Happy New Year – 2019

Happy New Year!

It was certainly a very busy period in the lead up to Christmas. Some customers even arrived to collect orders only a couple of days before the big day.

But now is the time I dread! Being a small business January is a month filled with paperwork. It’s the month when I start applying for many of the events that I attend throughout the year. In fact, I have applied for a couple of 2019 Christmas Fairs already!

It is also the month for the dreaded ‘tax return’. Every year I promise myself that I will be better organised and do it earlier next time, but sadly that never seems to happen. It’s a job I put off and every time there’s a new piece of jewellery to make instead, I obviously get side-tracked.

That being said, I love what I do and wouldn’t have it any other way.

I also wouldn’t be here without my customers, so would like to take this opportunity to wish you all a very Happy, healthy and Prosperous 2019 x

Pearl – The birthstone for June

June is such a beautiful month and what’s more it has the best possible birthstone …pearl!
Online orders definitely increase with quite a lot of them including the gift wrap option, so hopefully there are lots of lovely birthday gifts being received.

It’s also the perfect month for a wedding. Couples who marry in June, stay together for life …or so I’m told.  My parents married on the 19th June and were together for 64 years.  For their diamond wedding anniversary they were very excited to receive a card from the Queen congratulating them.

There’s another interesting saying – “Marry when June roses grow, over land and sea you’ll go.” Whether that just means you’ll have an exciting honeymoon or you’ll have an exciting life together, either way it sounds like fun 🙂

Biba & Rose pearl jewellery is available from as little as £10 and if you’re looking for a bespoke piece I’m happy to make something to your exact requirements.
