Have Broken Jewelry? Will Fix!

Does your Jewelry Drawer look like this?

No? Well, neither does mine. Actually this is a shot of my moms jewelry drawer, well, one of them at least. What does that have to do with anything you ask?

Well...I'm super excited to announce I'm now offering Super Cheap Jewelry Repair!
How did this all come about you ask?

Well, if you're anything like a lot of New Yorkers I know then you have at least one pair of cheap earrings or a bracelet or necklace... something new and shiny and under $5 that you maybe saw in the street vendors bin on your way home from work, or in the mall, or maybe its a keep sake that someone else gave you? Or a vintage piece or even something antique thats falling apart...but you've kept it because you love it! Either way, we've all got it...the cheap good jewelry stuffs! And maybe, like my mom, you've got a lot of it.

And if you're anything like my mom (probably not, because really noone is quite like mom) then you've got a lot of cheap jewelry, you wear it all the time and you cherish it. And because you wear it a lot, something always breaks or pops or comes aloose.

I know what you're thinking...it doesn't make any sense...why would your mom buy cheap jewelry from a street vendor when you can probably make her all the AzizaJewelry in the world? Well, mom definitely has all the AzizaJewelry she could ever want but...what can I say my mom likes to buy the cheap stuff just to buy it! Sometimes there's nothing like instant gratification. The proof is in the jewelry drawer pic!

Lucky for her though whenever something new comes aloose that she absolutely loves, I'm there to fix it for her...which got me to thinking...

I'm sure there's plenty of other people out there with all sorts of broken jewelry out there...and I'm here to help. Whatever the issue is, I'm offering Jewelry Repair. Yep, thats right Jewelry Repair on the cheap. After all if you paid $5 for your necklace you shouldn't have to spend $20 to get it fixed right?

So here's what I'm offering: Restringing, relooping, rewiring, replacing, whatever it is that your piece needs (that I am actually capable of doing to fix it that is) and I will do it for a great price!

So to sum it all up, I'm now offering Repair Service! Yay! Feel free to contact me for a price quote! aziza@azizasboutique.com

It's 9-09-09! What a day to return after a little bit of a hiatus. It's been quite a busy summer for me this year. I've been busy taking a few courses and also working on new designs. I can't say its been all work and no play though. Besides that, I have also been playing on a pool league, mostly to brush up on my skills, and to have something else to look forward to besides work.

It's also been a great time to catch up with old friends and make new ones. There's always so much going on in NYC in the summer time, so much to do, see, and somewhere to go. I've also been really fortunate to have my work featured in quite a few online blogs and treasuries on Etsy. I haven't made it to the front page of Etsy...yet! But I'm sure it's only a matter of time. Want to see one of the pieces featured in a recent blog? My egg post earrings were featured here! Oh, yes and my wine glass charms were written about here!

Also since its Fall and all (well not quite officially yet) I'm getting ready for my Fall inspired and Halloween inspired jewelry. Two of my all time favorites are my candy corn and my pumpkin glass bead earrings. Sure to get you lots of stares, oooh's and ahhh's. They are really just so much fun.

One more thing- I'm gearing up for another jewelry giveaway so stay tuned...details are coming soon! Very soon! I promise!
