I am a mother of 2 boys whos passion is creating beautiful jewellery pieces for a modern woman.What Inspired You To Start Your Own Business and What does your journey look like?
My love for jewellery and the jewellery making process, is what truly inspired me.
I find absolute joy and purpose in sourcing beautiful gemstones for each unique piece; it makes it all that much more rewarding and worthwhile.What Does Your Business Offer, And What Makes It Unique?
VOA Fine Jewellery offers Australian made jewellery using high quality metals and unique, local gemstones. Buying local, supporting the local economy and local businesses is of the upmost importance to us, so all the suppliers we use are Australian based.
What does your Journey Look Like?
I started out in Retail and customer service industry and then got offered a job at one of the biggest wholesale companies in Australia supplying precious metals to jewellers.
After having 2 children, working full time deemed expensive with childcare fees and so I thought I would explore my passion and turn it into the business.Did You Always Think You'd Be Doing This?
I have always known that I want to be involved with jewellery and all things sparkle. I remember being a 4 year old kid and my grandma gave me a Ruby ring, sadly I lost it during a bike ride and I promised myself I will remake that piece one day when grow up and i did!
What Are The Most Rewarding And Challenging Parts Of Your Job And Owning Your Own Business?
The most rewarding parts of owning my own business is seeing the pieces come to life as well as the positive reviews. The feeling that a small piece of jewellery can mean the world to someone else is such a rewarding feeling.
The most challenging part as a small business owner is the funds to continue to grow it. It's also tricky to compete with brands that outsource and get them done overseas.
Whats Your End Goal? The Moment You'll Know You've Achieved What You Want To?
When I have my own little jewellery store, where I can serve coffee, tea and chat to people about jewellery all day long!
