Our Mission

 

So, as you know we’re all about empowering women here at Beck & Boosh. Just check out our Mission Statement:

Our Mission is to celebrate and decorate the real modern woman.
Each piece is created to enhance and compliment YOU and your unique style.
To keep you feeling confident for whatever the world throws at you.

 Pretty deep, eh? Well we mean it. Decorating you in fabulous jewels is the easy part, but how could we possibly celebrate every one of you in your diverse and powerful feminine glory? It’s a big  job but we’re committed to it. It’s our mission. Picture us in super badass matching black secret agent outfits complete with Beck & Boosh accessories scaling walls and fighting….well, anything that gets in the way of gals feeling great about themselves.

What’s your Mission Statement? Words of wisdom you live by?  How do you define today’s modern woman?  These ladies have some great things to say….

Local Gems Part 2: Colchester County Edition

Colchester County is an incredible place to live. There are so many great places to see and visit. It is here that Beck & Boosh began and where our roots will always remain! In our second edition to “Local Gems” we are sharing our love of a few of the amazing spots around Colchester County.

1) Masstown Market: Masstown Market has truly grown to be a huge provincial landmark and an important part of Colchester County! It recently won the top family destination in West Colchester. We are so lucky that it’s just down the road. You can get all your groceries with the freshest produce, grab some fresh baked goods, stop at the restaurant or the Fish Boat in the Summer (try the sea food chowder, it’s SO good!) browse the unique gift shop (they have a little of every thing!) and end your trip with some delicious ice cream! It’s truly a staple and a spot you HAVE to check out! Oh, and did we mention they sell our HOME shirts?!

masstownmarket2

Masstown Market has the best and most unique gift shop! They are constantly updating it per trends & season! They help support local businesses, by carrying local products, like our HOME & PROUD shirts!

2) Sugar Moon Farm: Sugar Moon Farm is a maple farm & also a restaurant! It’s open year round & a great spot to go with the family and friends for the day! They offer a delicious breakfast served all day (pancakes with pure maple syrup – need I say more?), sugar camp tours, hiking trails, and also private parties and seasonal Chef’s Nights! It’s quite the experience and we highly recommend checking it out!

3) The Nook & Cranny: The Nook & Cranny is a great spot where you can go and eat a great meal with local ingredients. They focus on local producers and local Maritime Craft Beers! They recently announced that they will becoming a brew pub as well! Also with the warmer weather, they have a huge outdoor patio that you can sit on and enjoy your meal!

5) Truro Farmers Market: The Truro Farmer’s Market is officially open for the season and we couldn’t be more excited!

Collab with Wild Rosebuds & Boho and Braids

Recently we collaborated with two amazing Bloggers: Wild Rosebuds & Boho and Braids. We wanted to show you how each of these lovely ladies styled their Beck & Boosh Crumpled Dangle Earrings & Statement Fringe Necklace in their own way. They both took the time to share what inspired the outfits they chose to feature with the jewels:

Boho and Braids: “This outfit was completely inspired by my gorgeous Beck & Boosh jewellery. The fringe from the necklace gives off a bohemian vibe, therefore, I knew I wanted to go a little more boho with my look. The turtleneck and the hat add the ideal touch and the solid color of the turtleneck lets the necklace stand out on its own. The earrings screamed to be paired with a hat, that way they wouldn’t be hidden behind my hair. The crumpled dangle earrings and the statement fringe necklace are the perfect add-on to any boho look!”

boho3

We adore how Sarah from Boho and Braids paired the Beck & Boosh Fringe Necklace against this beautiful sweater. It really makes it pop & is oh so boho chic!

Make an amazing statement like Boho & Braids did by pairing the Beck & Boosh Crumple Dangle Earrings with a fashionable hat!

You can check out the Boho & Braids Blog Post HERE

Wild Rosebuds: “When I see fringe, I automatically think of the 70’s and fringe everything. That’s why when I saw the Beck and Boosh fringe necklace, it inspired me to put a 70’s twist on it. To make the outfit, I paired it with a batwing turtleneck sweater that also rocked the same vibe in my signature white (always matches gold perfectly) and made the look more modern with the most amazing pair of ripped 7 For All Mankind skinnies. The look was comfortable but if you threw on a pair of heels, it would be perfect for a date night.”

Here at Beck & Boosh we love a good pair of distressed jeans with a chunky sweater. Katie from Wild Rosebuds embodies this awesome look completely!

We love how the Statement Gold Fringe Necklace pops against Katie’s beige sweater!

Hong Kong: Our Buying Journey

Image

In October 2014, I mentioned to Beck that we should attend a jewelry show in Hong Kong, instead of the planned show in India. Without one second of hesitation, Beck was on board and we began preparing. The months flew by and before we knew it, we were planning outfits, preparing new designs and getting ready for our journey! We were excited to meet new companies, expand our resources beyond India and discover the upcoming trends. The show hosts some of the best jewelry companies around Asia and is an amazing opportunity to see designs from Thailand, Philippines, Korea and China. Beck flew to Hong Kong from Canada, with a close friend of ours and I (Boosh), flew up from Australia, where I had been vacationing with my family. It was so exciting to meet up there and fulfill a dream of ours to attend such a huge international show together!

A large part of attending an international fair is connecting and beginning a relationship with suppliers. The relationship is extremely important and that is why attending the show and meeting the companies in person is vital for success. We learn about the facilities, the production process, the staff, and materials used in production during our interaction with the various companies.
