And having a good understanding of customers is so vital for the jewellery industry - where often precious jewellery is less valued by its target market than the latest handbag or face cream. A change has to be made in the public perception of jewellery for the industry to thrive.

It’s the small independent retailers that add a vibrancy and creativity to the retail mix and who really really appreciate every tiny little sale they get.  It makes them so happy that did you know each and every one does a little dance every time they get a sale?  FACT! Which is why I support the ‘Just a card campaign’.

Three secrets you need to know...

Three secrets you need to know...

If you’ve never seen jewellery made, you may wonder what a piece of silver (or gold) looks like before it’s made into a beautiful piece?  What process does it have to go through to magically transform into an heirloom or statement item of jewellery?

Well now I can reveal all about how jewellery is made!

When I was 15, I fell in love...

When I was 15, I fell in love...
When I was 15 I fell in love with a man. No, not my husband, I didn’t meet him for almost another 10 years.  I actually fell in love with Charles Rennie Mackintosh, or to be more accurate, his work.

925 doesn’t mean it’s Sterling Silver

925 doesn’t mean it’s Sterling Silver
Although loads of people think a piece must be Sterling Silver if it’s got that 925 stamp on it, in reality it doesn’t prove a thing. Many pieces of Sterling Silver will have a 925 stamp (as 925 is indeed the sign for Sterling Silver - so it has a purity of 92.5% silver and 7.5% of the alloy is made of copper or another metal. This is because pure silver would be too soft for many pieces of jewellery). But here’s the thing: anyone can buy a 925 stamp and legally sell jewellery with it on, even if it’s NOT real silver.

Why that Mulberry handbag could be a better bargain than a Primark one!
I don’t know why, but the temptation to buy cheap is sometimes just too great. But on the few occasions I do splash out on quality, I never regret it.  It doesn’t even have to be designer, but if it’s good quality it more than likely will outlast any cheap piece. You may spend £70 on a beautiful cardigan, but if you wear it 70 times, that’s a cost per wear of just £1.

Yep, it was my job to jump around dressed as anything from a giraffe to a can-can dancer (by night) and teach aerobics classes (by day).  If this sounds like the best job ever, it was!
