Debbie Hurley-Laing a successful jewellery business owner decided to start her company “Genesis Jewellery Boutique” after receiving encouragement from her husband and feeling the need to pursue her ideas.

When Debbie started her boutique her passion stemmed from her affection for mother earth and her beauty. She reflected her passion by naming her brand “Genesis”.

The name Genesis is symbolic of the creation of gold, silver and other precious and semi-precious stones. She goes on to add that we should appreciate the beauty of natural materials that are found on our planet. We should still be conscious of the fact that all gold, silver and platinum are part of our beautiful planet and ultimately adds to the beauty of jewelry.

The largest problem Debbie has faced on her journey is penetrating the market and proving her character to prospective clients. They are often skeptical about the quality of precious metals. Initially, she found it difficult to push past this threshold. To overcome this, she used her grit and resilience by performing her own quality control checks when sourcing materials.

Debbie encourages new entrepreneurs to keep chasing their dreams and never lose sight of their ambitions. Entrepreneurship can seem daunting, but it is an experience that is rewarding. “Let your vision become a reality.”
