Stef Warde, the owner of Brighton jewellers Peculiar Vintage , has won the opportunity to advertise her work on national TV for one week in November.

In October, Warde entered the ‘15 Seconds of Fame’ competition hosted by mobile payments company, iZettle. Warde had to submit a 15 second video in order to be in with a chance of winning her own television advert. Hundreds of small businesses across the UK entered and with only seven winners, competition was tight but Warde managed to make her business shine above the others.

As a winner of the competition, Warde will now get to see her advert broadcast up and down the country for a week in November. The advert will be shown on channels such as Sky News, Sky Sports, Comedy Central and many more.


On winning Warde says: “I didn’t actually think I’d become one of the winners. It hasn’t fully sunk in yet. I’m excited for what this competition will bring for my business and how busy it will get especially during this time of the year. Bring it on.”

Stef Warde became a full-time jeweller three years ago. After an inspirational trip to South America Warde started designing her first jewellery line Curio which ties into the name of her shop, Peculiar Vintage located in Brighton on Baker Street.

A year on from opening her shop, and three collections later, Peculiar Vintage is at its full capacity with production, especially commissions increasing year on year.
