Hello and welcome!
My name is Isabel and I am the owner and creator of www.jewellery-works.com. I live in the very beautiful North Yorkshire and since being a little girl I have always been completely and utterly jewellery obsessed. From wearing several watches on my arm at the same time (see above photo age 9 cringe-tastic!) to opening my own jewellery store when I was just seven, called 'Jewellery and Co' (located in my late Father's outside office). I used to make jewellery out of Fimo clay and beads then show or sell them to any visitors to the house, the pride I took in my displays, having my own filing system in place, the receipts and price labels to the open/closed sign on the door was truly gratifying for me.
As I grew up I found myself interested in various entrepenerial projects including creating stock as a distributor to retail outlets, assisting and managing retail outlets. After years of this experience I then built up and ran my own real store (whilst getting married and having my first baby - sheer determination and a crazy time indeed). This kind of responsibility together with my experience taught me some great service and business skills although it was a time when taking in my baby daughter in to the shop until she was six months was no longer an option. Looking back I cannot believe I actually did it for this long. I had a fantastic two years of meeting some great customers and suppliers alike but the time was right to sell the business and focus on being a Mummy. I used to see people through the shop window pushing prams on walks with their children, craving to be able to do this and to be what I considered to be a 'normal Mummy'.
Once I successfully sold the business and had this new found freedom I spent my days enjoying walks, playdates and meeting other like-minded mothers. I had my second child when my first was just two years old - yikes, this was a fun rollercoaster, but probably the busiest and most stressful time of motherhood for me. Whilst staying at home with my children, I always dabbled in buying and selling handmade jewellery into retail outlets, hosting parties and events. I think it was really good for my focus so that I wasn't always fixated in the 'mummy-zone' and I could have a little job with my own pocket money whilst indulging in something I loved. After a long time of planning, a lot of data input and coding later and of course once the children were both settled at school, I launched this website. It does enable me to be able to do the school runs, some household management and of course focus on my passion for beautiful jewellery, fashion, marketing and my customer 's needs.
I am inspired by many things including independent businesses with the same ethos, I try where I can to fully support my locals and independents, it really is important and something we all need to maintain. My travels abroad in France, Spain and North America have had an impact on my life teaching me values, quality and aspirations. I am so lucky that I have a really supportive husband, family and good friends (who must have thought/or probably still think I was a bit too determined or crazy at times). I hope you enjoyed reading this blurb about me and it has made your online shopping experience a bit more personal to you now you know my story - happy browsing.
