Crafting Elegance: Kylie Marie of Lush Baubles
Today, we're delving into the world of Kylie Marie, the creative force behind Lush Baubles. With a keen eye for ethically sourced gemstones and a touch of gothic inspiration, Kylie has transformed her part-time hobby into a thriving business. Let's explore the journey of Lush Baubles and the artistry behind Kylie's unique creations.

From Hobby to Thriving Business

Lush Baubles sprouted its roots two decades ago, emerging as a small part-time venture during a transitional period in Kylie's life. What began as a creative outlet for a stay-at-home mum has blossomed into a full-time business. Kylie, entirely self-taught, has dedicated the past twenty years honing her skills and exploring new styles, drawing inspiration from her gothic past to infuse a hint of the dark-side style into her creations.

Handcrafted Elegance

Every piece from Lush Baubles is a testament to Kylie's craftsmanship. Hand-made and hand-wired, her jewellery combines semi-precious and precious ethical gemstones, recycled precious metals, and vintage and antique elements. Kylie's commitment to ethical materials is reflected in her meticulous sourcing process, spending hours scouring the globe for unique items that breathe life into her creations.

Transition to Full-Time Artistry

As her daughter embraced independence, Kylie found herself with more time to devote to her passion. Lush Baubles evolved from a part-time hobby into a full-time pursuit. The transition marked a significant milestone in Kylie's journey, allowing her to fully immerse herself in the art of crafting elegant and distinctive jewellery.

Navigating Challenges and Embracing Change

Like many small business owners, Kylie faced the challenges of the Covid-19 lockdowns, with cancelled markets disrupting the usual flow. However, she navigated through, adapting to the "new normal." Today, her focus is on propelling Lush Baubles to the next level, overcoming obstacles and embracing change with determination.

Future Dreams and Online Ventures

Looking ahead, Kylie envisions a lasting presence for Lush Baubles in the market scene. The exciting news is the launch of Lush Baubles Online. This move to the online realm comes with its own set of challenges, but Kylie is determined to take her unique styling international, broadening her reach through a greater online presence.

The Heart of the Market

For Kylie, the true joy lies in the people – the patrons seeking that special something and the fellow stallholders sharing conversations. The vibrant community at Perth Makers Markets adds an extra layer of enjoyment to Kylie's artistic journey.
