Happy New Year from Hilobeads!

A bit late, but better late than never I guess.

Some good news and some bad news: I just renewed the hilobeads.com domain for another 3 years - we're coming up on the 4 year anniversary. I haven't made up my mind yet whether to have a sale of any sort, and where, if.
I have new fresh water pearls but no pictures taken yet.
The bad news: I have to increase the price on drilled mgambo seeds, on Etsy only so far but that's because that's all I got around to yet. I may also have to increase the price on Job's Tears but that depends on how this year's harvest comes out. I sold close to 30 lbs last year and pretty much ran out.

In the ambivalent news (I have those too): the lilikoi picking season for production is over. I like the income but I need the time to pick Job's Tears now.
Clove seeds are again coming in (second harvest, for the first time). Picking 200 per day doesn't get all of them. I have some international orders still waiting but currently my day job takes all the energy I have.

And, having sold some jewelry again got me motivated to make some more (but again no pictures yet).

So that this post isn't completely without pictures, an Etsy treasury curated by redemptionart from Team Hilo Etsy:
