In case our last blog post hasn't got every jeweller/hat maker on here frantically papering polystyrene heads, we though we'd share a bit of news :)
We recently found a bit of time to promote our UK website and wanted to get the maximum exposure for the minimum time so we can spend as much time as possible beading things. We did another search for alternative fashion magazines and sent a couple of e-mails off with our new product shots attached, offering our little black number shown above as a competition prize.
Much to our astonishment and great delight, the lovely Leona at Alt Fashion magazine jumped at it and we've just posted the mask today. In addition to the giveaway, she is writing a review which we'll share as soon as we can. We'd had some success before with this sort of thing but never to such a great response, our shop views are also up across the board and still growing.
We've also just found ourselves some fantastic new packaging from MidPac - black, satiny boxes with a magnetic closure just in time for our grand showing :) We'd tried out various alternatives but nothing seemed quite right, or if it was we couldn't find the size we needed. Naturally, we are more excited about the boxes that what goes in them - what is it with creative types and stationary? Anyway, it has once again shown us that it's always worth putting in the extra time to get everything just right. When you've got that sorted, the rest just kind of comes together ;)
