Happy 9th Birthday B3!

You may have noticed that the logo in the upper left-hand corner of our website is looking a little extra “festive” today – that’s because it’s Blue Buddha’s 9th Birthday!  We are so excited to be celebrating 9 years.  We’ve come such a long way in that short time – growing from Rebeca working out of her spare bedroom to fill her handful of weekly orders to a team of 13 employees, supplying people in all 50 states and 40 countries with our top-quality chainmaille jewelry supplies.  Here’s a big thanks to B3’s customers, supporters, mentors, designers and employees for getting us this far and here’s to many, many, more!

Our jump rings surprised us with a party – complete with noisemakers, party hats and of course, cake!

Nom Nom Nom!  We love cake – a vanilla cake with strawberries (left) and a chocolate, chocolate, chocolate cake (right) – our jump rings know us so well!

We also wanted to share some very sweet birthday wishes we received from our community members on Facebook.  Thanks for all your kind words – we love you right back!
