My new Bead Shop

I had a lot of extra beads lying around which I never used. So, I thought why not share those beads with everyone else. I just opened a new bead shop on etsy with really cool beads. The link is http://www.fizadesignsbeadshop.etsy.com/

You really must check it out. I have everything here for $0.99 at the moment. Shipping is also only $1.50 and $0.15 for each additional item you purchase. I am very excited about this new shop. I do need lots of visitors and hearts as those are what make my day and encourage me to do more.

Also, I made some new pieces for my jewelry shop. I just didn't have time to list them yet. I have this pair of earrings which go very well with my Luck of the Irish Green Heart Necklace. Here is a picture but its not that great so I will try to take more nice pictures and list it as soon as possible on my etsy.

Check it out. I will be back with more news later this week. Bye Bye!

Happy Thursday!

Here are all my new creations. I have not posted anything the past couple of days so I will show you all that I have been upto here. I have been busy chatting on etsy and getting to know new people. I have even made a couple of friends.

I have also made a couple of changes to my my etsy page. Go check it out at http://www.fizadesigns.etsy.com/

I changed the shop info, added FREE SHIPPING WORLDWIDE, and I also edited most of my pictures. Still working on the pictures though.
Here is my new stuff ... check it out:

Shamelessly promoting my own store =(

Hi everyone,
I'm back, after a couple of days. I was just on etsy chat and you had to buy something from someone in order to become the featured seller. I bought something but when I was the featured seller I didn't sell anything. I got all dishearted. I have twitter, a blog here, flickr, and facebook too but its like almost impossible to sell nowadays. I am also on google base now, trying to promote my shop. I love making jewelry and I wish somehow I can make it on etsy. It seems like I get no traffic in my shop. I have a very low number of views everyday, and some days I have no views. It is quiet depressing. But anyways, how are you all doing?
I made a couple of new necklaces that I have to list. I will take their pictures tomorrow, hopefully, and list them within a couple of days. Fiza makes listing everyday on etsy almost impossible for me.
I spent a lot of time in the forums and in the chatrooms today. I hope it helps in the future. I have done a lot of promoting. Now its about time I get some traffic in my store.
Thanks to all my blogs followers. I really appreciate your support, and if I make it big one day I will NOT forget you.
Anyways, it is quiet late which is probably why I am writting all this rubbish so good night people. Sleep tight!!
Love to all,

Hey everyone,
How are you all doing? I made a really cool new necklace and I couldn't wait to show it off on my blog. It is called the Three Circles of Faith and is composed of three sterling silver O's hung on a 16" chain. Here check it out on http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=22408971
Also, here is the picture, if you don't have time to go to the site.
I will talk to you all later. Bye bye!

Hellow fellows,
How are you all today? I have been very lazy lately and hadn't really added anything on etsy but today finally I listed 2 new necklaces. I have a doctor's appointment in about 40 mins so I need to go get ready so I better be going.
Also, I wanted to mention I have taken part in an art and crafts show here in Long Island, NY. I will list the details later but its in a Hilton on April 19th. I would love to see you all there. This is my first show so just for the moral boost, that is if you live in the area.
Anyways, I'll get going.
Take care everyone ... cya!

Hey everyone,
I had been really sick the past couple of days and then my daughter Fiza got sick from me so I'm sorry I didn't update much. I did make some new pieces though and I have their pictures which I will put in the end.
Life has been so hectic ever since I came back from VA. We got back Monday night and then Tuesday I was feeling a little iffy all day and then in the evening I had a fever and couldn't get out of bed. Then the next couple of days I was just lying here and there, too lazy to move. On Friday, I went out with my mom and Fiza to do some shopping for Fiza but couldn't really find what I was looking for. Saturdays, as usual my busiest day because my husband is home and I try to spend most of my time with him in our room watching new movies that we get from netflix. Tomorrow, Sunday, we were thinking about heading out to Queens and just hanging out there on 78th st in Jackson Heights.

I also have a lot of new necklace ideas that will eventually be put in actual form. I just need a little time to get my thoughts together, especially because Fiza has been extra hyper lately.

Anyways guys, I'll be leaving now because it is pretty late.

Here are the pictures of my new stuff, as I promised. Check them out:

Goodnight people!

This is what I made today and I love the way it came out!

Good mornin' everyone,

I am back in NY ... sure feels good to be back home. And my little Fiza wasn't that bad on the way back. I'll post a picture of her here in the end.

My mom just went out of the country and she got me lots of new beads .... I am so excited ... I can't wait to start working on my new projects.

Anyways, hope you all are doing great ... I'll put more pictures up soon! Bye bye for now.

Hello everyone,

I am on vacation in South Virginia which is about 9 hours drive from my place in New York. This weekend was so nice and warm here! It was 77 degrees today!!! Can't wait for summer in NY. Anyways, I just noticed that I didn't put my website here on the blog so here it is:

Please do visit! It would be great for me to see new people!

I am leaving for NY tomorrow morning and it is going to be a  nightmare because Fiza hates her car seat! But hopefully it would be a little better this time since the weather is nice and we can take her out of the car once in a while.

I forgot to ask how have you all been doing? Hope everyone had a great sunny weekend!

I'll see you all later! I have to go for now so bye bye!

My Greetings to all of you! INTRO

This is my first entry in my blog and I am still trying to figure out how to use this thing. 

My formal introduction:

Hello everyone. My name is Momina and I am the designer and the creater of Fiza Designs. I live with a very loving husband who supports me in all my crazy endeavors, and a beautiful 1 year old daughter named Fiza, hence my shops name, Fiza Designs. 

Jewelry has always been something that has made me curious and I started making it myself about 2 years ago. I am a self taught artist.

I belong to an artist family. My grandmother makes beautiful fabric and silk paintings and scarves. My mother is an artist also. She did her masters in Fine Arts and makes oil and water color paintings. Both my sisters are Graphic Designers. So, I had to do something to fit in the family I was born into, right?

Anyways, enough said for today, my duties are calling me!  

Bye bye for now,
