Can you please fully explain your business or product line?
Shining Bliss Co. is a small business located in Niverville, Manitoba offering you classy jewelry made with dried pressed flowers enclosed in resin as well as faith-based & inspirational pieces that are sure to delight & make you shine bright.
With the Winnipeg local maker community continuing to grow, what is the most important thing you’d like potential customers of your company to know?
Each jewelry piece’s goal is not only to help you complete your outfit but also to make you smile, inspire you, and encourage you on your journey. They also make a meaningful gift for friends & loved ones.
What inspired you to start your business?
It started as a hobby during the pandemic which turned into the idea of starting this small business. It gives me joy and, at the same time, lets me touch other people’s lives even in a simple, beautiful way.
What was the biggest struggle you’ve had to overcome?
It’s the balancing of time between my accounting job, studies, and managing the business.
What has been your biggest success as a maker?
It’s so fulfilling when I receive messages from supportive customers saying that receiving their packages from my shop brightens their day and that they really love what they have purchased. It is also a milestone for Shining Bliss Co. to be featured here in The WPG Magazine.
Do you have any advice that you would pass on to someone hoping to start up their own business or product line?
Don’t doubt yourself. If you want to start your own small business & you feel overwhelmed at first, take one step at a time & have fun during the process. There is a perfect time for everything. Slow progress is still progress. You can do it!
