This past weekend I was delighted to be featured in The Sunday Post as part of the newspaper’s look at female jewellery designers that making headway in an industry once dominated by males.
The story came on the back of statistics being released that showed that college jewellery making courses are often being made up of classes entirely full of females.
Like I said in the interview for the piece, I really do feel part of something special. Since starting up Jessica Florence Jewellery in 2012, it’s been such a great experience to see so many people interested in the brand.
Whether that is following us on Twitter and Facebook through to coming up to our stalls at wedding and jewellery fayres through to placing orders time and time again, it’s fantastic that there are so many people out there that supporting small start-up jewellery businesses like ours.
Ultimately though, it’s been great to put my creativity to such good use in creating the brand.
This latest media coverage is the second time in recent months that Jessica Florence Jewellery has featured prominently in a Sunday newspaper and the third piece of high profile coverage since April.
Already 2015 been a fantastic year for Jessica Florence Jewellery. We have been very busy at wedding fayres across the Dumfries and Galloway region, have our new website up and running and have received a great deal of interest in our pieces, particularly when it comes to our ability to create bespoke jewellery.
In May, the Scotland on Sunday’s ‘Spectrum’ magazine ran a two page feature in which Company Director Paula Gibson talked about the inspiration of her family on creating the jewellery business. From the company name being inspired by the name of her maternal grandmother and her sister through to her paternal grandmother, Mollie, leaving Paula a jewellery box of trinkets, the Jessica Florence Jewellery brand has a lot of personal meaning for Paula.
The previous month, Jessica Florence Jewellery was featured in the April edition of Scottish Wedding Directory magazine: a publication regarded as the ultimate go-to guide for brides getting married in Scotland.
That edition of the magazine showcased a Jessica Florence Jewellery collection that is inspired by the way frost crystallises and forms clusters on delicate cobwebs and grasses in the meadows of the Scottish countryside.
