Lochgilphead jewellery business continues to sparkle

‘It felt like the right time as I could work from home, giving me flexibility whilst pursuing something I love’

WHEN Mhairi Mac-Donald’s gran came over to visit her from Australia and showcased her jewellery-making skills, it wasn’t long before the mum-of-two was hooked.

Now, almost eight years later, Mhairi’s business, Bluebell Jewels, supplies a host of gift shops throughout Argyllshire including Inveraray Castle.

With support from Business Gateway Argyll and Bute, Mhairi, who is based in Lochgilphead, was able to turn her hobby into a business and is now looking to grow. Mhairi, a former bank worker, creates unique, handcrafted necklaces, bracelets and earrings which are available to buy online and in various gift shops.
