MGLDesigns Review and Giveaway

Getting to know MGLDesigns
Where are you from? and a little bit about you
We are located in Utah, Salt Lake City. We are originally from Argentina! My mom Monica has crocheted and knit for years- she used to make mine and my brothers baby clothes! I, on the other hand, did not inherit this talent. Thus I am in charge of anything related to Marketing, Public Relations and presentation (I take the pictures; design the packages, business cards, postcards, etc.) When I started growing up and wanting jewelry, we realized how hard it is to get good pieces for an affordable price so years later we decided to make this into a project, which turned into a business! We’ve been MGLDesigns since 2008 and absolutely love making new designs and having people enjoy them 🙂
What items do you carry in your shop?

MGLDesigns likes to make jewelry but we emphasize in our crochet line of accessories. Jewelry is what started all of this! We love making earrings and necklaces, though we have sets, bracelets and are developing other ideas. For our crochet line, we have anything from pouches to shawls. Each unique design comes with an accompanying name. The names chosen are to represent the different ideas! My mom especially loves to make the Petite Rose Pouches because we both like cute, small things!

How did you decide on your shop name?

Haha, the funny thing is we went like, a whole month trying to figure out a name! Finally we settled for my mamas initials (since she’s the one that’s got the talent!). MGLDesigns are appropriate in that my mom is a great designer and the brain behind this!

Do you have anything new you plan on adding to your store?

We are thinking about what to have for MGLDesigns Home and MGLDesigns Bags! Those should be launched between the rest of 2010 and 2011

Do you have a blog, twitter, or facebook page?

We have a facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/mgldesigns

Twitter: http://www.twitter.com/MGLDesigns

Website in the making: http://www.mgld.net/

Future Blog on the website coming soon!

What is your inspiration when making a new item?

Definitely, my mom loves chic and elegant. She bases her designs on the ones she’s always loved to make. The flower is her signature design, which she learned by spinning like, three designs together. Modern fashion mixed with sort of Victorian era.

What items in your shop do you most enjoy making and why?

The sets of jewelry are really fun to make! But for sure the Lady Camellia and Petite Rose Pouch designs are her favorites! Currently, mine is the Sweet Remedy because I think it’s so wicked awesome! And I absolutely love the brooches

Anything else you would like us to know?

We want to have more customers! My mom is always happy to ship her stuff to people. What makes her the happiest is the fact that someone out there is enjoying one of her designs and frankly, I like to see my mommy happy, hehe

Just for kicks a little bit about me: I’m my mama’s oldest and only daughter. I’m married, have a cat that keeps me up at night by scratching endlessly on the mirror/window. I am a psychology major at the University of Utah and *love, love, love* marketing for MGLDesigns! It’s just too much fun

My Thoughts

You all know that I love special ways to dress up an outfit. MGLDesigns has found the perfect way to add a little touch of class to just about anything you might want to. The gals at MGLDesigns sent me a gorgeous pink and white brooch to review. There is a pin in the back allowing me to hook it almost anywhere. The brooch is also much thicker (in a good way) than what I thought it would be. The stitches are very tight and delicate and they are held together firmly. The white is also the most beautiful creamy color that it almost shines. I am extremely impressed with the quality of this piece. This is one of the best etsy items I have ever reviewed. Thus far I have attached it to a couple of shirts and a hair tie for my daughter. There are So many more places that this can be attached and I can’t wait to see what I come up with next!
