The machines are warmed up, the post has been collected and the coffee pot topped up - today we're back in the Studio after a well deserved Christmas break.

Christmas 2014 was certainly the busiest on record for HoH, but a great challenge for our Design team and we enjoyed every minute of it.  Christmas generally starts in September for us as the orders start to flood in and we get all the handprinting kits dispatched.  This year we dispatched over 4000 handprint kits over Christmas alone.

Preparing handprinting kits for dispatch

For the first time in 5 years, our handprint heart charms took the 'Most ordered product' crown from our handprint charm beads which are compatible with Pandora bracelets.

These sterling silver heart charms are a great staple charm and are great as you can easily add more charms to a necklace as your family grows.  We can even engrave a message or date on the reverse of the heart charm.

Whilst our Designers got to work designing lots of fingerprint cufflinks, footprint charms and handprint necklaces, our packing team had the job of gift wrapping and dispatching all the wonderful gifts.  As all of our handprint and footprint jewellery is hand-finished, there were some very sore fingers in the Studio.

Finished orders all parcelled and ready to go!

One of the biggest parcels to leave the Studio was our Facebook competition winner who won a massive £595 to spend on Handprint Jewellery products for Christmas.  It's always worth following us on our Facebook Page!

Once all of the orders were dispatched, it was time to relax and enjoy a takeaway Christmas Lunch and open the presents under the HoH tree.

We have been so lucky to be welcomed wholeheartadly into our new premises which we moved into in June.  This has been a great move for us and we have made some great new friends.
