New Shop Section

Watching paint dry
Hey again! So I just finished posting my new jewelry organizers on my website. I really enjoy making these and getting creative with the design! I've added a new section to my shop on Artfire called...Jewelry Organizers...for all of my new creations. I'd love if you'd stop by!

Here are my finished products! I love them and wish I could keep them all! 

I've been doing a lot of crafting lately so I'll be keeping the blog up to date on all of my new projects. :)

Jewelry Organizers

Good morning! I posted a while back on how to make your own jewelry organizers and I've been really excited to be making them to sell at Mozella Designs! Just wanted to stop by and share some of the recent additions and I'll be back later to share some brand new pieces! Enjoy!

DIY Jewelry Organizer

Hey guys! I'm excited to give you a tutorial for a cute DIY jewelry organizer! It's easy and inexpensive. The best part is that you get a great organizer that you could easily pay $80+ in a retail store for a similar item. This is a great way to display and store your jewelry especially if your jewelry tends to get tangled in your current storage. I made my own and it was great. I'll be creating more and likely selling them on my Artfire site for those who aren't into DIY projects. Here was my finished project with my added jewelry.

So let's get started! You will need:
  • Picture frame
  • Wire caging (hex or a smaller grid)
  • Spray paint (optional)
  • S hooks
  • Staple gun
  • Wire cutter
First you'll need your picture frames. Wood frames work best. You can purchase an new frame or find a cool old one in your house or from a second hand store. I would recommend visiting some yard sales to find frames since it is yard sale season. I found my frames in my parents garage from some old decorative pictures. 

I almost kept my frames gold but they had begun to chip so I opted to paint them. Pick a paint color you like and spray paint your frame. Of course, remember to cover the surface you're spraying on. 

After the paint dries measure your wire caging to fit the back of the frame. You'll want the caging to cover the back of the frame enough to secure the caging on the back with staples. Use your wire cutters to cut the caging. Be careful not to cut or poke yourself with the wire. I suggest protective gloves if you have them when doing this.

Next, after you've cut and measured your caging it's time to staple the caging to the back of the frame. Use as many staples as you see fit to hold the caging in place. 

If you have any wire that is too long and hangs over the back edge of the frame cut those pieces and viola!  You have a completed jewelry organizer!
Next, add in your favorite jewelry. 

 For necklaces use the S hooks. Hang the S hook on your chosen place on your organizer and hang your necklaces from the hook. Larger hooks will be able to hold more necklaces. 

Have fun!

Spring Jewelry 2012!

Hey everyone! I just wanted to stop by and share some of my newest items. I am so excited and inspired by the Spring 2012 fashion from the bright colors to fun prints to the color blocking! So in the coming weeks I will be bringing you my Spring trend inspired jewelry. These pieces are what I've already created. Aren't they fun?

Bright Color Wrap Bracelets

Painted Wood Heart Rings

Last time I talked about making a bracelet statement and I have included some awesome bracelets to help you do that! I've got bright and color blocked hoop earrings and fun little painted wood heart rings.

Pink and Green Hoop Earrings

 One of my favorites is this Turquoise and Gold Chevron necklace! You can't tell in the picture but it's long and will look great with a loose cropped top.

These are just some of my new spring items and of course new items are added weekly (sometimes multiple times a week) so make sure you stop by and check them out! I'm excited to see where my inspiration will take me!

What Kind of Statement Will You Make?

So over the last couple of years we've heard a lot about statement jewelry. This is jewelry that is maybe big and bold or very glam and sparkly, anything that makes a statement and gets you noticed. This spring will be no different in that we'll still want statement jewelry or the combination of pieces that make a statement. Bracelets are making a big splash this spring and I say let's make a bracelet statement!

Just the other day I had fun putting together a bunch of bracelets from the shop to make a bracelet statement of my own. That's my arm in the picture. I mixed zipper bracelets, Swarovski wrap bracelets, colored wood bead bracelets, and embellished friendship bracelets. I loved the look and will definitely do it again! Stop by the shop and pick out some for yourself! (The zipper bracelets are on sale until 2/4/12. Check the shop for the coupon code.) I've got more coming as well!

Cocktail Party - Charcoal Dress

Here's another ensemble for your parties this season. This is for a more sophisticated look. I started with a charcoal velvet tube dress that is figure flattering. I love the sheen of the velvet and that the dress is dark but not the traditional black.

In a Flash Earrings

Sparkle is a must have for holiday ensembles so next I've added these lovely sparkling dangle earrings. Either pair would work but I'm going to go with the clear pair for my choice.

The double finger ring is a touch of trendiness to your outfit that you're sure to receive compliments on!

Silver Mixed Media Bracelet

On the opposite wrist from the double finger ring I would wear this fun mixed media bracelet completed with pearls and sparkle!

Black Sheer Dot Tights

Purple Platform Heels

I love adding a pop of color so to finish off this ensemble I'm adding these purple platform heels. I would add a pair of patterned tights with this to make the outfit a little more fun, but you can also go with a pair of black opaque tights to keep things simple.
