This was a new road for us, and we learned a lot in the process. We were lucky enough to find a fabulous local designer. Our very first design was what we now call the "Diamond" locket. We wanted to invoke the "V" of Vessel into it.
It was a lot of fun to come up with different ideas for locket designs, and sometimes challenging to come up with the proper marriage of function and design. For example, we wanted to do a butterfly locket, but eventually put it on the back-burner because we were having difficulty in designing a workable way for the locket to open. We'll keep working on that one. The possibilities for future locket introductions are almost limitless! That's pretty exciting - for us, and for you!
One of the things I like best about Vessel jewelry is that - because of the unique designs of the lockets - you will find that people will stop you to ask about your jewelry. Of course, they have no way of knowing when they stop you that there is so much more to the jewelry ... when they find out about the ScentSpheres, it usually just astounds them. The point is that they are first drawn to the attractiveness of the jewelry, and the fact that it is scented jewelry simply "seals the deal." What a great benefit for Vessel Stylists, to have a product that truly does sell itself. If you are a Vessel Stylist, I suggest you keep a good supply of business cards and Vessel information with you at all times!
We would also love to hear from you regarding what locket designs you would like to see us do in the future. Feel free to comment on this blog post, post on our Facebook page (www.facebook.com/vesselscentsofstyle), or drop us a note to firstname.lastname@example.org.
