2021 was many things for our little studio: exciting, daunting, and, as always, dazzling. We appreciate the support and encouragement of our customers more than we can express. We’re thrilled to enter the new year with tons of inspiration and hope for what’s to come, but, first, let’s reflect on the unforgettable highlights of this year.
Kicking off the Year with Inspo from our Capitol City
We like to refresh and rejuvenate by traveling to nearby cities and studying what other retailers are working on. In celebration of the new year, our team took a trip to Austin to hit the reset button. We love shopping on South Congress, the downtown district, and hitting up the Domain to get fresh ideas for our little studio. We spend this time getting inspired, but, more importantly, we cut loose, make each other laugh, and have FUN. Of course, no Design House group outing is complete without a rooftop photoshoot!
We Got it From Our Mamas
Mother’s Day is one of our absolute favorite holidays and we cherish being able to celebrate all of the amazing mamas out there with all of you! We made some truly spectacular sentimental pieces for wonderful mothers this year, and we celebrated by creating specially curated Mother’s Day gift boxes, fit for a queen.
Diva Las Vegas
JCK returned this year, and so did we! We had a magical time picking out rare gemstones, learning more about our ever-changing industry, and soaking up all of the inspiration that jewelry shows have to offer. We saw some of the most gorgeous, jaw-dropping pieces of jewelry we’ve ever seen and were reminded why we do what we do so passionately. We ate wonderful food, met wonderful people, and had a wonderful time.
On the heels of celebrating our fearless leader’s birthday, we celebrated 16 sweet years in business (and one year in our new downtown location)! We were blown away at the response for our birthday party, from people waiting in line down the block for us to open to all of the selfies and tagged photos of your fabulous faces with our amazing super pink balloon arch! We can’t thank our wonderful community enough for coming up to support such a momentous day with our team. You’re truly gems!
Our customers and team made this year spectacular. We had a record-breaking holiday season and couldn’t keep up with our custom jewelry orders (which is a wonderful problem to have)! From precious keepsake gifts handmade in our studio to all of the delicious homemade treats brought to us by our amazing friends, this year was one for the books.
For 2022, we wish for peace amidst chaos, joy amidst doubt, and jewelry that shines across the room for all to see.
