    Posted on

    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 !

  2. Amity & Grace New Year Collection

    Posted on

    Amity_and_grace_collection

    Happy New Year !  We're starting off the new year super excited to show you our Amity & Grace collection for Spring 2017.

    With vintage illustrations and classic black and white branding, this collection is divided into seven occasions... Choose from Love, Occasions or even the topical 'Girl Boss' for gorgeous gifting solutions made from Sterling Silver, with gold and rose gold plating, designed right here in deepest Rutland.

    I love a winter walk on the beach and almost always came back home with pockets full of shells. I was feeling rather nostalgic so I incorporated some beautiful conch shells into the collection.. This swiftly became my latest obsession, poring over science publications from the 18th and 19th century for ideas and  as so often happens i was inspired by the fabulous designs with so many stories to tell and dug deeper and deeper which led to the stunning natural history images and scientific illustrations. Plus of course, my perennial favourite - the knight on a white horse... yes i know he's not coming to save me, but a girl can dream... so do indulge me.

    We should of course mention that the jewellery is made from Sterling silver to our design, it will arrive on your counter carded and cellophane wrapped and ready to pop into the stand and onto your counter.  We've designed the cards with gift giving in mind and there's a space on the back to write a message for the recipient, whether its a simple 'Happy Birthday' or an 'I love you' or something altogether saucier... there's plenty of space for your inner prose to surface.  

    Where were we...?  Ah yes, the icing on the cupcake of this collection, the presentation.

    To complement the simplicity of our collection, our countertop point of sale display is rather cool if we do say so ourselves, its made of pale wood with simple black graphics, our home town of Stamford features in pride of place  #lovewhereyoulive and of course the super slim, sliding black and white understated boxes complement this collection beautifully.
