While the blog side of life has been quiet our third season here in our Korcula store has been busy and we have met some great people and made some wonderful pieces of jewellery.
It is hard to believe it is already September, some slightly shorter store opening hours have started (currently 9am - 9:30pm daily) and I am aiming to re-launch our blog with weekly updates. It is nice to have a bit of time to re-focus here and I look forward to sharing some of summer projects with you.
The piece on the left was a customer request, not seeing exactly what she wanted here in the store she decided to ask could we create ‘a teardrop shaped bead with a dangling silver fringe’ – sure! It is so nice being able to create something unique for someone that we have met and seeing how happy they are with our work.
Our facebook page and twitter accounts see a growing number of followers and we are enjoying interactions with our friends there. We have also started a G+ account and our store location has been verified so you can find us via Google Maps if you are visiting Korcula and wondering where we are – Ulica de Polo, beside the Marco Polo Tower. The range of online networks have all been useful steps in helping to promote our business. We have also reached out to a number of tour operators to let them know that we offer the chance for visitors to Korcula to see, learn about and enjoy watching how our filigree jewellery is made. We encourage questions from visitors and enjoy sharing the family history of filigree making and the steps involved in creating each of our pieces.
We have also increased our range of jewellery, adding some wonderful new products. We are currently working on a Filigree and Pearl range and aim to have this loaded onto our website this week.
Thanks for your patience with our often neglected blog, we hope you will re-join us for the rest of 2013 and enjoy our continued journey and growth of our Filigree Jewellery business.
