As we approach the end of August, we're all about Christmas already! We think Christmas, we plan Christmas, we pitch Christmas - in other words, we love Christmas (Is it too early to put up the tree yet?) And while the festivities are technically still a few months away, we sat down with Ros, founder and creative director of handmade glass decoration brand Bethlehem Baubles to talk about the new Christmas Edition! Founded in the heart of the Holy Land, Ros put her body and soul to provide beautiful and handcrafted products reflecting the authentic spirit of Christmas in an age where production and commercialisation are always going faster. 

Ros, describe your products in 3 words.
Decorations, Handmade in Bethlehem.

How did you come up with the idea of Bethlehem Baubles, and how has the brand evolved since? 
It seemed obvious to provide an income for the local community by selling decorations where the Christmas story came from.

One thing you wished you’d known before starting your own brand.
How tricky it is to get a good story known.

What do you think is the most challenging part of doing your own PR?  
Keep trying - Don’t let silence from journalists put you off!
