Founder Jessica Rose beats 3,000 applicants to everywoman Award.
London Jewellery School founder Jessica Rose has won the Artemis Award for businesswomen aged under 25 at the prestigious NatWest everywoman Awards.
Rose was picked out by the judges in recognition of her achievement of turning £5,000 of savings and a £10,000 loan into a £500,000 a year business before the age of 25.
She said: “I am so shocked and honoured to have been selected for this award out over over 3,000 applicants. It was amazing to be alongside so many inspirational and influential business women and the awards are such a great way of celebrating and raising the profile of female entrepreneurs.
“I am also especially proud that such prestigious business awards like this are finally recognising the entrepreneurial spirit of the jewellery and craft industries which, in turn, will help to increase awareness and stimulate growth in this field.”
Rose said that she has plans to take London Jewellery School nationwide with a plan to open it up to franchise partners across the UK.
She said: “I am looking forward to an exciting year ahead, franchising the London Jewellery School to become a national brand and supporting budding jewellers in setting up their own business. Jewellery is my passion and I hope with the success I have had so far that I can help inspire others to follow their dream and build a creative and innovative future.”
