I would like to thank the following people whom without, it would not have been possible…
Earth Addict (especially Karen Ter Morshuizen) for believing in my product and therefore believing in me…and the rest of the team for answering the endless amount of questions I had and all the emails I sent. I have learnt so much in the past two months!
Siya Phambili ‘ons gaan vorentoe’ Admelea Beaders. Siya Phambili is a Crags (Garden Route) based beading initiative. Empowering local women and encouraging sustainability one bead at a time. Without these precious souls (Adje and Lea in particular) I would have fallen far short of completing this order, they were heaven sent. Boxes and boxes of beads were delivered and yet there was an endless amount of positive attitudes, high spirits, enthusiasm and hard work…thank you! The future at Siya Phambili looks bright and I look forward to many more ventures alongside them. Read their full story here: http://www.cruisethecrags.co.za/cruise/conscience/siyaphambili.html
Kelvin Abbott, Knysna based committed designer and jeweller, for always being ready for anything and everything at short notice. For clearing his schedule to prioritise my requests and meeting nearly impossible deadlines.
West Jewel silver chain suppliers, Paul Worthington, for beyond impeccable service and delivery. Thank you for being as passionate about my product as I am, you have made me a client for life! Check them out here: www.westjewel.co.za.
Global Beads in Durbanville! Thank you for all the time spent on the phone and email making sure I got exactly what I wanted. Thank you for being passionate about your client and their needs, this no doubt, assures future support! Support them here: www.globalbeads.co.za.
Multi Cam for being the heroes of the day! A lazer cutting/water jet company that took on the challenge of solving the problem of producing 800 brass hearts…without them I would have been sawing hearts for the rest of my life and my career would have been long gone by then.
And now to thank the most important people in my life…my family, friends and the man that holds my heart. Without the support, love, encouragement and belief, this order would have been but an empty shell. Thank you for helping me colouring it in and giving it soul. Thank you for the endless hours that each and every one of you spent to help where you can. Thank you for being patient and sharing in my vision enabling me to meet the deadline. Thank you most of all for helping me reach my dreams: inspiring, giving hope and instilling passion in those around me one jewellery piece at a time.
Last but not least, thank you to all of those who support me, who buy my jewellery and believe in me and in my product. Thank you to those who wear it, you give each piece an authentic personality and voice.
