MGSTAR GREAT BUYS AND GIFTS(MGSTAR FASHION)
Tell us about your business.Designer/Artist Stella Ude My interest to design handmade beaded jewelry started 3 years ago, with designs for personal use. I started with basic styles and advanced to complex styles. My handmade jewelry is uniquely designed and can be custom made in any color/size to match any fashion/style. My jewelry designs and creations are truly unique above others in same category. My customers are unique and deserve individualized style/design. My jewelry is of high quality and affordable. Customers appreciate that most, especially in this economy. My designs are made from gemstones, glass, rhinestone, pearl, coral, Swarovski beads etc. My experience in quality management helps in ensuring that my products are of high quality. Most of my designs occurred to me spontaneously and are transcended into gorgeous sets. My customers are appreciated, especially those who buy products made in USA. I am truly humbled to see more women wearing my products. My goal is to reach more customers.
What makes your business stand out?I truly believe that my handmade jewelry designs supersede others in this industry. You have to try one to believe it. I say that because I can take what a customer wants and design it into a beautiful piece of jewelry that is unique to that individual customer. My custom jewelry designs are customized and designed just the way you want it. I am not satisfied until my customer is satisfied with his/her design. My designs can be made with gemstone beads such as Swarovski elements, coral, jade, cultured pearls, and agate beads etc. I give my customers opportunity and pleasure of owning a jewelry piece that will become a part of them and a piece that is treasurable. With, my designs, customers have the opportunity to bring their ideas and desires into the creativity that individualized touch. My final designed and created product not only becomes a unique representation of the customer, it also represents a quality of creation of art that will be for individual use or as a gift.
What's the best business advice you've received?Treat your customers with respect and your business will continue to grow.
