I used to repair broken jewellery for my mom and mother-in-law as a hobby. I love upcycling and reusing what I have at home so this really enabled me to try out something I really enjoy. During lockdown I was able to purchase various material and tap into market places via social media to buy beads at a very low cost.
Working from home during lockdown enabled me to use my spare time for creative breaks, to create my own happy space through a skill I never thought I had before! I now have my own big box of various equipment and beads to make earrings and necklaces.
I have gifted a few to my friends and family and am hoping that one day I can create my own product rage and start selling!
