Two years in and going strong
I launched my business to bring happiness and beauty to others through sustainable, handcrafted jewelry inspired by nature. Thank you to those who believed in me from the get-go (you know who you are), who embraced my creations, and helped me get my feet on the ground. Two years later, I can confidently say we’re off and running. Yay!
Shop KMJ in 25 store locations
You can now find Kate Maller Jewelry in stores on the east coast and in cities across the northeast, south, central and western U.S, including our first museum shop at the Institute of Contemporary Art in Boston. Happy to report that the list of store locations grows longer every month. Check here for a store location near you!
New studio space + 2 new people
Last fall we moved our studio to a new location not far from the old space. The new studio is bigger, with great light, and more work areas. It's better organized, and the layout is more efficient. There’s room for our dogs to hang with us, and we’re a two-minute walk from many lovely shops + restaurants.
Getting into more stores combined with the overwhelming success I began having at high-end retail art shows made it abundantly clear, last year, that I needed help with certain aspects of the business. I’ve now added a part-time assistant to help with prep + production work, and order fulfillment. I continue to design all collections and OOAK pieces, and am still hands on in most of the production. Additionally, we recently signed on to work with a jewelry representative, who will be taking over many of our sales efforts and outreach.
We continue to be amazed by our wonderful clients. We know that our best referrals come from happy customers. Thank you for telling friends and family members about us, and for your repeat orders. It speaks volumes, and we’re mighty grateful. It goes without saying, but I’m saying it anyway: we wouldn’t be celebrating our second birthday without you!
Stay tuned...exciting things to come
We look forward to continue to grow Kate Maller Jewelry organically. We can't wait to see what the road ahead holds, and we are grateful every day to enjoy the journey. This year you can look forward to new stores, more events, a new website, and more OOAK designs than ever before!! Stay tuned next week, our next blog post will feature the inspiration behind our new spring line: The Radiance Collection, which launches online this weekend!! Woohoo :)
