thank you for a smashing year!

after another year of crafting my heart away i get to send out another thank you post on the blog.

thank you for keeping even my oldest of designs in high demand. 

and when i say high demand i am not kidding.

i soldered, cleaned and packaged [well, my awesome parents did the packaging] over 50 pairs of earrings [& some singles too!].

oh! i forgot to mention some steps here...

...i did texture sheets of metal, cut out disc after disc and dap them..

...before i went though all of these 3m wheels.

I did a quick run through my new set up before my one and only fair of the season, Bazaar Bizarre

and i also crashed on the studio couch so my late night of making could turn into an early morning of making. [2013 may call for a sofa bed]

So, here's a nice big thank you. I am grateful to have been busy enough to sleep at my studio and grateful to be making orders up until the 21st of december. As a reward to myself I will be taking some time away from my production work to clear off my bench and start fresh. It's a new year and this new year is promised to be full of fresh beginnings. Don't worry, I won't push aside my simply timeless line of designs, it is just time to add some fresh ones to the mix. 

here's to a happy, healthy new year full of fresh starts for all.
xo, kim

ps: thank you for being awesome. without buyers of handmade, i wouldn't be able to do what i love everyday. i love you for your support.
