50% off at MLC Designs Website

Enjoy 50% off fall designs at my newly relaunched website. Sale ends soon!

I hope that you are all enjoying this season - I am forcing myself to appreciate simple things - walks with no hurry, flowers by the bed, a great cup of coffee, a peaceful day.

Here are a couple of new items, just added to my etsy shop, cargoh shop and website. One is somewhat familiar - my music necklace, but it is now on an oxidized chain that has been polished with steel wool before being tumble polished (a different effect from being brushed). The other item features my signature gemstone wrapping with tiny multicolor spinel rondelles - love!

Monday, October 4, 2010


I am excited and proud to announce that my work has been accepted by Cargoh, a juried marketplace for the independent artist! Music, clothing, art and jewelry are featured, as well as lots of other great stuff. I hope that you will check out my shop!

I can be found at a few other places too:

My zibbet shop (fall sale in progress!)

Please become a fan of MLC Designs on Facebook and get a first look at sales and new work.

After being a wonderful venue for shoppers to find my work for just under 5 years, the time has come to close the store. The reasons for this change are many - the main cause being the programming challenges that maintenance of the store requires. I much prefer to design and create rather than work on programming. Additionally, traffic to my etsy and 1000markets shop is at least 10 times the traffic to the original web store.

As always, you can still find me at etsy or 1000markets. Through etsy, all forms of payment, including PayPal, are accepted. At 1000markets, Amazon Payments is the method available.

Currently, all of the items listed in my etsy shop are marked down by at least 50% + free domestic shipping! You can also purchase through my very new Bixbe outlet. I have attached a couple of links to sale items below:

I'm Selling This:
Simple Circles Ne...$37.00

I'm Selling This:
Simple Circle Bra...$48.00

I'm Selling This:
Simple Pendant (L...$21.00

I look forward to listing wonderful pieces for the fall in late August.

Happy Summer!

I will be taking the summer off and plan to have wonderful new jewelry pieces ready for the fall. Until then, please enjoy deeply discounted (40%-50% off original prices) works of art and complimentary domestic shipping at my etsy shop - Happy Summer!

SPRING 2010 Designs

I always enjoy the "fresh start" feel of Spring. I have posted new designs at my shops, both here and here, as well as on my website. As always, I focus on clean lines with occasional pops of color. All bracelets work well in multiples together and I am somewhat fascinated with the bold wire-wrapped ring (especially since I got my hands on some exceptional lapis and amazonite this year!). There will also be one or two long necklaces added to the collection. Most designs will be limited to 2 or 3, so if you like something, grab it when you see it!

Both domestic and international shipping is free on my website - enjoy!

Sunday, April 4, 2010

Psst - all domestic purchases at my etsy shop ship free - HAPPY SPRING!

Cleaning out !

As I worked this past weekend, I came across a box of cabochons that I purchased but never used. I have made these gems available on my destash shop on etsy, mlcroots. Please check them out if you are interested in getting some wonderful stones as ridiculously low prices!

I have also loaded some new designs on my 1000markets shop, my etsy shop and my website. I hope that you enjoy viewing them (I had fun with my new nikon;) )
