Made For Women, By Women.
After hearing the quote “Be fearless in the pursuit of what sets your soul on fire”, I decided to take the plunge and dive in head-first, putting the essence of my heart in all of my jewellery designs.
I know for certain that it takes a huge amount of courage, perseverance, and passion to follow your heart and pursue a lifelong dream. Not all woman are fortunate to be able to do so, but and after having dedicated 20 years to the family business and taking time out to raise our three children, I knew I had to acknowledge that little voice inside which simply wouldn't leave me be and begin setting plans into place to become an entrepreneur.
It was amazing and daunting all at the same time. The day I finally took the leap of faith and registered a business, carrying my own name was a massive step in creating Jo Harpur Jewellery as my customers know it today.
My eternal love for all things beautiful and my desire to help make every woman feel special and beautiful really pushed me to start creating my own line of hand-crafted jewellery.
That, and my obsession with all things sparkly, shimmering and shiny since I was a child!
I was trained in the craft by renowned goldsmith, Deirdre O’Donnell, and decided to use only the best 925 Sterling Silver, 18ct Gold, stunning semi-precious stones & AAA Swarovski Crystals in my designs.
Bringing a Business To Life
It's one thing to have a dream, and another to achieve it. With this being said, I am the first person to admit that the prospect of putting myself out there was incredibly daunting. I was absolutely petrified in the beginning!
But, little by little, and step by step, my confidence grew and as I developed my first collection, I began approaching suitable shops, attending trade fairs and working very hard to get my name known to retail buyers, magazines and stylists. I had to overcome my insecurities and self-doubt, and truly pushed myself into the line of fire. As I did so, I immediately began to see fantastic results. Confidence is contagious, as they say, and I am convinced it is too.
Jo Harpur Jewellery is based on the belief that each and every woman deserves to feel beautiful, sophisticated and graceful and, I, therefore, have created my designs to be affordable, stylish and precious, perfect for treating yourself to something special or to gift to a dear friend, mother, sister or daughter.
