Hey you! Things are about to get wild, but first things first. We would love to welcome you - or as they would say in Bali ‘selamat datang’ - to our very own blog: 'Wild World'.
There are so many things that we would like to share with you other than shiny ear candy, lovely arm parties and crazy ring stacking. We want to communicate with you and with this blog we can do just that. It’s an opportunity to receive feedback, start conversations with you and also tell you more about our vision, values and inspirations. If you’re wondering what to expect, keep reading!
A BIT OF ENTERTAINMENTWhile we were busy making you happy with jewelry, we’ve noticed you were missing some spice on our website. A bit of entertainment. Well to be honest, we couldn’t agree more, so we are very happy that our first blog sees the light of day. During this summer we’ve been working hard and with some awesome results, since you’re reading our first ever blog post right now.
FROM SUSTAINABILITY TO TRAVELTALKThe topics we will be discussing, extend beyond the world of jewelry. Obviously, we can’t wait to give you the latest updates and trends, handover the best tips & tricks for your jewelry and to provide style advice to make you shine. And we will. But also, expect interviews with independent (girl)bosses, interesting discussions about sustainability & some travel talk. Who knows, we might come up with some pretty smooth Spotify-playlists to listen to in the background…
This blog is for everyone who loves jewelry, to have fun, to relax, to live life on the wild side and to travel. For everybody who enjoys to learn more about sustainability, the problems we face in this consumption society and how we want to contribute as a brand.
Whoops, maybe you don't know us yet?
It would be a bit impolite not to introduce ourselves properly, wouldn’t it? So for those who don’t know the whole story behind the brand, here’s the short version.
OUR SHORT STORYWe did not come to where we are now without hard work and a lot of creative and dedicated minds. In 2016 it was just our founder, Leanne Jacometti, surfing solo. It was during one of her holidays in Bali when this jewelry-freak visited a local craftsman and had two rings designed for herself.
Back in Holland, her friends and family were quite enthusiastic about the designs and asked her to make a few rings for them as well. One thing led to another and on the next holiday Leanne decided to design a small handmade collection which was also used for approaching the first wholesalers. The first wholesaler in 2016 was T.I.T.S Amsterdam and from there on Wildthings Collectables started growing. After a while it was not just retailers selling our jewelry: we also launched the webshop.
Fast forward to four and a half years later, we are now working on the brand with seven jewelry freaks and we opened our very own Bali flagship store. Right now Wildthings Collectables is being sold worldwide, we launch two collections per year and have a few big surprises coming up for you!
TELL US WHAT YOU'RE LONGING FORWe would love to hear from you on all the subjects that are about to be addressed. How do you feel about a topic, what’s your biggest inspiration, what is your go to jewelry hack? Tell us all about it.
LIKE WE'VE MENTIONED BEFORE: IT'S A TWO WAY STREET BABY.
WHAT IS THE CURRENT SITUATION IN BALI; THE BIRTHPLACE OF OUR JEWELRY?
Our next blog about why we produce our jewelry under the pretty palm trees of Bali and a good insight about the current situation there will go live tomorrow.
I’m crazy about your new project Wildthings! Can’t wait to read more posts about all the cool topics!
