    RO's World

    An open letter to my #1 Wing Woman //

    Just over 4 years ago, I met a girl. A girl who was still at uni, still living at home with her parents, still in her teens (just). A few months later I employed her and she started doing a few admin tasks and helping out with a bit of customer service. A few months after that I realised how beautifully this girl wrote and how she had such a gorgeous talent for creative writing and so I gave her the task of writing the descriptive stories for our collections, our products and our social media campaigns. Over time, the girl took on more tasks and more responsibility within the business and even designed some jewellery that is now shipped around the world. She also moved out of home, she saved money, she made lots of new friends, she started designing her own jewellery, she travelled...lots...and even gained the courage to travel by herself to the other side of the world.

    That girl became such an important and very special part of the RO journey. There were laughs….so many laughs, there were tears. We picked each other up and encouraged each other when the other was down. There were TimTams, Iced Vovos, avocados, and so much Earl Grey tea.

    One day the girl and I had a real honest chat, and we both realised the girl was ready for her next exciting adventure. Sure it was a sad reality, but I had to look at it as an exciting opportunity for both of us. And so my friends...today is THAT day. The day that one chapter ends, and another one begins. I am so incredibly sad to say goodbye to my amazing wingwoman, but I am so proud of what she has achieved and how she’s grown over the past 4 years. I’m sure she probably can’t see it...but I certainly can.

    So to you, gorgeous Michaela, thank you for EVERYTHING. Thank you for being THE BEST RO SUPERSTAR EVER! I will miss your beaming smile walking into the office every working morning, I will miss our cups of tea and you automatically taking charge of the music selection. I will miss hearing about your crazy dress up parties and your wild weekends drinking G&T, wine and beer in one sitting without getting a hangover.

    And when you’re feeling down or need a little pep up...just remember all those HUNDREDS of Monday inspirational quotes that YOU wrote, and that inspired so many people!

    Keep dreaming, keep laughing, keep travelling, keep loving.

    Even after we say our goodbyes this afternoon….you’ll ALWAYS be a RO girl to me!

    Getting all sentimental...

    Once upon a time at the end of 2010, there was a girl who started a business.  Armed with a generous dose of nervous excitement she designed and then launched her first collection.  She didn't know what would sell and she didn't know who would buy, she just started.  She created quite a few different styles all slightly different, BUT all celebrating colour, texture and distinctive designs.  

    THIS was the necklace that quickly became the queen of the pack, the one that stood out and that everyone wanted.  This was the necklace that became a turning point. When that girl started to understand what her customers were wanting, she started to focus on designing fabulously fun resin pieces, bright colours and pieces of wearable art for women that were looking for something a little different.  

    Since that first collection that girl got married, had two babies, created 50 collections (OMG don't ask how many individual designs that is), won some pretty cool awards, launched into the USA, and made some AMAZING friendships.  

    That girl has certainly had ups and lots of downs but felt it was time to take a look back and see where she had come since that very first collection she designed back in 2010.  This reminded the girl, why she's continued to do what she does...because sometimes...she's forgets.  She remembered those beaming smiles on her customers faces when they told her the amazing compliments they received when wearing the fun jewels and how they made them feel so much more confident.   

    So my friends, this necklace is back for a limited time, for ONE very special reason. And that is to remind everyone to STOP every now and then for just a moment, BREATHE through the chaos of life, LOOK BACK to where you've been and what you've done, and whatever that looks like whether it was a hard stressful road, a joyous one or a crazy mix of both, you've made it HERE.  And you've done pretty alright!

    P.S. That clueless girl that started that business back in 2010...well that was me! Thanks for joining me on this wild ride, I've got so many more adventures planned for the next 6 years so I'd love you to stick around.  xxSkye
