A pair of teenagers from Crossley are showing you are never too young to become an entrepreneur.
Ela Williams and Claudia Tutt, both 13, have started their own business, Crossley Designs, creating handmade jewellery.
The pair became friends this year when they began year seven together at Warrnambool College.
They were keen to find a way to get creative when it came to making some pocket money and making their own jewellery, earrings in particular, was the game-breaking idea they came up with.
They set up a Crossley Designs' Instagram account earlier this year and have been busy making, and more importantly, selling, their product ever since.
Word quickly spread, with Crossley Designs selling its wares not only locally but into the Melbourne market.
The girls want to grow their online profile and are are also keen to sell their jewellery at local markets during summer.
"We saw this as a way of sharing our creativity and starting a business as well," Claudia said.
"It's been good fun working on this together."
Ela said Crossley Designs was providing an ongoing challenge.
"It takes a lot of time and patience and it is a lot of trial and error," Ela said.
"We are always looking to get better at what we are doing so that's a good challenge to have."
