Time for change July 13 2014, 1 Comment
You asked for it and we have listened!
Just as any business, we are a constant work in progress. It has all been a learning experience, but fortunately we have been able to adapt and grow as things change. Your feedback has gotten us to where we are today, and we are so very thankful for it!
As you stroll through our web site, you will notice a few changes that we have made already.
No longer will you have to wade through page after page of items that have "sold out". We have cleaned things up, and are making sure that only the "available" items are posted. We do not have everything posted yet, but we are actively working on getting all of our inventory loaded onto our web page and available for purchase. Our plan is to set up a gallery that will showcase some of our previous items that have sold, just in case you are looking for inspiration or ideas with a custom order.
We have made a big change with our process in choosing your Swarovski Crystal color. Now instead of having to notate your color choice at checkout, you will have the ability to choose from a drop down menu to make your selection. We have streamlined things a bit...and within this drop down menu you will see 12 color choices - each corresponds with a birthstone month. Of course, we do still have many other colors available, and you can contact us directly to make any special requests.
In an effort to be fair to those with metal sensitivities and allergies, we are working on using stainless steel as much as possible with our clasps, rings, headpins, and other findings. These cause far less skin irritation than the plated connections, and do not show signs of wear of fading. In the coming months we will be offering stainless steel chains as well! We actually do have them now upon request, and will be working on adjusting our listings accordingly. Of course, all of our flatware is still silver plated, along with the flatware we use for our garden spoons and wind chimes.
We had a FANTASTIC time at the Fremont Fair in Seattle Washington this year, and are already looking forward to next year. Thank you to all of you that stopped by our booth to say hello. We made some great new friends too, and were contacted by some excellent prospects for future shows.
As of right now, we do have applications in process for at least one more show this year. We will keep you posted when we have any firm dates set up.
To all of the truckers wives (and girlfriends, husbands, etc) that have shared so much support for our line of trucking related jewelry ...a GREAT BIG THANK YOU! These necklaces, key chains, bracelets, and car mirror adornments have been the hottest selling items in our shop - and we make each and every one with a heart full of love and pride. For all you truckers out there - keep the shiny side up!
Thank you to each and every one of you that has helped us along the way. It has been an adventure, and we are excited to see what the coming months will bring!
