Well it has finally happened and we are delighted to have opened our doors on schedule ( a few minutes after...) at 10am on Saturday 26th of September. It was a wonderful day with friends , local residents and clients pouring in throughout the day and most of them taking advantage of our introductory offer - pop into the shop to grab your flyer for £25 off your first purchase!
We have had wonderful support from the other Castle Road Traders as well as residents nipping in regularly to welcome us to the street and being excited about our arrival. ( the two students in the flat above did tell me they would be relieved that the early morning hammering and drilling of the shop fitters would be over - bless them)
We couldnt have achieved this without such a brilliant bunch of people around us. So many people gave support in different ways from the craftsmen who fitted the shop such as Brian, Derek and Dave so reliably and skillfully. To our family members roped in to painting walls and lugging furniture, to our display expert ( AKA bespoke wedding dress designer) David Western, Clive and Chris from Shop Southsea over the road, Alan our neighbour/security guard... the list is endless ( feels like the oscars - there are loads of people I have not named)
Anyway or final team on a weekly basis are now Claire Humphreys front-of-house, Clare Halsey our resident Goldsmith and myself, Charlotte, Designer and Director and we are all here to help you experience the joy of having one-of-a-kind jewellery created especially to celebrate your meaningful life events and milestones. So come and see for yourself how we are determined to nurture British design and manufacturing right here in Hampshire, at the same time as offering you the luxury of your own handmade jewellery to treasure for a lifetime.
Jewellery for Life!
