Mum No.11, Michelle

Mum No.11, Michelle

Michelle came to the Business Pop-up Project in Sutton after deciding that she wanted to combine her experiences in Thailand with her interest in making jewellery – MeMe Jewellery was born!

What have you achieved in 2016?

2016 has been such a fantastic year: I finally turned my dream into a reality and started my very own handmade jewellery business. The company has gone from strength to strength and has achieved good sales through the means of pop up markets, online sales and friends. My greatest achievement was solely designing and creating my website. The website has been running since the beginning of October and I'm now seeing sales coming through it, which is so exciting.

How have you achieved this?
I have a two year old that is in nursery two days a week; those two days I work as hard as possible and work evenings and weekends to keep on top of the work load. I have had tremendous support through the Pop-up Sutton programme including Jane as one of my business mentors, as well as from friends and my husband who have been amazing.

What does 2017 hold?
2017 will be mostly about expanding my online presence. I have set myself sales goals for my website to push myself to achieve greater sales. I really would like my website to be my focus. I am also aiming to have Me Me Jewellery stocked in a range of local boutiques.

Festive Traditions...
Christmas is all about family for me, I love spending quality time with everyone. My favourite Christmas songs are the old classics, I love “I'm dreaming of a white Christmas”, it reminds me of putting up the tree when I was young. This Christmas has already been magical as we are introducing Christmas, and passing on family traditions, to our little boy; the look on his little face is so special.
