I have always been a jewellery lover and before children enjoyed restoring vintage jewellery as a hobby and small business. When I became a mum I discovered that babies love jewellery too although not in the way I did! After losing a few pretty necklaces to my son's hercules strength I looked for baby proof jewellery online but at that time didn't find much in the UK that I liked. During breastfeeding, babywearing and teething troubles I realised that a baby proof necklace is useful bit of mum kit. Like many mums my pre baby clothes didn't fit and I found myself wearing mostly monochrome (accessorised with baby puke!). I started making necklaces for myself to brighten up my mum clothes and make me feel more like my old self. I began making them or friends and later opened Little Magpies on New Years eve 2014. Little Magpies is all about making mums feel good about themselves with stylish and functional jewellery and accessories. From day one it has been my goal to give a little back and Little Magpies now donates 10% of profits to PANDAS Foundation (Pre and Post Natal Depression Advice and Support) a charity supporting mums with PND.
Don’t try to do it all. If there are tasks you need help with get help. Outsource tasks you can’t do yourself or even better arrange a skill swap with another Mama in business.
There are elements of my business I should have outsourced sooner to enable me to grow the brand and this held me back until someone gave me this advice. I just wish I had realised it sooner!
