For many, their business is a creative outlet. They feel a sense of joy in using their hands to create and express themselves. This was true for Kelly from Iron Butterfly Jewellery. She described her work as a hobby but if you stood there and looked at the beautiful pieces she creates, you would see, as I did, that it is much more than that. What makes her work a passion and not simply a means to money is that she genuinely loves to see people wearing her jewellery and is overjoyed to hear the stories of reactions people have when her jewellery is gifted. “I do it because I love it”.
Mary had so much wisdom to share with me as I chatted with her, I’ll let her finish this blog with her closing remarks - “You have to care about what you’re doing with your life, so that you can help others. It does you good to do something good for someone else”.
Amen Mary, Amen.
