My Jewellery is designed to make you look and feel fabulous!!
Hello I am Lou and I am the owner of Dragonfly Handcrafted Designs.
Dragonfly Handcrafted Designs was born in 2009 when I was undergoing IVF treatment and it was a means to channel the stress of the fertility treatment I had to endure.
I started by reading up how to bead through specific books and through magazines and once I had mastered the basics I realised that I was actually quite good at it. The design element of making jewellery made me feel in control at a very chaotic time and it helped me to release any emotional stress that was experiencing.
I then decided I might like to sell my designs and set up Home Based Jewellery Parties for friends and family. These went really well and I saw that there was a market for this type of handmade product.
We were successful with our IVF Treatment and we went on to have two beautiful precious daughters so the jewellery making took a back seat for 7 years until I was ready to start making again.
After being made redundant from my employed role I decided to take the bull by the horns and set up selling online as parties seemed to being phased out.
The rest is history...….I have now been creating and selling my designs for the last 3 years and the business is going from strength to strength.
Always use natural light to take photographs of your products so that when a customer receives them they look and are exactly as pictured.
