Hi, I am Roberta. After taking voluntary redundancy from Virgin Atlantic after 16 years whilst pregnant, I found I really missed not only the crew, the trips and the social side of flying, but the thrill of having the world as my shopping haven. I loved finding unusual clothes and accessories in various countries and of course finding a bargain. Tired of the same overpriced jewellery and accessories available on the High St, I started searching online for unusual statement jewellery for myself. This led to many friends commenting and wanting to buy for themselves. I took a leap of faith and started The Blue Butterfly from my front room and now I have a website and sell all over the UK.
