I’ve officially hired an intern! her name is jean, she’s a journalism major and she’ll be the slaving away doing my work while I drink pina coladas all day. a few hours after we met she had already convinced buzz to feature bumblesea. I was amazed at how many people applied for the internship but I’m sure I made the right choice.

I know I’ve been talking about this forever but I’m finally done taking better photos of the jewelry. I’m in the editing/finishing stage right now and I’m pretty happy with the results. the hatched necklace and a few other new designs will be added to the site in the update as well.

some plans are in the works to make recurring (possibly weekly?) blog posts about DIY projects. I am tired of the majority of the content on here being shameless plugs for bumblesea. I’m also compiling a list of all the talented artists and designers I’ve met/discovered in the independent and handmade community to be featured here. if you want to be featured you can always email me to be considered.

there are a few other interviews being arranged in addition to buzz, I’m happy that everything is falling into place for the new line. I’ve picked the worst possible time to turn bumblesea into a luxury brand but I’m feeling more comfortable with it as I go on.
