She comments on the new role: “Joining a team of such skilled silversmiths and being able to showcase their work makes me feel very lucky. There is a lot of work to do to bring new stockists on board, but I am enthused by the challenge –there are plenty of designs, the quality of the jewellery is truly exceptional and made to withstand every-day wear, all while being created here in the UK.”
