You must have seen me getting excited all over our social media about our new bindi collection. I know this is going on for the last 4 months, so let me explain the story behind all this.
Last summer, I got a message from the lovely Valentin van Porcelain - we talked about a collaboration and later on, he mentioned that there is a gap in the market and that he wishes I would make bindis. I found the idea appealing so I immediately started searching for the right crystals and other pieces I could use to make them, as well as what to use as a backing piece. I was really excited and ordered the necessary materials and started experimenting as soon as I got them in my hands.
I made 8 designs in 2 days - I was very inspired so they all came out naturally. I sent some to Valentin to test them because this was a new field for me and I didn't exactly know the technical issues. Besides some minor problems (that I fixed on the other designs), everything worked great! Valentin started getting the word out about my bindis via his social media and also, he used them in the amazing photoshoots he did with Simone Richter. I couldn't be more happy!
From the time I finished the designs until two weeks ago, my personal life was overloaded with uni exams (my final!) and so much stress because of that. Therefore, I wasn't able to work on the bindi collection, take photos or make new designs. Time seemed to pass so quickly and I was always left behind with more stuff needed to be done.
Now that I am ready to take photos and list them on my shop, our camera all of a sudden had shutter failure and needs lots of money to be fixed. Ugh. We will send it to customer service next week but I guess for another 2 weeks we won't be able to show you all the goodness we've made.
So far, we've got an amazing response from people and they want to see more of our bindis ^_^ I hope you will like it too and please, feel free to send us your feedback because this is all so new to us!
