When Hayley Birtles-Eades migrated to Australia from the UK at a young age, times were tough, she had to drop out of school to provide for her struggling family. Born with an entrepreneurial spirit and drive, her head down, bum up work ethic has gotten her to where she is today.
Recognising she wasn’t employee material, she started Porcelain Rose at 21; creating an innovative fashion trend (featured in the Museum of Modern Art) amongst affluent Sydneysiders. This was her first stepping stone to entrepreneurial success. Taking all she learned from Porcelain Rose, she created the Baby Wedge and Born Brand.
Never one to rest on her laurels, whilst shopping online in 2011, Hayley stumbled across a locket filled with charms, after ordering and receiving a poor-quality product, she decided she’d do a better job. Love Lockets was created. Borrowing $900 from her dad, Hayley set up a trestle table at the markets and quickly grew the business into a global multi-million dollar brand.
