I have been honored to be a part of Sue Whitney's created artisan team since 2009. Through the many events she's created and wonderful visionary that she is, my confidence, style offerings of designs and business has continued to grow. Sue has once again changed things up and late last Summer opened a brick n mortar shop in Lanesboro, which is a showcase for some cutting edge Junk repurposers. I am fortunate to still be apart of this venue, which is called, 'Getfresh Vintage JUNKMARKETS Little Sister'.
There are other jewelry designers also show cases in the shop with a larger offering, so suffice to say, jewelry is nicely represented at GetFresh Vintage.
These genuine faceted rubies with Sterling Silver lever backs and links are accented with these wonderful Jesus and child vintage medals. (Available at GetFresh)
One of the ways you can tell a Mimi-Toria's Designs creation apart from others is in the details used. Primarily Sterling Silver, Antiqued Sterling Silver or 14 kt Gold Filled Earwires/findings are used. Another detail is the wire wrapping techniques often found in my jewelry will provide you with an heirloom quality piece of jewelry.
I also have custom designed I.d. tags that I designed and had created to add value with a signed piece of jewelry identifying and guaranteeing my customers that they are buying one of my one of a kind designs and not a copied piece. With 17 years invested in my career, I want to keep my reputation and integrity intact.
After 4 1/2 years of hand stamped pieces, they continue to be a popular and meaningful line of jewelry that speaks to my customers.
Currently, there are like 20+ pairs of one if a kind earrings available within this shop. Many are 'bride' worthy for that vintage feel on a Brides Wedding Day.
I have purposely from the beginning of my jewelry design business geared my kinds if jewelry to be many and vast, do that I can meet the interests and needs of many customers rather than just one certain look or style type. I believe this has benefited my longevity in the business when it is so common now, as well as garnered me some of my dearest customers and friends.
