Henryka Modelling Competition 2017 – where it all began!
At Henryka we recently hosted an incredibly successful modelling competition. Our aim was to give local women the chance to model our jewellery and feature in our advertising. Having first been inspired to find models after developing our new branding, we felt it was time for some fresh talent.
Our first step was to get the local community involved by reaching out to them, so we decided to run a competition on Facebook. The competition post encouraged local women to submit a photo of themselves in order to enter. Almost two hundred people commented on the post and over eighty people entered, this far exceeded any expectations we had! Having received all the entries it was now time to shortlist the candidates, a lengthy process. Through much deliberation we managed to narrow it down to the final six!
Goodbye Summer. Hello Autumn.
It’s hard to believe we’re half way through October already and certainly well into Autumn. Some of us will be sad to see the back of summer, but for the rest of us Autumn is one of the most beautiful and exciting seasons. With so many deep and wonderful textures and colours, we’re feeling particularly inspired this time of year! Think crisp falling leaves, cosy knitted jumpers and log wood fires – oh and hot soup with warm crusty bread of course!
This season has bought about many changes to Henryka. Locals are to see our store go from a pale duck egg blue, to a striking orange and black design. We’ve also continued this change with colourful new packaging and an all round new look. Our logo has also had a complete make over and we’ve really come together as a team and as a brand.
Of course, with such changes and inspiration comes new ideas, and new designs! We’ve been feeling particularly inspired by the rustic tones and hues Baltic Amber creates, the way it catches the light and radiates colour – the ideal stone for the season. It’s no secret that amber is one of our favourite materials to work with, and this season we’ve bought it back in a big way!
Let us re-introduce ourselves!
It really does give us great pleasure to announce the launch of our new blog to coincide with our brand new look! You’ve probably noticed that we’ve been making some pretty big changes here at Henryka – breathing life back into our brand! Our look may have changed, but we promise our customers can still rely on the same incredible quality and service they have come to expect from us. For those of you who are new to Henryka…welcome to our world, you’ve certainly joined us at the right time!
We continue to pride ourselves on personal touches, beautifully crafted jewellery and an exquisite expression of boho chic meets arts and crafts! Every piece we create is made with passion and we truly cherish each and every one of our customers. We want everyone to own a piece of Henryka – their own little piece of ‘extraordinary’!
