*NEW* Feature Friday- Sugar & Vice 14th of December


New Feature Friday!
Featuring Sugar & Vice 

Such a joy to be featuring this company whom offers so many handmade gorgeous bits and pieces! If your like me, and have an eye for unique and stylish accessories then this site is for you. Sugar and vice create pieces such as necklaces, rings, earrings to even personalised accessories! Their charms are made from plastic, some are made from lightweight alloy metals such as pewter, most are made from brass that has been either silver or gold plated. All of their charms are completely lead-free and have not been known to cause an allergic reaction, however, they cannot guarantee that they are all nickel-free. 

As soon as you click to go to their website, you can see that their navigation to different parts of their stock is very clear and presented nicely with a lovely kitsch notebook background it all fits in so well with their theme!

Interview with Sarah Victoria l Co-Owner of Sugar & Vice

1) What has been your key inspiration to your current career?
A) The main thing that inspired me to start the company was, at the time, a distinct lack of the sort of jewellery that I wanted to wear. I've always been very fond of bold, colourful pieces and the only people fitting that bill were Tatty Devine. As much as I adore their work, my bank balance wouldn't allow me to splurge on any of their pieces so I decided to do my own thing and make it more affordable but try to be just as original and quirky!

2) What do you enjoy the most about your job?
A) Working for yourself is very much a game of two halves; it's incredibly difficult but also incredibly satisfying. Nothing in the world beats checking my emails to find a glowing review or a sincere thank you from a happy customer. It never fails to make my day and to know that I've made something that someone genuinely loves is the best feeling ever.

3) To date, what has been your 'proudest' moment?
A) Ooh, that's a tough one! To be honest, no one thing springs to mind. This job is a constant parade of 'proudest' moments, thankfully. Each new piece we design and produce makes us incredibly proud so it's a continual thing and I think constant pride in your work is a very important factor in this business.

4) Where do you see yourself in the future?
A) At the moment, I'm looking into the logistics of opening a brick shop. Sugar & Vice has always been a uniquely online company so I'd love to open a shop in Kent in the next few years. Watch this space!

5) What tips/advice would you give to someone who wants to go down the same career path as yourself?
A) The most important piece of advice I could give anyone is to simply not give up. Times have been very tough over the last few years, especially with the financial climate being what it is, but if you're passionate about something and are prepared to work hard for very little money to begin with, then it'll definitely be worth it in the end. It's taken me 6 years to create a successful business with nothing in the way of business loans or shop overheads so anything is possible if you put your heart and soul into it. 

6) Which would you say is your favourite item off your website at the moment?
A) I think my personal favourite would have to be the Pug Necklace as I'm mad on pugs! A customer favourite and probably one of our more versatile pieces though, is the Magpie Necklace.
