Its been an exciting 5 years full of fun times, late nights and creating a mini empire in the back garden!
We have worked through 2 babies, a #BASatical around the world and a full on house renovation. Through it all, we have emerged with the strongest team. Working with your sister isn’t so bad after all…. we even wrote a blog about that too ~ read here!
We started this venture from the kitchen table, as many small businesses do, and have slowly grown and moved to the end of the garden….. as a lot of small businesses also do! We have gone from just the 2 of us to now having a team of 6 people, and that doesn’t even include the extended team players like the accountant/ IT help and our marketing and graphic support team .
We have been on photography courses, social media training courses and also signed up to learn silver smithing all in the name of our art. We have made ourselves poor in order to buy that beautiful bead, and have put ourselves out there and met a huge amount of interesting people. Its impressive to see everyone doing their bit, and an even more amazing thing that the community is so supportive in all that we do.
We went from one small collection to now having 5 main collections, monthly workshops, and a collaboration list that has enabled us to diversify into different areas and offer bigger and better designs. Its been a great 5 years so far, so we thought it would be fun to look back at the BAS archives and look at our campaigns of the past. Hope you like going down memory lane, and here’s to another 5 years!
