Who inspired you to start your business?
I started my business because making jewellery & accessories has been a passion of mine all of my life. I used to make jewellery in my early 20's for friends and family as a hobby but never took it any further until now. The seed of an idea to make a business out of it was planted by my daughter about two years ago and so The Earth Faeries hair jewellery was born. Soon after opening it I became a vegan and re-branded. I soon discovered that I couldn't find any jewellery or hair accessories for myself that were cruelty free so I decided to source out materials that were so I could use them and offer them to my customers too.
What do you love most about what you do?
What I love most about what I do is that I get to work in my garden being inspired by the flowers and I get to trek through forests, woods and streams to find props to use in my pictures. I also receive videos of my clients opening their products and get to see their faces of delight when my customers receive them. That makes it all so worth while and gives me lots of satisfaction knowing that people love and appreciate what I have made them. I also love learning about photography as I knew nothing about it until I opened this venture up. Every day I am learning more about it and often grab my camera and go out for hikes to take pictures of the Welsh countryside. I often use the pictures to put on my blog and website to enhance my readers experience. I also love that I can wear beautiful feminine accessories that are kind to our fellow animals too.
Where is your business based?
I work from my own house in rural Wales up in the rolling hills and from my own dining room table. All of my products are made in a smoke free environment too so you are guaranteed to receive your gifts smelling fresh.
What makes your business unique?
I practice the Japanese ways. They believe that the energy from what we talk about and think about goes into our creative projects. This means that only pure love goes into my products. I do this through surrounding my products with quartz crystals and prosperity mantras are recited over them before dispatch. This imbues the products with positive energy that radiates out in your venue, home and life.
Where do you get your inspiration from?
My inspiration comes from every where and every one; what friends are wearing, pictures in magazines, the internet and nature. I collect all of my pictures and put them on mood boards so I am constantly inspired. I sketch some of the designs before I make them so I can get a feel of what they are going to look like when I have created them. My designs are of my own creation and most of them have been sketched whilst I am sat on a log in my favorite forest.
I am also a published poet too and have been featured in several online and offline magazines. I adore positive poetry and I am glad that I get to incorporate it into some of the products that I make as it adds that personal touch for my clients.
What three words describe your business?
These three words describe my products - Eco-friendly, vegan, unique, as I make handmade flower hair accessories and table decorations that are all different as no two roses are ever the same. Thus the flowers may look different to the ones featured in the pictures but all are as equally as beautiful and you can be assured you are wearing something that no-one else is wearing.
What materials do you use to make your items?
I also use Swarovski pearls & Swarovski crystals in my hair jewellery and use only the finest materials source out from supplier who have the Swarovski certificate of authentication. The flowers are all made with a soft flexible air dry clay that feels soft, light weight, flexible to the touch and comfortable to wear. All of my products are cruelty free and my packaging is recycled. Any tissue paper I use is also recycled and acid free. Any glitters that are used to enhance the flowers are all biodegradable and compo-stable too as we at the Earth Faeries love to be kind to the earth we live on.
Who else contributes to your business?
I have two pets a handsome cat & charming dog who are my best friends. They both come for walks with me in the delightful Welsh countryside and watch with curiosity as I collect props such as twigs for my pictures. They always add a smile to my day which I infuse into the products I make.
What is your mission?
My mission is to create and offer great quality affordable unique products that you will love whilst being kind to the animals and earth too.
