A New Way to Trick You

Be careful, be aware.  There’s a new device out there to trap you into purchasing something you don’t want and didn’t authorize.  The telemarketers are using a  new system to get you.  It’s the simple word, “yes”.  If, during the call, you say “yes” at any time, answering yes, even acknowledging your name, the word is captured and can be used to make a purchase of an item you probably don’t want.

It works so simply, it’s amazing and so easy to trap you into buying something you probably wouldn’t want.  It starts as soon as you pick up the phone to answer the call.  The caller says, “Is this Mrs., or Mr. Jones?”, using your name.  If the caller has your name you naturally say, “Yes.”  That’s the normal response.  And they’ve got you!  With your recorded “Yes” they can copy that word and apply it to the product they are promoting.  You have now accepted the purchase of the item they are selling and will be charged.  You don’t even know it’s happened.

So, be aware.  When the phone rings, let it ring a couple of times, prepare yourself for the possibility that it may not be one of your family or friends. It may be a telemarketer.  Be prepared to pause if they ask “Is this Mrs. or Mr. Jones,” (using your name), do not reply immediately.  If it isn’t someone you know, just hang up. Do not answerJust hang up.  This is a call you don’t want and should not be concerned about being abrupt or discourteous.  You are being careful and smart.

Pass this on to your family and friends.  I heard it on Ch, 7 last night.

Dare to be Different

Are you looking for a necklace that is like no other?  How about one that is in a color or design that you have never seen on any other lady? Do you want your friends to ask you where you got it?  Well, look right here for a selection of unusual designed and colorful accessories.

Each of the individual necklaces shown here is an original design which takes advantage of the beads themselves.  I like to choose the beads I use for their color and/or the shape or distinction.

While making my creations I picture in my mind who might wear it, at work, or play or on an evening out.

New Etsy Items For Your Pleasure

I just added four new items to my Etsy Shop that can go from the office to after-hours with ease and style. They are all different, featuring my original designs in various colors.  The red one in particular has five different beads in the front of the necklace that I found interesting.  This unusual necklace features a variety of beads from my large collection.

The others are fashionable as well.  The dark blue, smooth, beaded necklace is a classic piece for your day or evening wear,  The two   pastel blue necklaces feature the beads themselves to make them distinct and special.  One is made of sculptured beads and the other is paired with small oval beads and octagonal shiny crystal beads.

I think you will find them interesting and I hope you like them. I enjoy the process of creating new, different and original  items and hope you will share the pleasure of wearing something that no other woman can wear.

New Jewelry

I just finished listing ten new necklaces on my Google site for your consideration.  They range in price from $13.97-$19.97 and consist of red, blue, white, black and gold and silver tones.  My jewelry is designed mostly for the lady who goes to work every day and wants to be a little different in her choice of accessories. I don’t neglect the lady who spends her time at home, though.  I stay at home, but want to look pretty just for myself.  I, too, want to be different in my wardrobe.  No pajamas in the daytime.

The necklaces I listed are different.  You won’t find them anywhere else.  I like to work with colors that are bright and unusual as well as bead forms that are not just round.  All my jewelry, both new and vintage, follows that pattern.

So, whether you stay at home, or go to work, you will need an accessory that stands out from the usual. Mine are that.

You’ll find the ones I just listed at www:amazon.com/handmade/mizmlu

I WANT YOUR OLD OR BROKEN JEWELRY

Recently my friend Betty gave me a shoe box filled with little bottles of beads and assorted broken jewelry items she no longer wanted.  I was delighted to get them.   I have been given old jewelry from other ladies in the past, but usually just one or two pieces.  This was a treasure box.

I took out all the items I couldn’t use to give away and sorted the beads that were left.  Several were pearls of all sizes, but there were a few beads that were in colors or shapes I had never seen. I was inspired by the variety.

By adding some beads from my stock I was able to create 8 new necklaces!  I will be putting those up for sale as soon as my daughter can take pictures.

While doing this I had a thought.  Surely there are a number of ladies out there with broken jewelry or old items they no longer want.  Even I have a few like that.  Why not give those gorgeous old pieces a new home?  Therefore, I am offering to take them off your hands.  You can send them to me.  I will pay the postage for any items in the US.  I am not able to pay the postage for International shipping.  But if you can afford it I would still like to have them.

Contact me at mizmlu@gmail.com and let me know what you have, where you live and how much the postage will be.  We can make a deal and you will get rid of some things you have been hanging onto for no reason, just hoping they will get fixed somehow.  I will treasure them and give them new life.  Thanks.
