Where it all began..

Where it all began..

The story behind Steph Sells Seashells begins in the early 2000's. Hand beading and jewellery making has been a hobby of mine since the very young age of 7 years old. I was taught the craft of beading when holidaying on the south coast of New South Wales, in the small coastal town of Merimbula. Mixing my love of the beach, bohemian style and the craft of beading 'Steph Sells Seashells' was born into the brand into it is today.

A bit more background; beading has been a hobby of mine my whole life, I am a creative person, always have been and I have always wanted to make something that people would love to own. After working in the fashion retail space for most of my adult life and studying visual merchandising straight out of high school, I have developed an interest in business management and marketing. This interest got me thinking, I should start my own business! For years, I had toyed with the idea but a few factors like my financial situation, not being able to decide on a product to sell and my fear of failure kept me from fully committing to the idea. I was afraid to begin, because I was afraid to fail. So, why now you might ask? Well, why not!

Currently, the world has been turned upside down, not just my world, the whole world. Due to Covid-19, like a lot of people out there, I have found myself stood-down from my day job with no real idea of when I might be going back to work. Whilst the circumstances we're all in at the moment are certainly not ideal, this situation has given me the opportunity to dive right in and really give this side-hustle the attention I have always wanted to give it. I used to say I didn't have time to work on it, which to a degree is true, but I was also very indecisive on what I would sell. Steph Sells Seashells has been in the makings since March of 2016, but I let life get in the way of truly pushing full-steam-ahead; so now, with time on my side, I have boxed up my fear of failure and finally decided to give this business idea a red-hot-go!

Steph Sells Seashells has been created for the suburban girl who longs to be by the sea..

I hope you have enjoyed reading a little bit of background on where this all began. I'm not much of a writer, so if you made it this far, thank you!

Happy shopping beach babes!
- Love Steph
