Solshei is taking a short break

Note from shop owner Hi, there!

Thank you for visiting my shop! Unfortunately (but fortunately) I am now juggling my full-time job as well as a full-time college class load. As you can imagine, both are taking more time than I am able to muster. For now, my shop is closed due to time constraints, but I will be opening it every once in a while, when time permits, especially during school breaks. So, if you’re looking for something special, be on the lookout. I’m so sorry for the inconvenience, but very thankful for your attempted business! If you’d like, you can check back, every now and then, and you may just find my shop open, but just for a short period of time, so act quickly if you find something you’d like. Again, thank so much for visiting Solshei! 

xo,
Marisol

About Solshei

Sales 1,399
On Etsy since 2010

Here is the 'me' part.

I, eagerly, waited outside for the doors to open. I was eagle-eyeing every employee in sight for one of them would, eventually, come and open the doors for the impatient customers (me). I looked up at my grandfather who just smiled back at me. He, more than anyone, knew how anxious I was for those doors to open. It was our weekend thing, actually. Every Friday, I would ask him if he would take me to the novelty store the following day and every Saturday I was up with the rooster and knocking on his door (he was our neighbor).

The older lady with shocking red hair came and unlocked the doors. I almost always saw her smiling face when we came. Like grandpa, she probably noticed my excitement too. My grandfather opened the door for me and I made a beeline to the bead section, almost leaving a dust trail for him to ingest as he tried to catch up to me. Once I laid eyes on all the different bead colors, shapes, and sizes, I was utterly spellbound. I felt like the happiest little girl in the whole wide world. Looking back at that little girl now, the sparkle in her eyes was hard to miss. Her happiness just oozed out of her.

Those days were the beginnings of my entrepreneurial undertakings. I designed and handcrafted the simplest, beaded, jewelry sets and sold them to my classmates for a couple of dollars. With the money I made, I would buy candy from our corner market, sell them in between jewelry orders at school, and use the profits to buy jewelry-making supplies. I would, of course, buy more candy for the extra earnings. In hindsight, the thought of reinvesting my profits from my ‘candy business’ to continue my ‘jewelry business’ was quite advanced thinking for a 7 year-old.

That love for shiny, colorful, handcrafted, pretty things never, ever left me. Fast-forward to today – I still make shiny, colorful, handcrafted, pretty things and I, absolutely, love it! I am fully concentrated in my jewelry business and, thankfully, make enough profits from that to maintain and grow it so that I can do without the candy side-job. I have my own home studio, which I have gradually stocked, and continue to do so.

By the way, my name is Marisol. I am an avid reader, grammar junkie, a hungry cook, and a very spur-of-the-moment traveler, among many other things. I am passionate, outgoing, witty, curious, spontaneous, silly, a perfectionist, and sometimes plain crazy. I was born in Miami Beach and have lived in Miami all my life, although I would love to live in the middle of nowhere, away from the hustle and bustle of this hectic city life. I am bilingual, thanks to my Cuban parents. I love life and one of my favorite aspects of it is color. I just love colors.

I appreciate your taking the time to read about me and visiting my shop, even if just to window-shop. I am a message away, should you need anything, or even to say, “Hi!”

It’s been very nice “meeting” you!

xo,
Marisol

    Hi! Every once in a while, I'll pitch an idea to her (the one right above me) and, once she gets her hands on it, it'll be morphed into a TOTALLY different thing. Oh, well...

Frequently asked questions
How is your jewelry shipped?

Each piece of jewelry is placed inside a small, zipped bag and then packaged in a jewelry box, which is wrapped with colorful string - perfect and ready for gift-giving. The order is then packaged inside a bubble-padded mailer, which protects jewelry during transit.

Can I cancel my order?

As long as the item has not shipped yet, just contact me and I will cancel the order for you. However, if the piece is personalized (for example a ring which is sized for you, etc.) and production on it has begun, unfortunately, cancelation would be too late by then. Please take this into consideration prior to placing an order on a personalized item.

Do you accept custom work?

Depending on the request, I may be able to tweak one of my designs but, for the most part, I like to stay true to my style. :)

Is it possible for you to change the item value in the custom form for your international buyers?

As much as I love my international customers (you are 30% of my sales - thank you!), unfortunately, I am unable to fulfill that request. The accuracy of this information is enforced by your country and there it nothing that we, foreign sellers, can do about that. It is illegal to provide fictitious information on a government form so, please, I, kindly, ask that you not put me in the position to deny such request.
