Jessica founded London Jewellery School aged just 21 in 2009 with only one class a month from a community hall in South London. Now it is a huge success having trained over 7,000 students with over 50 fun and professional jewellery classes running of per month.
Jessica fell in love with jewellery making after leaving school and enrolling on her first ever jewellery making class. With original plans to set up and run her own label, selling her handmade jewellery, Jessica left her university course and part-time job to pursue her dreams. She began teaching others how to make their own jewellery as a sideline to her business initially, but enjoyed teaching so much that it wasn’t long before she had launched her own jewellery school.
A few short years later and the London Jewellery School is a huge success attracting 1000s of students and visitors from London, the UK and abroad. It offers over 80 different types of jewellery making class, has a thriving membership scheme and offers distance learning courses.
And in 2014 Jessica has already launched JewelryFromHome.com, bringing LJS-style courses to a wider audience through online tutorials.
Building LJS to be the successful business it is today hasn’t always been easy. Jessica has faced huge personal as well as professional difficulties along the journey resulting in the threat of bankruptcy early on. However these adversities have only made Jessica and her team all the more determined and resilient to challenges, making her a great mentor and source advice for other growing businesses.
