Firstly, we would like to say that our thoughts are with one of our newest Australian stockists, Something Different who are in Rockhampton, Queensland – and suffering with terrible floods. We offer our very best wishes to everyone affected by the floods. If you wish to find out more about what’s happening, and the relief fund, just click here.
January can be a bit of a gloomy month even at the best of times, so here are some things to hopefully cheer you up…..!
Our Burt’s Bees / BBKA auction before Christmas was great fun, but obviously the Ring could only go to one person – the highest bidder! But now everyone has the chance to own one of these coveted Rings with two on-line competitions running at the moment with both Elle and Glamour. Each Ring will be made to order for the winner, and the prize also comes with a Burt’s Bees Radiance kit. You have until the end of the month to get clicking!
We sell our jewellery all over the world, but probably one of our most exotic stockists is Cooper Island Beach Club, which is on one of the gorgeous Virgin Islands. Unfortunately I didn’t manage to get a sales trip there, but the lovely Louise sent these pics through……
Sigh…….sometimes I think our jewellery has a more exciting life than we do!!
You may have watched the film ‘Love Actually’ recently (or quickly switched over!) as it’s always on a lot over Christmas, and we always get lots of enquiries whenever it is shown, as Alex is credited with making jewellery for the film. However, we didn’t make the piece that everyone is always after- which is the Necklace that Alan Rickman’s character buys for his mistress – rather than his wife, played by Emma Thompson. We can’t quite work out why everyone wants to buy a replica of a Necklace that causes so much heartache in the film, but you can see it here – with Rowan Atkinson going slightly crazy with his gift-wrapping.
The Necklace Alex did make, was worn throughout by Martine McCutcheon’s character……
If you can spot it, it’s a little Gold Heart Locket with a pearl hanging from it.
For a more current film, we’re all really excited to see ‘The King’s Speech’ – not only because it is having rave reviews from just about everyone, but also because they filmed a scene just around the corner from our studio! We watched how they transformed the street, so it will be great to see it on the big screen.
Well, it already seems a long time ago, but I hope that everyone had a lovely Christmas and New Year.
