Abby.jpg

Abby Walsh

What started as a cute idea for a baby shower favour in 2014 has turned into an amazing small business success story for Abby Walsh of Stomping Elephants. The unofficial ‘$5 Earring Queen’, Abby has taken her hypoallergenic jewellery business from strength to strength while keeping its handmade integrity. That takes an extraordinary amount of work, not just for her, but also her extremely supportive family and a small team of dedicated staff.
