ME - Mary Enright Designer Jewellery
What do you provide/offer?
A highly experienced goldsmith and jewellery designer with ten years experience in the jewellery trade, I launched my distinctive branded business in 2011 specialising in handmade limited edition ranges and bespoke jewellery.
By employing a relationship driven business building approach I have created long term and profitable customer relationships. Strong people skills accompanied by superior craftsmanship, design and knowledge offer a truly unique experience for clients.
Why do you provide/offer this?
I trained as a goldsmith with the Design and Crafts Council of Ireland and after working within the jewellery trade in Ireland decided to realise my own dream of opening a design studio and retail outlet where I create and sell my original designs.
When was the business established?
The business was established in June 2011.
Where are you located?
The business is located on Market Street, Kinsale, Co. Cork.
What resources were made available to you by the Local Enterprise Office South Cork that helped your business?
- Mentoring support; marketing, business plan preparation, finance and trade show preparation.
- Social Media training programme.
- Business Expansion Grant.
How has the company progress as a result?
Without the initial support of the LEO South Cork both in terms of grant funding and mentoring I would have found it very difficult to have a strategic plan in place for my first couple of years in business as my professional background is primarily an artistic one.
I have through continued mentoring support expanded both in terms of my initial business plans and also new markets that I would not have considered in the early days of the business.
The LEO South Cork office took the time to get to know me and understand what my business is all about and where I want it to grow, their continued support has always been greatly appreciated by ME.
