Urban Hoops

Fall in Miami is fun.  The weather is still warm but cools down at night.  Jeans are always a staple fashion item along with a lightweight sweater.  A great pair of hoops are always needed.  These new natural shell hoops are perfect for the faIl.  They go with almost anything.  I know it’s a bit early to show these off but I know they will go quickly, especially since they are a Limited item in the store. www.catilla.etsy.com

Loving my Casual Days

Catilla Banner Blue

My days are pretty hectic almost all of the time.  This past school year I took on the task of homeschooling while running the business on a part-time basis. That means that most of my days I dressed down with jogging pants and jeans.  Some days I wore makeup and others I went bare.  I managed to come up with some really cool earring designs that said “casual” all over them.  My mental state was not in anything extravagant or luxurious, although that is not me at all except if I were going to a gala or a wedding. Since I did spend most of my time in a classroom, I skipped the glamorous days and went pretty casual. www.catilla.etsy.com IMG_5010Blue Titanium Earrings2IMG_2778

Something Blue

I absolutely love weddings! Lovely lace and pearls, veils or head pieces, and so many decisions to make.  I still like to follow traditions and when I was getting married, the “something blue” item was essential. Where would you wear it or would you hide it underneath your dress?  As I thought of the event, I designed these lovely “Something blue” earrings for a Bride’s bridal gift.  They are the perfect gift for the bride to wear before her wedding or after the actual party is over. These Aquamarine Quartz drop earrings are lovely and make a unique Something Blue gift. Aquamarine Quartz Earrings7

All Tasseled Up

What’s New and trending at the store are tassels!  It seems that tassels are popular now in trendy bohemian style jewelry, summer sandals and even apparel.   It’s funny,  a few years ago I designed a necklace with a hanging tassel but never really marketed it because I thought the idea was not going to hit. I am so happy to see them everywhere now since I am very fond of them.  I am not sure how long they will last as a trendy item but I sure am going to jump in on this season.  Here are some new items I have at the store and have already sold a few pieces.

 

 

Pine Cones and Murano are nice!

Authentic Murano is such a unique item to gift.  The intriguing process of this handmade glass is what gives it its fine quality and uniqueness. It is glass that is transformed in a furnace (in the studios of Italy), into a beautiful piece of art. Murano being one of my favorite types of glass, is seen in many of my earring designs.  Their rich hues and sparkling inner frosted colors are too lovely to resist.  These handmade earrings are designed with Sterling Silver and Emerald Murano glass beads.

Fall Frenzy

Hi, what a frenzy it has been here at Catilla! The new website launched during the summer and three months later, I decided to move the store to a new website platform.  I needed to find the best platform for the store and my products.  All of this required many hours of internet work, photography and designing some new pieces for the fall.  I was able to upload the winter crochets, but have not added the shipping fees just yet.  That requires a trip to the post office to measure packaging and weight before assigning a shipping fee for the scarves.  I was able to create some new pieces and some are at the store already. Here is a sneak peek of WHAT’S NEW. http://www.catillajewelry.com

The Big Summer Sale

Summer Sale Banner 2 copy

Have you ever watched your favorite store so closely that you hoped and prayed for a big break sale? I know I have! I am the type to check that website everyday until I get my sale. And because of my persistence and patience, I have purchased some amazing fashion items at great and almost rock bottom prizes.  Not only do I check the web pages, Facebook is so good at advertising all of the items I have looked at online.  I have even received emails with those item reminders.  Isn’t that funny!  Well, today is your big break on those Catilla designs that you have hawked so closely to get but just wished that the price was just right for you. Here it is, The Big Summer Sale.  Now, these prices might change again to their normal price after the summer sale is over. So— if you really want it, don’t hesitate to indulge. I have made that mistake so many times.  I have eyed something and then hesitated on getting past the shopping cart but only to have regretted not getting it.  Or maybe I have walked away from my cart for a bit, and BOOM, the item SOLD! I know that feeling all too well. But hopefully that won’t happen today.  Enjoy the sale! Cat.
