Halloween

Did you see our hair raising competition on social media? It gave our followers a chance to win an Allumette bell necklace! The competition proved to be very challenging with many people guessing very low, but our closest guess and winner was Sarah McDonnell who guessed 1400.

The final result was 1589! A lot more than it looks!

An evening with Mishcon De Reya

On Thursday 21st April, Allumer were thrilled to be invited to the home of Mishcon De Reya for an evening of champagne, canapés, networking and selling.

The evening was full of many luxury brands showing some of the products and services they had to offer. Allumer had an eye-catching stand displaying our collections. Our Allumette bells definitely caught the eyes of many on the night.

The Allumer team had a very successful night where we were able to showcase the Allumer collections and create some buzz around our jewellery.

It was so great to be a part of such a lovely evening! Thank you Mishcon De Reya.

INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S DAY

womensday3

Tuesday 8th March is International Women’s Day!

This years theme is #PledgeForParity. A worldwide movement that encourages men and women to take action so we can achieve gender parity. The idea of the campaign is for people to make their pledge on the International Women’s Day website and spread the word by sharing on social media with a #PledgeForParity Selfie card. You can also set up a campaign at work or schools to get everybody involved and share your pledges online.

The International Women’s Day website allows you to make a Pledge for Parity and gives ways you can carry out your pledge. So head over to http://www.internationalwomensday.com/Pledge and take action by pledging your support, whether it’s to ‘help women achieve their ambitions’ or to ‘call for gender-balanced leadership’.

Show your support by wearing one of our Purple Allumette Bell Necklaces, £24 at http://www.allumer.co.uk/shop/allumette/bell-necklace/

Not only did we design a sculpture for the ME Hotel (created with 105 Allumette Bell Necklaces, check it out above!) which has already amassed a lot of interest, but we also held a live photo shoot at the hotels Radio Rooftop bar. With an amazing view overlooking London, it was definitely not a difficult work environment! Our photographer, Stefan Sieler, was a dream to work with as were our amazing models Sophie Fraser-Smith and Polina Logvin. We’ve made a sneak peak video of the shoot with exclusive behind-the-scenes footage, keep an eye out for the final images! Until next time LFW!

Happy Valentines!

FINDAHEART banner

We’ve had a lot of love from our customers this February thanks to our Valentines competition!

Running on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter, our followers had to simply snap a heart, be it obvious or obscure, and send it our way with the tag #FindAHeart. The response we had was great and we had so many amazing images to choose from that we put our favourites into a hat and got the cats to choose! Our winner, Asima Hafesji, really captured the spirit of the competition and managed to find a heart in the simplest of places – road tarmac!
