At times of grief and loss, it is challenging to come up with just the right words to express sorrow to a loved one. Articulating how much you care can often feel clumsy or awkward.
This was my experience with my mother when I disclosed the challenges Nunn Design was facing during the initial days of the global pandemic in March, 2020.
When I described how sales had plummeted and the world was in total turmoil she proclaimed, “Companies like yours aren’t meant to last. People move on,” she said. “You need to move on too.”
I believe that my mother’s intention was to bring me comfort, to move me speedily through the grief process, and “on with life.” Being vulnerable or frail were seldom traits that she modeled for me.
In retrospect, the words that she shared were just what I needed to hear. I needed to make a choice to continue serving my customers in living creative lives. I needed to reaffirm Nunn Design’s mission of inspiring and nurturing creativity. I needed to empower others to build successful businesses so that together we can continue doing the creative work that I feel is essential to the world.
Art is essential.
Creativity is essential.
Makers are essential.
November Gratitude Gift
Starting today and continuing through the month of November we want to express our gratitude for your continued purchase of Nunn Design jewelry findings. We could not have navigated this year without your loyalty and support.
To show our gratitude we have collaborated with Brandi of Little Blue Bus Jewelry to create a limited-edition gratitude gift of three charms which we will include with a wholesale order of $100.00 dollars or more* – while they last. May this token of gratitude be a reminder that you are essential to us, your family, your community, and to the greater world.
We at Nunn Design chose to be a company that is built to last.
We choose to be essential.
* One set of limited-edition charms will be provided per customer and will not be sold or reproduced again.
