- What motivated you to start this business?
From a very young age I have loved producing creative works of functional art and I have always had a love for selling. I began producing souvenir clothing items for purchase in the year 2008 back in Dominica where I am from. I have continued to do so in St. Lucia for the past 2 years when I partnered with natural jewelry artisan Julian James and we opened the boutique “Natural Talentz Sewing & Craft” in 2017 upstairs the JQ Mall in Rodney Bay.

- Why should a customer/organization support your business?
My business offers customers unique products and services currently unavailable anywhere else. All our jewelry items allow customers- locals and tourists -alike to own a piece of St. Lucia in a fashionable form. Not only can they select from a wide range of unique designs, they are also able to speak to us concerning their ideas and have these incorporated in a custom made artisan piece thus creating the perfect gift. We also offer hypo-allergenic jewelry as we use surgical grade stainless steel findings (earring hooks, jump rings etc), & natural food coloring is used as dyes.
