Libra jewelry

LIBRA –the air sign -September 24-October 23
Libras are generous and friendly and tend to compromise for the sake of peace.
Libra’s strength is in their grace, idealism, diplomacy, hospitality and balance. Their weakness appears as vanity, indecision and unreliability. They are happiest when there is balance in their lives. They like to be around other people and appreciate posh surroundings.
Libras love excitement, new situations, adventure and the unusual. They cannot abide unfair situations.
Their sign is the balance scale. The colors associated with Libras are Royal blue, rose-pink, amethyst, violet and pastels. You’ll find jewelry in those colors in my Etsy shop under “sections”, Libra. Go to etsy.com/shop/mizmlu

Note: I apologize for not listing notes relating to Virgo. My computer, which was old, died. I was without a computer for a month during which time I was unable to post my monthly Astrological info. I’m sorry.

Leo the Lion is confident, ambitious, generous, loyal and encouraging. They are also domineering, stubborn and vain. People are attracted to Leo’s zest for life and their warm spirit. They are social butterflies basking in the spotlight and always ready to help anyone who needs it. Leo is the ultimate friend, never holding a grudge and very forgiving. Leo’s colors are sunny and positive tones of gold, yellow, orange, vermillion, copper and blood red. See Leo’s jewelry in my Etsy shop under “sections” or in the regular listings.

Why do I Make Jewelry?

 Good question.  I make jewelry because it satisfies my creative urges.  I would love to draw pictures, but I have no talent for this.  I have produced all sorts of needlework such as sewing, knitting, needlepoint, crocheting, making afghans for each of my offspring, even grandkids and babies as they come along.  But I don’t do much of any of those things anymore. Cooking doesn’t appeal to me, nor gardening.  I don’t have the energy to tend to a yard and I don’t have nuch of a yard where I now live, but I have pots of greenery on the porch. I have to remember to water them.

 However,  I can excel in making jewelry.  I search the various sources for beads that have character, color, design and a different style.  I am completely addicted to making necklaces, bracelets and earrings. I haven’t counted but I may have almost 200 jewelry pieces.

 I recently disposed of the bed in my guest room and turned it into a studio so I can spread out and not have to clear the table when guests come for dinner.  When I wander into my “studio” I am immediately struck by the need to work on the current project.  I lose myself in it.

 The fact that I have not sold a piece of jewelry in more than 4 months depresses me, but doesn’t deter me from making something new, or finishing a project started a while ago, or, making a trip to the bead shop. 

 I only wish that the love I have for my designs would translate into an equal monetary appreciation for my work.  Casual friends have all commented on the various pieces, but they are not buyers.   

My Etsy store is at www.etsy.com/shop/mizmlu

Some of my jewelry is on Ebay as well as Pinterest, classifiedads and a  few other places.

I’d like to hear your comment.  I’ll reward you with a piece of my jewelry in the color you prefer.

Pisces- Feb 19-Mar 20

Pisces’s sign is a pair of fish.  Pisces people are fluid and easy-going in keeping with their water sign. They are compassionate, charitable and will quickly put the needs of others ahead of their own. Pisces are generally gentle, easy-going folk, who are on the shy and reticent side. They are modest to the point of impracticality, often stepping up only to show their talents in painting or music.  The great strength of the Pisces-born is their compassionate and charitable nature. These folks love to help others and do so in the most imaginative of ways.  Colors associated with Pisces are sea green, violet, blue, purple and aqua.

Just yesterday I added a couple of new items to this section.  Take a look. You might find just the right piece of jewelry you’ve been looking for.  All are original unique designs, handcrafted and colorful.

You’ll find my jewelry with marine tones for Pisces ladies in my Etsy store at www.etsy.com/shop/mizmlu.  Just click on SECTIONS at the left and then PISCES.  Shipping is free in the US.  Contact me for International shipping as costs vary by country.

 

Aquarius Anyone?

Aquarians love to think and put their ideas out to the world. They also love to think they’re right!  They are inventive and original;also sympathetic and compassionate.  They love the latest gadgets, gewgaws, computers and next-generation technologies. The great strengths of the Aquarius-born are their vision, intellect and humanity.

My daughter is an Aquarian and she fits this description to a T.

Aquarius is an air sign.  Think of rainbow colors, ultramarine blue, green, violet, turquoise. You will find these items at my Etsy shop,http://etsy.me/1frBTjL

Hello Capricorns

This month we are featuring the colors of Capricorn, an earth sign, from Dec. 22- Jan 19

Capricorn has many sides, takes an interest in everything, is mysterious and deep, very strong.  As you would expect from Saturn, ruler of Capricorn, its colors represent power that consolidates and sets boundaries.  Just as Capricorn is associated with limitations, so, too, do black, dark grey, and brown denote enclosing.   Choose carefully these hues.  Think of neutral and earthy shades, black, gray, violet, dark brown.

You can find the jewelry associated with the sign of Capricorn in my jewelry shop at www.etsy.com/shop/mizmlu.  That takes you to the site where the listings are.  Or, to see just your color in jewelry, you can click on “Sections” on the left and then choose the Astrological listings.  All my jewelry is handmade, original, and with free shipping in the US.  Come take a look. Capricorn has many sides, takes an interest in everything, is mysterious and deep, very strong.

Is your sign Sagittarious?

Are you a Sagittarian?  I have something just for you.

I read the Astrology section in my newspaper every morning so that I can see what sort of day is in store for me.  My youngest daughter has the same sign so sometimes the advice that is there applies to her more than to me.  We are both Libras, in case you might wonder.

I don’t really believe in the predictions, they hardly ever come about, but it makes for interesting reading.  So, it occurred to me that other people not only read the predictions, but base their lives around them, especially when thinking about the person they would like to marry.  That one must be born under the right sign to be in harmony with their own.   I’m sure these people also make decisions on other actions with their astrological forces in mind.

With that as an incentive I have arranged the jewelry items I have for sale on Etsy to correspond to the Astrological aspects of each sign regarding the colors that should appeal to them.  I began with Sagittarius because it is the sign of this time period.

I found that Sags like stained glass colors such as lilac, mauve, purple, amethyst, violet, indigo, vermillion and midnight blue.  I just happen to have some jewelry in all of those colors.  So I opened a new Section, Astrology, on my Etsy shop site. The jewelry is listed there in “Sections” on the left side of the home page.  They are also listed on the main pages of my Etsy shop. There are currently 15 items pictured in the Section as well as on Pinterest.  I opened a new board there.

Next month I will do a page for Capricorn.  I’ve got their colors, too.

You can reach my jewelry site at etsy.com/shop/mizmlu.  Take a look.  You don’t have to be a Sagittarian.
