Our First Launch Party
We had a very successful launch party this past weekend in Boston. We are considering having additional parties at other locations since everyone had such a good time at this one. But we'll have to see what is in the cards for the next few months. We are also considering an on-line launch party, possibly with an open chat room, free giveaways, discounts, and other fun stuff. So stay tuned for info.
The activities at our launch party included two guessing games with prizes, a presentation on the interesting aspects of peridot (some of which I've been blogging about), a presentation about the nature of spiritual and contemplative beaded pieces (did you know 2/3 of the world prays with beads of some sort?), great food and libations, and everyone left with a suncatcher as a free gift.
One item purchased was from our line of sterling silver and gemstone keyrings. This particular piece was perfectly placed with a man looking for something classy, high quality, and streamlined. Another purchase was a necklace, bracelet, and earring set. I was very happy to see this set find a home. The pendant bead is so unique - weighty, very smooth, and with an excellent display of colors characteristic of high quality brecciated jasper. The more simple bracelet and earrings create a coordinated look without taking away from the staring role of the pendant.
All in all, an excellent kick off for us, and a lot of fun for our guests. We look forward to our next event as we continue with our plans to unfold Lunar Blue Designs on Etsy, in social media outlets, at workshops, and more parties!
