We’re already one month into 2016, with February just days away. Incredible how fast time flies when you’re having fun right? This blog post won’t really be about jewelry per se, but more about what’s been on my mind recently.
It’s tough remain inspired in a world where everyone is trying to come up with the next big thing. Especially now with social media, everything is so instantaneous and accessible, it can be pretty draining having to consistently come up with fresh content and stay up to date. I do think Instagram is an amazing tool to fill up on inspiration and what’s really great is that instant gratification you receive from followers. You know right away if people are feeling you or not, and that helps to shape your business accordingly.
However, it’s easy to also feel overwhelmed with all the imagery and products and ideas people are putting out there. It’s hard not to compare yourself when you see someone with a feed filled with impeccable images. Depending on your mood, it can either leave you feeling defeated or it can be the fuel to up your game and to try and do it as good, if not better than the rest.
I think the number one thing to remember is to just keep doing whatever it is you’re doing so long as it feels right. You may not have an expensive photographer or social media manager constantly updating your feed with stunning photographs, but if you have the right products, people won’t care about that stuff – they’ll like you regardless. Personally if I see a beautiful feed, I will like the picture, but if I’m not into what they’re selling, no amount of beautiful photography will change my mind.
Though we’ve updated our site and look throughout the years, MAVA is a brand that has remained consistent and true to itself despite the current trends. We were making skull and animal jewelry before it was trendy and we will continue to create pieces that we personally love, regardless of what is popular. We’re truly lucky because we make stuff that people from all around the world have responded to very positively. We truly love what we do and hope to do so for many many more years to come.
I think this year is all about being and staying inspired and remaining open to new ideas and possibilities. We want to remain true to our brand and our style, while implementing some fresh new designs for both men and women. We’re so excited about what this new year has to offer and we will keep you posted on what’s coming up for us this year.
Thanks for reading!
