"I came to Butterfly Beads to buy a pair of earrings and immediately fell in love with this store. I noticed they were looking to hire someone and inquired right away. It is now 10 years later and I still have the passion for jewellery as I did when I first came to this store. I love working here because we have a great team of employees, lovely customers and a wonderful working environment. What I love most about this store is how often I can express my creativity using their different products and be able to wear what I make. I didn't make this bracelet but it is one of my favourite because it expresses my personality. This store has done more for me than any other workplace - I've formed friendships and good memories and I can't imagine myself working anywhere else."
"I started working here in February 2017 and have known about this store for approximately 5 years. I came upon this store when a neighbor of mine wanted to take jewellery making classes. I thought about this store and figured they might have classes. I was amazed at how much jewellery supplies they carried. I love being crafty so this store was basically a candy store to me. I immediately fell in love with their selection of semi-precious stones, which as you can see, I have made many bracelets from. I couldn't stop coming here because of how welcoming and lovely the staff and owners were. A couple of months went by and the owners offered me a teaching position for their demo. My first class was a chainmaille demo and it was a great experience because of how engaging the customers were. I knew then that this was what I wanted to do. Overall, I love working here because of how comfortable everyone makes me feel. This place is basically a second home to me which is why at the end of every shift, it is difficult for me to leave"
