Each year we think has always gone faster than the last...
a lot can happen in a year and now we reach the beginning of a new one and I, like so many of you, am reflecting on the people, events, experiences and learnings, feeling more equipped to make the most of 2020 and grateful for everything in 2019 – the good and the bad.
Palas is a business that I created many years ago and who's success is very much attributed to my dedicated and hard working team at head office Sophia, Belinda and Courtney and our wholesale agents Edwina, Lisa, Sheridan, Jane and Cassandra who look after our beautiful national stockists. Without the incredible skills of our artisans in Indonesia this brand would simply not exist.
I design the Palas collection in Australia and, more recently, with the assistance of Courtney which is really exciting. Our silversmiths turn our drawings into jewellery, they hand carve the designs into wax and create masters from which all of the production is based. There are so many touch points in the process from design, sampling and making to when a Palas piece finds a place in your life.
"When buying from a small business, you're buying more than just an object. You're buying hundreds of hours of ideas and experimentation. You are buying days, weeks and months of planning and moments of pure joy. You aren't just buying a thing. You are buying a piece of heart. Part of a soul, a moment of someone's life. Most importantly, you are buying the maker more time to do something they love."
Thank you for choosing to buy Palas for yourself or as a gift this past year from one of our 100's of retail stockists across Australia and on-line we really do value every customer and your many repeat purchases as you help us to grow and touch the hearts of so many throughout the world with jewellery that has true meaning to 'collect, inspire and share'.
Light and love,
