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.

Why I like my etsy store

My Etsy store is my source for some extra income as well as the satisfaction I get from the responses  from the people who purchase my items.  My handcrafted jewelry is diverse as well as colorful and unique.  When I make a piece of jewelry I imagine who will wear it and where, at her job, a party, or just for fun.  My jewelry covers all sorts of possibilities.  Some are dramatic, some simple, most are brilliantly colorful, some for evening wear, some for casual wear, but all are original designs.  I tend to like the dramatic items best.

Most of my time is spent on the design, putting the beads together to best show off their beauty. I am fortunate to have a variety of sources for unusual beads and materials to make them into a piece of jewelry.  I get most of  my  ideas from the beads themselves.   I have also  helped friends to get started making their own jewelry. This occupation is my pleasure.

Although sales have been slow these past few months it doesn’t stop me from looking for new ideas, new beads, and new ways to promote my Etsy shop.  I list almost all my creations on Pinterest and some of my  creations are also available in Classifiedads.com http://bit.ly/Oh2WzL   and I have an Ebay site for a few.

In a few weeks I will be promoting a new category on Etsy, Baby Booties.  I have crocheted 5 sets and am just waiting for them to be photographed.   I have no camera so I have to wait for my daughter to take the pictures for me.   I hope they will be well received.  I will announce their promotion here.

Please take a look at my Etsy shop.   The items for sale are not just jewelry.  I have vintage items that belonged to older members of my family and decided to pass them on to someone who will appreciate them as much as I did.   In addition I have included some other types of creations, such as a beaded purse, a knitted baby afghan, a hand painted blouse, a vintage hat, a macrame belt and much more.

Have fun with my shop!

New Etsy News

I have talked about my Etsy shop in the past, but it’s time to remind you that it’s up and running and waiting for you.  I have been making new jewelry pieces almost daily and posting them for your viewing pleasure.  You will find that there is a large variety of both vintage and new necklaces, earrings, bracelets, and many other pieces.  I use many different colors and materials so that my jewelry comes in all colors and shapes.  The pieces I create are original designs and one-of-a-kind.  You won’t find them anywhere else.  The vintage items are from my collection of long ago.  I clean them and make sure they are in good shape before listing.

Watch the Black Elegance Video to see some of the pieces I create.

I try to price my items for the average buyer who wants something different at a reasonable price.   Some pieces are very inexpensive and others a little more.  It depends on the cost of the materials and the amount of work involved in the making.  I am very diligent in shipping as quickly as possible, sometimes the same day as ordered, and as inexpensively as possible.  I make sure the item is packaged securely so that it arrives in good condition.  I am proud of the 100% approval rating I have received from my customers.

 

My goal is to provide pleasure in the form of a colorful and distinctive accent to your appearance.

 

I urge you to go to my etsy site at www.etsy.com/shop/mizmlu or http://etsy.me/GV8zSc.  I would appreciate any comments you might have.  Thanks for your consideration.
