We won an award and we are still very excited about it and can't quite believe it!
We were shortlisted for the award earlier this year and I was then interviewed via zoom in June and was asked lots of questions about the designs and the inspiration behind them.
We had to wait until September 1st for the event where the winner was announced and tried to put it to the back of our minds. The day eventually arrived and we got dressed up in our fanciest clothes and headed down to London town for the black tie event at the brewery
We had a delicious meal and afterwards the award winners were announced. We were up against some truly amazing designers and brands and I honestly didn't think we would win, but then the unimaginable happened, our name was called out 'Amanda Coleman Jewellery'.
It means so much to have won an award like this and to have, not only to have our designs and hard work recognised but also for the recognition from the industry that they 'get' what we are doing, creating hand crafted, high quality jewellery in silver, here in the UK at prices regular people can afford.
The judges comments were:
"Our judging panel was impressed by this winner’s stellar business model and their clear signature style as a designer."
Amanda Coleman Jewellery is a team effort, not just the small team we have here but also all the people and small businesses that we rely on to make the jewellery and bring it to you our customers. This is why we are passionate about hand crafting our jewellery in the UK and using the talents and skills of those in the jewellery industry and other creative industries and making sure that these skills are not lost.
We also thank you, our customers, for supporting us for all these years, we couldn't have done it without you!
