Meet CAMpreneur SIDONIE OLORUNLERO of BIJOUX PARIDISE
Hello people..Being an accessories junkie, I am excited to present to you the lady behind the new jewelry brand. “BIJOUX PARADISE”. Meet CAMpreNeur, SIDONIE OLORUNLERO…Tell us about yourselfI am a married mum of an eight months old baby. When I went on maternity leave I was looking for something I could do for added income that I would enjoy and also be able to fit it around caring for my baby. I wanted it to be something creative. So I decided to embark on a journey learn the art of bead making. I invested in the materials and started teaching myself. With encouragement from friends and family I made my first few pieces and sold them successfully. So I started making jewelry for sale. The business is still relatively young but I can see the potential and the fact that it gives me a great work / life balance makes it all the more worthwhile. The story about your venture..why jewelry? I chose jewelry because it is a universal accessory. You can use itTo define your personality or just your outfit. One piece means different things to different people and to be honest I love a great piece of elegant craftsmanship. Your jewelry can make or break your outfit. What more does a woman need?I also offer a customising service I.e. If you see one of my pieces you like but want it in another colour, I can make it in your colour of choice and also to specific measurements if required. If you have a special occasion coming up and need accessories to match your outfit get in touch and let’s work together. How would you describe the “bijoux paradise” client? Our client is your everyday girl/ woman. We mainly make jewelry you can wear daily to work, school etc… Huge fashion pieces are not really my thing. I wanted a more practical approach to this. The fact that our prices are affordable also makes it a hit. Specialist bridal and bridesmaids pieces can be tailored to your outfit and colour theme. What are some of your challenges? My main challenge is finding clients and where to sell online and physically. As a MUMPRENEUR I don’t want a stall / shop premises because not only is this expensive it will mean not being there for my daughter which defeats the purpose. Being able to sell this online and advertising attracting the right clientele is...
