    As we return from Spring Fair 2017 and unpack and unload (yes those scaffolding poles are uber heavy) so we've had our weekly work outs thanks very much.  Its time to reflect upon the show... The high points were definately hearing Baroness Karren Brady speak and listening to Queen of the High Street Mary Portas.

    My take away from Mary's talk was on the importance of personalisation and personalising the customers experience, whilst Karren spoke about having a clear vision and balancing motherhood and business, something that resonates with me personally as every female business owner that i know walks that particular tightrope on a daily basis.

    It was a thrill to see our jewellery on the catwalk. Our Druzy collection looked fabulous, and with its striking colourways and eyecatching pieces its really stood out !

    It was so good to catch up with so many of you and of course to meet lots of new people too... Our new collections were well received with Valentines Day and Mother's day getting a lot of attention.  Our new stand location on the main boulevard worked well and we were kept nice and busy (just how we like it)

    The debut of GirlBoss was encouraging and the new look to Narrate was super sexy, blog post on this to follow next week - suffice it say that gold printing brings all the girls to our stand !

    Our new look One Wish artwork and packaging was very popular, with customers loving both the packaging and the fact that there's now a clear space for the buyer to write a personal message to the recipient. Its all in the details..!

    Orders are being despatched and new items are being added to the website, so please do bear with us for the post show rush... 

    Thankyou for your patience and understanding, see you at Pulse in May !

    So what's a #Girlboss ?

    In case you haven't heard the term, a Girlboss is basically an idea that's come of its time.  Based on the book by Sophia Amoruso of hte same title.  Sophie's definition of a girlboss is 'someone who is in charge of her own life. She gets what she wants because she works for it. She takes control and accepts responsibility.

    She has a vision and she knows where she's going but she wants to have some fun along the way !  She takes life seriously, but not herself. She's going to change the world, or at least contribute to it in a positive way. She's bright, hardworking and in laymans terms she's 'going for it'

    Basically she's a badass !

    When i look around me i'm surrounded with strong women that fit this description, they're working, making plans, running businesses alongside family life, raising children (often alone) and making stuff happen. They inspire me every day because i see them on their tough days and on their not so sure of life days too.  So we created the Girlboss collection as a homage to these women because even the most badass of us needs a little nudge or reminder that they're doing ok from time to time..!

    Choose from some iconic slogans, naturally we have #Girlboss to start us off, but how about 'Classy, Sassy & Badassy' or the 'Super mega awesome' for good measure? We created pieces with slogans that either say it how it is, or we simply fell in love with because they inspired us...

    Oh and did we mention Unicorns?  Yes, there are unicorns in Girlboss along with coffee cups and wine glasses because whether your a protein shake kinda girl or your run entirely on caffeine there's a girlboss piece of jewellery just for you... and wine ?  Because its always wine o clock somewhere. 

    Our collection is made from Sterling Silver and finished where appropriate with Gold or rose gold plating.  This collection features our own designs so you won't see these pieces everywhere and comes in our signature branded elegant monochrome packaging. Girlboss is the perfect gift for the women in your life who are making things happen or as a present for yourself or a daily reminder that you've got this sh*t handled.
