About The Founder

I have always been a creative individual and enjoyed making things with card, paper and other craft materials when I was younger. As I grew older, my creative side was buried by the busy-ness of wanting to pursue a corporate career while handling the other responsibilities that came with becoming an adult!

A few years later a turn of events led me to explore this side again as a means of focus and therapy. It was then that rediscovered my passion through creativity and eventually setup my own jewellery making business. While doing this, I setup small jewellery making workshops in my studio space in order to have another stream of income and in short, this is how The Bejewelled Academy was born!

The journey to setting up this business has been both challenging and exciting. I have learnt so much, that I have documented some of my experiences in an e-book. I have truly come to value the beauty of creating something from nothing. This is also why I am so passionate about our clubs and workshops and constantly expanding and developing the learning experiences that are offered through The Bejewelled Academy.
