Hello Jewelry Lovers!
Nalin here, I wanted to preface this MuseLetter with a huge thanks to ya'll. A year and a half ago I started building my own line and helping Shashi, my father, full time. It wasn't the best move financially, rather it was a labor of love. Designing, manufacturing and selling jewelry has been fulfilling in a manner that my career prior wasn't.
I got pretty scared when Covid-19 locked down large parts of the country. We've made good progress in that 18 months, last years sales were the best in a decade and I was more than a bit afraid that an economic slowdown would derail a lot of that.
And to some extent it did. International shipments are traveling slower than normal right now. I've learned a lot of lessons with my made to order line, the manufacturers and foundries I was using have been severely constrained and backed up. Deliveries have been slow. But thankfully we have patient customers, and with a bit of luck we should have all the backordered BoneNE items shipped this month and better yet, the unexpected supply constraints have inspired me to start stocking the more popular items and diversified my supply chain.
But by and large our business has been unaffected by Covid. Designs in our warehouse (everything except the BoneNE line) are usually shipped same day, which is good because you guys have been ordering a lot of them.
So here we are three months later, and we're surviving and thriving. I'm thankful for every order, every share, and every word of mouth recommendation, every review. Thank you for your patronage, for sharing our store and designs with other history lovers. You guys are awesome.
