Fellow parent-preneur Mrs Chee (pictured above), 29, can attest to experiencing that same sense of satisfaction.
She founded online store Lluie this year. It specialises in handmade “mum jewellery”, kids necklaces and teether toys that are made of “100 per cent non-toxic” materials. Items in her mum jewellery range include necklaces and bangles made of silicone and wood.
After her daughter Delia was born last year, she found that she could no longer wear her costume jewellery as her infant would try to bite the items or place them into her mouth.
Her solution: create jewellery that was stylish and functional.
The bangles and necklaces allow mothers to accessorise while being safe enough for their little ones to chew on and fiddle with.
She started doing research last October and launched the business in January.
Although she has spent a five figure sum on the venture and has yet to break even, she says: “When I see Delia playing with the necklace or chomping on it, it makes me happy. It tells me that I’ve done something good.”
