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.

Crochet Bib Necklace

 

I spend many hours viewing websites, fashion trends, bead shops, web pages for internet marketing and so on… As I was doing so a few months ago, I came across a view of a bib collar necklace.  I immediately thought, wow you can transform a plain dress, shirt or blouse or even a t-shirt with one of those so I decided to incorporate them into my designs.  I immediately found the person that would hand knit our very own designs. MY MOM.  I always remember my mom stitching away in front of the television watching her Spanish soap novels called “novelas” in Spanish.  I never quite understood why we had all of these crochet mantels all over the house.  On the kitchen table, on the night stand, and on every table we had.  I guess I never saw the quality in these cute round knitted mantels.  I now see that crochet has become so popular and so complexed.  Crocheting has even made it to the fashion trends.  This one is a sample of many designs that we have.  I decided to wear it with this plain cotton long H&M dress and received so many compliments.  I dressed it up immediately with my Country Chic Bib Necklace. Many new designs are in the works thanks to my mom, the “crochet expert”.  Some are already on display at http://www.catilla.etsy.com

Curio Thread

I have done my research and have sought for the best until my curiosity led me to Curio. I want the best for my design making and want the best for my buyers.   They have to flow, they have to drape, they have to feel smooth on the skin and they need a sharp look. The quality is what counts and not the quantity. I want the best for my buyers and of course, for myself.  You see, my jewelry box is not full of junk and wasted metal but of items that will be used over and over again.  So on my search for the best thread, I found the Curio!  Curio is lustrous, elegant, and versatile with a beautiful sheen. I absolutely love the Curio crochet cotton thread imported from India because of the facility to make a stitch.  It is strong and does not fall apart in the designing process.   

Our Boho Wrap jewelry and accessories are especially made for comfort and style and made to last. Take a look at this one and many others at http://www.catilla.com

Boho Chrysoprase IMG_7748 IMG_8437

Stitch by stitch and a bit of patience is what it takes to design this Boho Bohemian style wrap necklace.  A flax linen yarn full of minty colored freshwater pearl nuggets from the sea. I never thought of crochet as a hobby to be liked.  I found it tedious and somewhat complexed. Every stitch counts and the quality of the stitch makes such a difference in the outcome of the design. Throughout my designing years, I have taken a liking to natural fibers and natural bead elements to use in my designs.  After growing weary for a while, I finally found a new liking… Crocheting. This natural necklace is a handmade crochet wrapped necklace.  An absolute for Summer wear! This one is a reminder of the beach and it’s fine nature. This lovely wrap is available at my store http://www.etsy.com/listing/178491535/boho-minty-freshwater-pearl-crochet?ref=shop_home_feat_2Boho Minty Freshwater Pearl Wrap Necklace
