And just like that, we're in August!
August feels like a transitional month, to me. We're past the full height of summer, but it's the long-awaited summer holiday from school (here in England, at least), and it's the time to slow down a little before it all begins again in September.
With that in mind, I'm going to be taking a break from orders for some time in August, to allow me to finish up some important client work for other jewellers, start to make preparations for a busy Autumn, and most importantly, take a summer break with my boys.
The shop will be closed from 7th August and will reopen on September 1st.
This year has been overwhelming in many ways, but in terms of this small business of mine it has been overwhelmingly positive. I'd like to say thank you to you all for your enthusiasm and your support, whether that be chatting with me on social media, reading these emails, liking and sharing and supporting the things I share online, and ultimately, purchasing jewellery from me. It's a total joy to make the things I make and see them bringing you joy too, and even though it's not always an easy path to tread, I can't imagine doing anything else.
I have some beautiful and exciting things in the pipeline for the rest of the year which I'll look forward to sharing, so do stay in touch!
I'll stay fairly active on Instagram throughout the summer and will update my subscribers via email when I have things to share, so please join us here if you'd like to stay informed.
Wishing you a happy, restful summer, whatever you get up to!
