- Why did you choose to become a jewellery designer?
I have been creative ever since I was a little child, but I am educated in economics and worked in finance for many years. It was not until I was 38 that I dared to follow my dream and work in a creative business. I choose to become a jewellery designer because I felt there was a gap in the market for thin gold bracelets in massive gold and real stones. So I started designing them myself. My first design was the mother of bracelets that has been a huge success.
It’s fantastic to see Jewellery having a platform during a fashion week as it is a crucial part of the fashion world.
Editors were buzzing about The Jewellery Room as if it was one of the most soughtafter shows in town. And it was
Beautifully styled and was such an easy and accessible way to experience many brands gathered under one roof.
