I am sad to announce that when I'm done writing this blog post, I'm going to head over to Etsy and close up Honey Bijou for good. Kim and I have had tons of fun these last few years, creating, sharing, and making friends. However, keeping the shop alive has proved to be much more work than it's worth, and the market for authentic handmade goods doesn't seem to be improving.
I will continue offering custom jewelry as a commissioned service, though my website, and Kim and I both will continue sharing our creative endeavors online. Please keep in touch with us via the following links:

Thank you everyone for sharing this adventure with us!
