Welcome back Tiger!!
In my previous post, I talked about me doing the K.I.S.S thing with designing new ‘Arc’ Hoops,
because lately( generally all summer actually) , I’ve been reaching for earrings that make a smaller statement.
Mostly I’ve been going small when I’m heading out to do food shopping, or like short trips to the highstreet or post office, sitting out in the sun, meeting peeps for Coffee… (herbal for me)….situations where I’m not to-to worried about what I’m throwing on my body. A nice vest top, shorts flip flops, shades and I’m gone.
Once I got started on this design, it was hard to stop playing…. frenzied 🤪…ideas pouring out my head. Playing + making puts me at ease. Which has been really nice, because I’ve been feeling emotional and unbalanced over the last few weeks.
Staring at the laptop most days, doing admin, posting on social, composing and send emails to potential stockists. And at the end of the day feeling drained. To the point where I’ve been feeling down, crying a little in the mornings. The crying in the mornings ….yeah that’s when I decided I needed to stand back and take a long hard look at how I was managing my working week.
Poorly is an understatement. I know me well, If I take myself away from doing something creative, I dry up inside like a dusty prune. I’m far too young and lovely to be likened to a prune. After drying my tears, I took a deep breath and reminded myself… TUT is a choice, not a burden, let’s find the fun again, and lead with that going forward. That kickstarted all the playing with wire I’ve been doing since designing Arc earrings. Its been like having rocket fuel up me bum . 🚀
Just for my mailing list Tribe, I’m opening-up pre-orders for Arc. From today through to next Sunday, you can pre-order these earrings… Pre-order Arc earrings by August 11th, I’ll make them up and ship your earring to you the week of August 19th.
That means you will have a safe sized pair of Caribbean inspired hoops to jump up + whok up pon de road in at Carnival, a small pair to rock out at Afterparties, to Panorama Steel pan competition, fetes, and end of summer bar-b-ques. Arc is available Sizes- Tiny + Small.
You gotta be on my mailing list. That’s the only way to pre-order these. You can’t find them on the website otherwise. Join up to the list right here. to pre-order your pair.
Until next time,
