Hello everyone, I am so sorry my "Love Irish Crafts" post is so late this week. Not my usual style I know but yesterday I finished up my job ( my full time one) and to be honest I just wanted to relax last night and today. Plus, it was a pretty spectacular day today so who wants to be inside on a computer. I'm going to be starting another job soon which I'm really looking forward to but as many of you know, my blog is my serious passion when my time is my own. So, don't worry- I'll still be blogging away. This week I wanted to introduce you to Laragh OBrien who has the company Noosa Jewellery.
Laragh started Noosa Jewellery just over a year ago in March 2010. It's fun and playful costume jewellery which she sources the accessories from both Ireland and the UK. She then puts them together into inventive pieces that will brighten up any outfit.
When she got going, a friend suggested she tried selling through jewellery parties. The first party she hosted at home and the business then grew from there. Of course Facebook has helped her tremendously as well and now she not only sells on FB but also she can book parties through her page too.
Here's Laragh at a recent show. I asked Laragh about what inspires her and she told me it is her love of all things girly. "Every girls dreams of having the latest trends in jewellery. My aim at Noosa is for every girl to achieve the look of their favourite celebrity. I love sourcing our products...checking out what's new on the catwalk each season, looking at all the latest magazines to see who's wearing what and then bringing it to my customers the best way that I know how.
Do be sure to check out her website and LIKE her Facebook Page. I hope you all have a very Happy Easter tomorrow.
Next post will be on Tuesday - going to enjoy the long weekend.
