Amy McGlade – The Baby Bee Hummingbirds DNA & BreastMilk Jewellery Academy

Amy McGlade is a mama of four, a passionate midwife and a globally renowned DNA & BreastMilk Jewellery artist – she turns special moments into tangible pieces of artisan handmade jewellery. Using breast milk, baby’s cord stump, a first curl, tooth or embryo ash* mums can wear these moments forever.

In April 2018 Amy launched The Baby Bee Hummingbirds DNA & BreastMilk Jewellery Academy; an online training program helping jewellers create profitable keepsake businesses.

*Straws from an IVF cycle are cremated by Amy and she then infuses the ashes into the jewellery- a concept she invented herself.

Dominique Perri – Anarkid

After running her own online retail store for 6 years, Dominique recognised an opportunity to support brands from a retail perspective.  With Kids fashion being a relatively new category, many up-and-coming brands she had come across had a great product but weren’t maximising their success as they weren’t marketing themselves properly.  When an opportunity presented itself, Dominique jumped at the chance to invest into Anarkid, one of the brands she had stocked at her online retail store and now is the Sales and Marketing Director for Anarkid.  Since then, she has invested into one other childrens label with the intention to build synergies between the brands, leveraging success for both brands.  Dominique has since sold her online retail store to focus on building her brands internationally and has more than doubled the sales for each brand over the last 6 months.
