How did Sour Cherry come around?
Lets rewind to 7 years ago! Kayleigh was just 21 when she started to design and make jewellery from scratch, spending hours in our parents garage, listening to Destiny's Child, experimenting with different materials and designs all day and night. While me, (Jess) age 13 at the time, would sit quietly and watch (and by that, i mean i would sit and touch everything, sing as loud as i could and push her to the edge of insanity, but thats what little sister's are for, right?).
Then in 2009, Sour Cherry was born! We started selling our jewellery online and at craft fayres, and our customer's couldn't get enough! We grew bigger and better! We was able to afford a proper workshop, with bigger and better equipment, which ment better designs and materials and hey! Here we are now in 2016! In our massive workshop, pumping our new, fresh designs, making our customers happy and enjoying every single minute of it!
I hope you all enjoyed learning more about us and how we got to this point! We promise to do more 'Behind The Scenes' blogs! Remember to check back with our blogs for more exciting things to come!
