Beyond the challenges of the past three years, 2022 has been an exciting year for Bijourocks by Reine Krief. Our focus was on creating one-of-a-kind, unique pieces using semi-precious stones and high-end craftsmanship, including hand-knotted jewelry using silk cord and incorporating vintage pieces. Each unique piece was either customized for a discerning customer or created for a collection.
One of the highlights of the year was to be the recipient of the 2022 Best of Solana Beach Award in the Jewelry Store category by the Solana Beach Award Program. Another highlight was participating in several craft fairs and events, where we had the opportunity to showcase our pieces and connect with new customers. We received positive feedback from our customers who appreciated the attention to detail and care that goes into the creation of each piece. We also introduced a jewelry repair service that our customers seem to appreciate and utilize.
Looking ahead, we are excited to continue creating new, unique pieces and experimenting with different materials and techniques. We are also planning to participate in more events and pop-up shops and invite new vendors to our events to connect with more customers who appreciate handcrafted, high-quality jewelry and accessories. We’ are looking forward to another year of creating beautiful, one-of-a-kind pieces that our customers will treasure for years to come.
In addition to our focus on handcrafted jewelry, last year we also introduced a new collection of leather handbags, made in Italy. These handbags are crafted from the finest Italian leather and feature unique designs and details that set them apart from mass-produced bags.
Our customers have been thrilled with the quality and craftsmanship of these handbags, which have quickly become one of our top-selling items. We're excited to continue expanding this collection and to offer more styles and colors in the coming year. The leather handbags are perfect to complement our jewelry and to offer a complete well rounded look to our customers.
We are looking forward to another year of creating beautiful, one-of-a-kind pieces, whether it's handcrafted jewelry or leather handbags, all made with the highest quality materials and craftsmanship. We are also proud to offer our customers a unique and special shopping experience whether it is online or in our shop in Solana Beach where you will find our unique designs, handcrafted in California and Italy as well as unique items and accessories from around the world.
