The delightful mother and daughter duo Hayley and Janet are the brains and creative spirit behind Exquisite Style. What began as a kind of therapy after Janet was diagnosed with breast cancer seven years ago, has flourished into a bead based business, which now includes wholesaling their products nationally, a shopfront in Hobart, and our personal favourite…a gorgeous range of handmade satin flowers. Featuring lovely layers of colour, and finished with an intricately bejewelled centre, these fancy blooms have become a favourite with brides, bridesmaids and floral minded people generally!

Do you have a day job, if so what is it? 
My day job is working in the family business Exquisite Style, where I help ladies choose their beads and design jewellery for them.

When did your business begin and why? 
The business began when my mother was diagnosed with breast cancer, she used beading as a means of therapy and the interest was developed as I helped her through the years of treatment.

Inspiration/design aesthetic? 
I gain a lot of my inspiration from the 1950’s style of the actresses jewellery used in the Hollywood movies, also the 1940’s was another inspirational time period.

Designers you admire? 
Miriam Haskell of New York.

What is your favourite part of Tasmania? 
I love the little town of Stanley on the northwest.

What do you love about what you do...and any little gripes or niggles? 
Mainly it is the love of creating amazing jewellery

What can our lovely customers expect to see you exhibiting? 
My handcrafted silk and satin flowers.
