It’s been a few months since Wirework 2010 hit the shelves–and what a whirlwind it’s been. Most of you know that my Crystal Ring Byzantine bracelet was featured on the cover. Obviously, I was thrilled…and I also had no idea how many orders & emails it would bring. January was a busier month for us than December, which is pretty much unheard of in the retail world! The emails keep coming in, and I’m doing my best to answer each and every one of them. Still have a few more days worth of emails to catch up, but I will! It’s so exciting to hear how thrilled customers all over the world are with the magazine and the various projects:
” I have made every pattern in the book and am looking at every artist in the magazine and man do you guys rock!!! I particularly loved the crystal byzantine bracelet that you had in the issue I got. I have made several now and have friends asking for their own (heavenly) ”
” Your bracelet gave me so much inspiration! Thank you for your article and the wonderful instructions!”
“I made one of these, and I’ve gotten more compliments on it, than any other piece of jewelry I’ve made!”
On the other hand, though, I must admit it was frustrating for us—and for you too, I’m sure—that we kept running out of stock of our kits. We’ve worked hard to rope in some extra temporary help, and have some very promising candidates for permanent employment, so we should be back on track in no time!
If you haven’t yet gotten your copy of Wirework, do so soon, as the magazine will only be on sale through mid-April. (We’ve got a few copies for sale on the same page as the kits.) If you’ve already purchased a copy, please write a review so the editors know what you think. And now, I’m going to get back to answering emails!
