Good morning, SLA family. This coming week, we're preparing for June shop updates and I'll be returning from maternity leave to begin jewelry creation again. I wanted to post a reminder to you all regarding our limited design reservations and small batch jewelry creation.
In December, I posted an announcement to you all about how SLA will be reducing our design reservations and scaling back our work and this is my friendly reminder that we will be continuing in this manner. Every shop update, most of the messages we receive from people are expressing their disappointment or even hostile anger that their design of choice sold out and they didn't secure the style they wanted that month.
The work of SLA is produced by one designer - me. Our jewelry is made by hand and we consider our work to be artistry - not a product we can just hike up production for on demand like a commercial, machine made product. There is a cap and a limit to what these hands can do. I never expected SLA to gain the international recognition that it has and I am SO honored by everyone who would like to have their family memories preserved in my art. I thank you! I wish I could accommodate each and every one of you every month. However, it is my responsibility to place boundaries around a work load that I can realistically produce for you in a reasonable amount of time while also maintaining a balance for my own family and personal wellbeing. Mama to mama, I thank you for your empathy and understanding as I work to protect those healthy limits for the sake of my babies.
I have a few incredible pieces to introduce to you this week. They'll be the last new releases of 2017 - a "grande finale" of new work for the year, of sorts. I hope you love them, as a lot of heart and vision went into manifesting these designs! Thank you again for the honor of serving you with my art.
