We've had a great 2017 and we're already excited about what 2018 will bring. But we wanted to take a moment to wish you a very happy Christmas and new year before we finally get on with sorting out our own celebrations.
Christmas and New Year orders
To get business out of the way first: you're probably now too late to get orders delivered in time for Christmas, however, we do have Gift Cards available which will be delivered to you immediately via email.
We'll continue to ship orders as usual over the Christmas and New Year period: orders will ship within 24 hours on business days from Portland, Oregon.
It's been a good year
We really have had a great 2017. It's been one of our most successful years, with lots of lovely new customers and plenty of long-standing ones who continue to support what we do. We're very grateful for both: you make what we do possible.
This year was the consolidation of a whole lot of work we've done behind the scenes over the past 2-3 years to get our jewelry production working better, our marketing efforts more co-ordinated and our websites as good as we can make them. The support from customers tells us we're on the right track with these things, so thank you.
We also launched this new USA online store, which was a huge amount of work to get set up all the way from Australia. It felt like a very major achievement to see it up and running, with orders coming in and being sent out smoothly. There was some celebrating to do!
Onwards and upwards into a new year
We're hoping to get new designs created and launched early-ish next year. I already have ideas churning which I'm looking forward to getting to work on. I'm also hoping to finally have some time to work on some entirely new products of a non-jewelry nature, which is something I've been thinking about for a few years now.
On a personal note, we are likely to be moving our home and business early-to-mid next year, so there may be some upheaval on that front. But we hope to be in a bigger and better space, which will be good.
Happy Christmas & New Year!
We hope you've had a good 2017 too. And that you'll have a very happy and restful Christmas and New Year. Thank you for your support this year, whatever form that might have taken. We look forward to seeing you in 2018.
