Hello 2014

January 30, 2014

Wow, it really has been a while!

The end of 2013 was kind of crazy for me, both with work and life, and in the midst of it all I’m ashamed to say my blog was rather neglected.  But after a well earned rest things are starting to settle down again and I’m really looking forward to what 2014 has in store 🙂

To begin the year, I have a new studio!  Working from home was beginning to feel quite isolating, and as I was also moving house it seemed the right time to make the change.  It’s really lovely to be in a communal space with other creative people around me, and I’m hoping it will help me focus on work without all those homely distractions around!


And my first act as a new studio owner is……a SALE!

Yes, incase you hadn’t noticed, VALENTINES DAY is just around the corner, so in honour of true love, I am offering 14% off ALL myBearHands jewellery until the 14th February in my Etsy Shop!  Just enter the coupon code VALENTINES14 at the checkout for your discount.


Next up is a big change around how I work.  With the inevitable quite time until Spring is sprung, I’m putting my energies into trying out some new materials.  Up until now I have been producing my jewellery using shrink plastic, which is great but has it’s limitations in quality, aesthetics and value.  My plan is to keep the focus on the illustrations and designs as I always have, but using either metal, wood or ceramic.

I’m hoping this will make my jewellery higher quality, more durable and life proof (!) as well as more pleasing visually and to the touch.  And I will of course will be letting you all know as soon as I make any breakthroughs!

Until then…..good luck with those New Years resolutions 😉
