I can't believe how fast this year went by. We already started the new year and I'm very excited about it. Every time a year finishes is a good moment to look back at the year and learn from your mistakes, remember the good things and forget about the bad or sad events. 2011 was by far the best year because we welcomed our little Zaide to our family. This happy baby (she literally smiles almost all day) has brought so much joy to our home. I also had the luck that my mom arrived just in time for her birth and my dad and family in law came shortly after and spent some wonderful days with us.
Business wise I can't complain. I surpassed the 500 sales in one of my jewelry shops and 200 in the cufflinks shop, plus all the local, website and Facebook sales, so basically there are more than 1,000 people who wear an Estylo Jewelry item all over the world. I also have over 1,000 admirers of my shop and more than 2,300 Facebook Fans. Wow, I can't even believe how good this year was. A huge thanks to all my loyal return customers that support my business day after day. These are my best seller crystal jewelry pieces.
There are also more than 200 brides that chose my jewelry for their special day. It's so flattering every time I get a bridal order, just to know that they had so many options but decided to wear one of my creations for their wedding. Some weddings were just filled of my jewelry, since they ordered for the bride, mother, mother in law, bridesmaids and flower girls. And of course don't forget about the groom and the best men, they had their custom cufflinks as well. Thank you so much!
But now lets look forward, what's awaiting for Estylo Jewelry in 2012? Lots of new designs for sure! Given that I have so many personalized requests I decided to expand my business offering personalized hand stamped jewelry. Currently it's only available for Facebook Fans, but I will be adding them slowly to my shops.
As for men, I had to stop custom orders for cufflinks because of my pregnancy and now the birth of my daughter, since the process with the resin is toxic. Well, the good news is that after researching other alternatives and trying a few different out I found a great substitution and will start offering them in my shop around mid January. See for yourself how great they look!
Ok everyone, I looked back and discovered so many great things that happened this year and now I welcome 2012 and hope it will be even better. Thank you to everyone who supported me during 2011 and I wish all of you a Happy New Year!!!
