Please meet Emma from Blossom Couture who is a newcomer to Williamstown Piccadilly Market on Sunday 9th November.
Loving this Neon set
Tell us a little about yourself?
I am a mum of 2 super cute girls (11 years and 2years), a wife of a super supportive husband, I live in Moama, NSW and I love creating
How did you come up with your business name?
A quick brainstorm, my love of florals and fashion came together to become Blossom Couture
Tell us how your product/range came about?
I started experimenting with jewellery making from the time my mum was making wooden bead necklaces in the 80s ...
Many ideas in between I finally found that my love of computers and using photoshop could combine to create awesome unique resin jewellery
How long have you been in business for?
I have been “officially” creating jewellery for 11 years now.
What inspires you?
Honestly everything, the whole process of my business, I am continually switched on looking for great colour combinations and patterns, I love the end result, I really love my customers feedback and their love of something that I have created, each sale online and at markets is exciting to me.
Have you always been ‘arty’ and/or ‘crafty’ or has it bloomed later in life?
Having grown up with a very clever mum who was always sewing, knitting, crafting I have searched my whole life for my passion and have trialled so many ideas but feel I have finally found my true passion and wish my beautiful mum was still here so I could share my successes with her.
What is something cool that most people wouldn’t know about you?
I grew up in the middle of nowhere on a cattle farm and then went to school in the middle of Toorak... two absolute extremes in my life make me feel I had the best of both worlds.
If money were no object what would be your dream destination right now?
Italy! Definitely my goal
What book can you read over and over again?
Considering I am up till the wee hours of the morning most nights pouring resin (as 2year olds and resin do not mix!) I unfortunately haven't read a whole in book in years and I used to love reading everything and anything! After the Christmas rush my goal is to go away for a whole weekend and read a really good book...I have heard "Gone Girl" should be on everyones reading list.
What is your favourite website(s) ?
Etsy and Pinterest, many hours lost on those sites!
Have you ever met anyone famous?
A few well know household names but no one that I would faint over, haha
