As 2017 has come to a swift end, and 2018 steps up for its turn, we want to send you the biggest of Thank Yous. 2017 has been an amazing whirlwind of a year for us here at Baltic Beauty, and we just simply couldn't have done it without your support. So here is a quick recap of our best moments of 2017.
We could not be more proud to see our designs flying off to new customers all around the globe. From across the pond in the USA, to our loyal friends over in Australia and Germany, we can't wait to see where Baltic Beauty will be heading to next.
We're so proud to be an Amazon Handmade shop owner, head to our storefront over at Baltic Beauty Jewellery Amazon. Not only this but now you can shop Baltic Beauty on Craft'd - a handmade marketplace based in our old University town of Exeter, Devon. Our Adjustable Tulip Ring was chosen by the winner of Craftd's opening raffle, as their prize of choice!
If you haven't already spotted our two latest collections, you can find them here at Amber Jewellery Collections. The Silver Linings collection was inspired by our cheery disposition but mostly our love for the ancient metalwork crafts of filigree and ajoure. Whilst our Biography Collection was inspired by people, allowing you to adorn personalised keepsake charm jewellery with meaning.
We've had the upmost pleasure working with a number of beautiful and inspiration women this year. Including Instagram Fashion, Travel & Lifestyle blogger Beth Norton who did a beautiful editorial feature of our jewellery collections including our popular Tulip Ring, Boho Feather Earrings and Butterscotch Infinity Bracelet. Ruxandriana featured our Princess Crown Pendant in her OOTD (outfit of the day) over on her blog "From Brussels with Love". The lovely and creative women over at CraftMonkees, who handcraft modern jewellery displays and holders - used our Dainty Heart Studs and Tulip Ring to adorn their beautiful designs. We really have been spoilt with wonderful women! So guys, this 2018 surely its your turn to get involved?!
As well as having the pleasure of being featured in a number of blog posts and articles throughout the year (I was more than overwhelmed to see both our Website and Instagram account being featured in "TOP 10 to watch" articles) we were also featured in several jewellery articles and magazines! Most notably our Princess Crown Ring, Tulip Ring and Rope Frame Droplet Pendant featured in the last 3 issues of Glamour UK! We were also so pleased to have feature articles written in Jewellery Monthly, House of Coco and the University of Exeter's fashion magazine Razz.
Now this may seem like a minor achievement, but reaching 2000 followers was a big deal for us. With not having much of the prerequisites for recording our everyday life, thanks to our head photographer of Trio Stories and our wonderfully photogenic jewels, 2000 of you beautiful people now like to see our work, my face and generally what goes on in our office on a daily basis! So thank you for your ongoing support, we will always try our best to produce great imagery for you!
We have officially registered our Name and Logo with the Intellectual Property Office! YAY! After more trouble than you'd even believe with people trying to use our name and brand, (the cheek!) we finally have our trademark!
The International Amber Association have named Baltic Beauty an Official Recommended Seller of Amber Jewellery. You can explore our multilingualcertificates of amber jewellery authenticity here. With this recommendation, we testify to the authenticity of the amber we use, the procedural corectness, the high quality of the end jewellery piece, as well as our reliability and honesty throughout. With the rise of false and pressed amber, it is more important than ever to find a trustworthy amber jewellery seller. And that's us!
Arguably my proudest moment of 2017 was the arrival of our Luxury Jewellery Boxes. We have paid so much attention to ensure that every item of jewellery comes with beautiful packaging. Designed and perfected for over a year with simplicity in mind, every box features a pure white, slightly textured feel, beautifully lined with the softest, light grey suede interior. The delicate grey offers a luxurious background on which to present your jewellery piece - to either you, or to your loved one. Our iconic logo proudly imprints the surface of every box. So now you can enjoy our luxury jewellery box free with every order. & not only this, but we now also have a luxury gift wrap option to complete your Baltic Beauty gift!
Pantone announced that its Colour of the Year 2018 is Ultra Violet. A "dramatic, provocative and thoughtful" shade of purple - which makes some stark predictions about 2018.
Ignore the Black Friday Sales and marketing madness - it really is the thought that counts. Use our quick fire guide to finding the perfect gift for your loved ones this year.
