"When I think back to 2015, when I started attending classes at SilverHub Jewellery School & Studios, making and selling my own jewellery never entered my mind. I was just looking for a hobby to keep me busy while I adjusted to being in early retirement following a career in corporate business. Then orders from family and friends to make handmade jewellery started to grow, so I decided in 2018 that the time was right to take a leap of faith and turn my silversmith hobby into a business. It was an incredible experience getting everything ready: creating a collection of jewellery, deciding on branding, packaging and setting up my website. All of this could not have happened without the support of my family and friends and their encouragement to get my business up and running. To my tutor Lisa Arnott at SilverHub: a huge thank you for teaching me everything I know. To quote my nephew:
'You never know what you can achieve until you give it a go.' "
