

SAGITTARIUS: Nov 22- Dec 21

The centaur is the symbol for this sign. In mythology, the centaur was half man and half horse, given to pursuing pleasure. Those born under this sign will love traveling, discovering new things, meeting new people, and learning new things. Because they are eager to experience new things, they are fun to be around. They are usually highly intelligent and enjoy the company of other intelligent people. Sagittarians are about the bigger picture and details often bog them down and bore them.

Their Fire sign is gentle, mystical and creative. Imagine stained glass with its brilliant, colorful light shining through the glass. Your jewelry will reflect this image with colors of lilac, mauve, purple, amethyst, violet, vermillion and midnight blue.
View the pieces from the astrological section in my Etsy shop to see what is right for you. Several choices are available, all with free shipping in the US. http://mizmlu.etsy.com

Next month is Capricorn beginning Dec. 22.

Back to making jewelry

I just returned to my jewelry making activities after spending all my time preparing for the craft show. Unfortunately that was a huge disappointment. But it hasn’t deterred me from creating new jewelry items. Fire Mountain, where I get a lot of my materials, had a sale that I couldn’t resist. When the big package arrived I sorted the little packages, putting colors together, and my creative juices flowed. I’m back, doing what makes me happy.
While I wait for my daughter to make time to come and take pictures, I have several other pieces that I will be putting up on Etsy today. They are not Christmas related items, so if you come by my shop please scroll down to the new items, right after the Christmas pieces.
It’s 10am in So. California right now and it will take me a couple of hours to sort them out, find the pictures and post them in Etsy, on Pinterest and tweet them. So please wait until afternoon to take a look at my latest creations. Thanks. Hope you find something you like.

Halloween jewelry

I wore this necklace along with my beaded pumpkin earrings and a green blouse to a meeting of my friends last weekend.  We share books we’ve read and like.  I got a lot of compliments on both the earrings and my necklace.  I made the pumpkin earrings many years ago, only wear them during the Halloween period and they are an attention getter.  This peach colored necklace was perfect with them and the green blouse. http:mizmlu.etsy.com
