COVID-19 Global Shipping Update April 10 2020

earth globe

Darklings! Hellaholics.com is open as usual but with precaution and shipping changes due to the now globally spread Corona, COVID-19 virus.

As of today 19 March 2020 we have new shipping restrictions. Parcels are now shipped twice weekly with restrictions (Edit: Update April 10, please see below)

We remain healthy and are working from home in isolation. Hellaholics is as you may know a Scandinavian brand and online store, independently owned and based in Gothenburg, Sweden. It is a two woman brand built with passion, hard work and a touch of magic. We are not a big company, there is no back-up and we lack the financial muscles that big cooperations have. Each order, no matter how big or small truly means a lot to us!

Your support, purchases and feedback is truly heart warming. It keeps us going in these sad very uncertain times. We are hoping to survive this as a company, to continue to provide you with glittery jewellery and are taking every precaution we can.

We are now walking to the studio and packing your orders – taking turns – not even meeting each other! (Hannah (owner) does the core part in packing so that Elina (employee) can remain safe at home).

We carefully wash our hands and use hand sanitizers, the studio is being cleaned and disinfected regularly. Incoming goods are disinfected upon arrival. Your parcels are delivered to the post office staff with no physical contact twice weekly.

Sadly we are currently unable to deliver to South and Middle America, Antarctica, Australia, most non EU European countries and most parts of Asia due to closed borders. The postal service can still provide shipping to the following countries:

All countries within the EU ( except Cyprus and Malta from April 10-2020)
Canada
Hong Kong
Iceland
Japan
Lichtenstein
Monaco
Norway
Russia
Switzerland
South Korea
Turkey
United Kingdom
Ukraine
USA

Please note that shipping times may be pro-longed as all freight system are strained with a lower work force combined with a heavy increase of people ordering delivery of all sorts to their homes and many flights are cancelled worldwide. Please be patient. There may also be national and regional rules and regulations in your area that affect deliveries.

Our thoughts go to all of you who are infected, to the ones that have lost loved ones, to the elderly and the ones with a low immune system, to all of you who work in public to keep society going and to the ones that do not have the privilege of safety in their own home.

With love and our deepest sympathies 😗

Brexit, Shipping?!

British babes! Brexit is here but regular shipping to the UK is still FREE of charge until 31st December 2020. Britain officially leaves the EU tomorrow on Friday 31st January 2020 but GOOD NEWS there will be transitional provisions for trade between the UK and the EU up until and including 31st December 2020!

This means that, throughout this transitional period, there will be no extra fees and custom costs for you if you are ordering from the United Kingdom.

We are sad to see you leave 😘

Winter Blues….


Nieves Ring Set

It’s that time of the year when the snow covers the streets, when the sun shines and when the temperature is way to cold for an evening walk. Ooh how I wish this was true!

Unfortunately  the only thing that reminds me of that it’s actually winter right now is the never ending darkness. The weather forecast for Gothenburg this week predicted rain all day, every day (not kidding). I’m okey with that.  As long as I get my cat cuddles, some extra sparkling bling on my fingers and hot coffee 🙂


World Tree Wire Amulet Necklace

It’s also that time of the year when most budgets are a little tight and everything feels quite boring. Luckily we have some budget friendly yet eye catching jewellery that hopefully will cheer you up during this dark months 🙂

Last Minute Gift Ideas ✨

Titanium Druzy Crescent Moon Necklace,

For some, christmas is the best time of the year. For others it can be very stressful or even painful. Maybe christmas has always given you anxiety?
Or maybe you just don’t like celebrating it.

For me, it’s all of that. I love spending time with my friends and family. At the same time I can get anxious about all of the expectations, what to buy, what to cook, what to wear etc.

It’s not always easy buying a gift to someone. Maybe these christmas gift ideas will help you find something.

My Journey

Wearing our clear crystal quartz pendant with a non-allergic stainless steel chain.

 

Hi! You may have seen my face (or my cats) on Hellaholics social media. I’m Elina, a Hellaholics employee, an inked metalhead, cat mama to Alice & Romeo, 29 years old and living in Gothenburg, Sweden with my fiancé.

I have decided to speak openly about my unorthodox professional journey in hope that in some small way it may help to lift the social stigma that surrounds anxiety and depression. I am the other half of the Hellaholics team and this is my story.

Empowering accessories: Know your power pin by Glitter Punk.

 

Chapter 1. Everything started back in 2013. I had been struggling for many years with anxiety and was on permanent sick leave. One day I heard about this small group, a group of people who all like me had been struggling in their lives and that met daily at a workshop to sew. I decided to try.

At first I was scared; I had never sewn in my life, I hadn’t worked for many years and my self-esteem was low. But I was curious and I had the most wonderful teacher who gave me so much support and love. At first, I started with just two hours work two times a week and for every month we slowly increased the time with one hour until it was four hours every day. It took me about 2 years to get there. Yes, you read that right. 2 years, step by step!

After a while I actually started to enjoy sewing!

Chapter 2. I’ve always loved the rock’n’roll style of the 1970s. The flared pants, the bold colours, the unisex looks, the platform boots and the big hair. I had been looking for those perfect pants for many years so I decided to challenge myself. I didn’t care that I’d only been sewing for a little while. I was stubborn. I learned how to make the “perfect” 70s pants with a little help from my teacher. It was still hard to ask for help. I’ve always been that type of person who wants to learn by myself. By practicing, making mistakes, doing it again, crying, laughing and starting over. I want to do it my way. After sewing over 100 pants, I finally felt quite happy.

Then came this new idea. I wanted to sew pants for other people to wear too so I started my own brand with self-made kimonos and flares. Stone Dust Clothing.  I was really happy until…. I started to want more. I was surprised of wanting more challenges. This was new for me, wanting something more.

Me back in 2017, wearing velvet flares and a kimono made by me.

 

I first heard about Hellaholics in 2016. I met Hannah (my mentor, boss and founder of Hella) through a mutual friend and it just “klicked”. Hellaholics was growing, she needed help and I needed a job. We share a love for pretty jewellery, have a similar taste in music and are both vegans.

At first I started as a trainee. I had to start slow, 3 hours a day, 5 days a week and with a lot of breaks. I had to listen to my body and not force myself to do anything. I had to learn everything from scratch. How to pack orders, how to receive deliveries, how to take pictures, how to edit, how to think, how to write. It was so many impression; sometimes it felt like my brain would explode. I was scared every minute that I was not good enough to work here but Hannah had a different perspective, she believed in me and guided me every step of the way.

Hellaholics custom made birch wood jewellery inspired by our Nordic pagan past. Designed in-house by me and Hannah as a team. Click the image to view the collection.

 

I could never ask for a better boss. Hannah has been a big support, always listening to me, telling me to take breaks or go home when she sees that it’s too much. She has helped me grow, become independent and to trust myself. She is not only my boss. She is also my friend. She takes great care of both me and our customers with attention to details, with love and pure passion!

I never thought I would end up here in life. In a small company, working with social media, design and photography and actually feeling proud and happy! I’m now working 6 hours a day and have become an employee. My journey at Hellaholics continues, the brand is growing and I’m growing. 

I’m still learning, still having anxiety but I feel confident. I know there will be darker days, days when I question myself and that to is OK! Life isn’t perfect, it can be painful, but also rewarding and beautiful!
