My Dear Friends,
The global pandemic has brought travel to a halt. Whereas I used to travel to the US about once a month to visit my good friends on QVC, it's been nearly a year since I've been out of Israel. As an Israeli-based, artisan jewelry company, we've been blessed to have our US-based community members visit us in our studio. But with the restrictions on international travel, the summer months were very quiet.
We Had a Visitor in the Studio Today!
So it was a great surprise and honor to meet Ruth S. in our studio today! Ruth moved to Israel, about 2 years ago, from the East Coast. She has been a fan of the Or Paz Collection for over 10 years! In fact, she was already bedecked in our Spinner Ring when she arrived!
How Did She Find Us?
Last month, a small Facebook Group was opened to encourage purchases from small, local business as a way to help support and promote the Israeli economy. Ruth inquired in the group, "I wonder if the Or Paz Collection, from Israel, is available to be purchased locally?" A member of our team saw the post and quickly responded to Ruth, letting her know that YES, she can make a local purchase from our collection! Excitedly Ruth made her first (and now second) order from us!! And instead of having her purchases shipped to her home, she asked to pick it up from our studio in Ra'anana. Upon arrival, we brought her up to our studio and gave her a tour!
What Did She Buy?
Ruth has a sentimental connection to roses, she mentioned that her mom (who passed away about 13 years ago) would have been celebrating her 97th birthday yesterday. In her memory, Ruth purchased our ROSE SPIGA BRACELET and the co-ordinating RING. Ruth also is "stacking in style" with some great stretch bracelets. But I think the item that Ruth loved the most, was the Personalized Bar Necklace she purchased with her name engraved. Ruth chose to engrave her name in Hebrew, and for me, it was so nice to see as my mom and Ruth share their namesakes! Did you know: our personalized collection is now 20% off, so now's the time to purchase YOUR personalized treasure!
I know that the pandemic is keeping everyone close to home, but I'm hopeful that sometime in the near future, we will be able to travel, we will have opportunities to socialize and YOU will have the chance to come visit me in Israel! The door is open!
