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.

Protect your Jewelry with a pouch

I just received a package of beautiful organza jewelry pouches from China.  From this day on every necklace and bracelet I sell on my Etsy site will be placed in one of these pouches at no extra charge.  They come in 6 different colors and will be suitable for gift giving or just as a little protection in your jewelry box.  These pouches are transparent so the jewelry can be identified without opening the pouch.

I am very pleased to be able to add this feature to my Etsy shop and hope that my customers enjoy the extra care and thought I give to them.  Come see my shop at www.etsy.com/shop/mizmlu.

I just listed the jewelry associated with the Astrological sign of Taurus.  You’ll find the jewelry for that sign in the Sections portion of my shop. Maybe you’ll see the perfect piece for Spring.

 

Taurus April 21-May 21

Taurus is the sign of the bull, dependable, persistant, loyal, patient and generous.  They follow the leader and add to the endeavor.  Taurus is an excellent friend and has a knack for finance.  Colors associated with Taurus are like a garden in early summer-soft greens, rose-pinks, pale turquoise and blue.  You’ll find your Taurus jewelry in my Etsy shop under “sections” as well as in the regular listings.  www.etsy.com/shop/mizmlu.

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.

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.

Visit my other online site

I have an online site, directed to California readers, to sell jewelry and other items that I use for extra viewing and for items that are not handmade by me There are some different and unusual items there that might interest you. Prices on all items include California sales tax and shipping. Although the listing states no International shipping I will ship anywhere from this site. However you must contact me for cost as countries have different charges depending on the weight of the item. If you live in the US in a state other than California you may deduct the tax. It’s listed in the description. International buyers also may deduct the tax. Payment is by PayPal. No checks or money orders.

Take a look. You might find something different, unusual and interesting. The jewelry that I make is one-of-a-kind, not found anywhere else. It’s colorful and attractive. If you don’t find what you are looking for on that site try mizmlu’s store at http://www.etsy.com/shop/mizmlu. There’s lots of different stuff there. I add new items frequently. Hope to see you soon.

Sell those vintage items

Do you have any of those old vintage items hanging around your house just taking up valuable space? Have you considered selling them? Did you try Ebay unsuccessfully? I did. Then I found Etsy. Etsy is a world wide marketplace for new handmade pieces and Vintage jewelry, household items, and many other treasures. You can get cash for these items through Etsy. It’s easy to open a shop, post pictures of your pieces, set a price and Voila! You’re an Etsy shop owner. And you’ve cleared out your home so that you can buy more.

There is a new 51 page book created by 2 Etsy shop owners telling you exactly how to do just that. It’s called, “Be an Etsy Store Owner” and it’s available now on Amazon at http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00CRB6NUQ for only $9.99.

This amazing document takes you through each step of creating your very own shop with detailed instructions and explanations. No other publication is as complete as this one.
It costs nothing to open a new shop and only pennies to list an item for sale. Your item is on sale for 4 months and if it doesn’t sell you can renew it for another $.20 and 4 more months.

Try it. You might be surprised at the results.
