I am Ruth Nadal, a jewellery maker based in Barcelona. I craft soul and slow jewellery with creative and unique designs. My business is in a medium stage, so has the basics but needs to communicate its values to grow up.
I was born into a family of artists, and my father became my master, teaching me about jewellery and its artisan techniques. In jewellery, I found my way of life and expression, allowing me to tell stories through jewellery pieces.
I craft new designs, and I also customize family jewels into new portable art pieces. I turn emotions into jewels that connect with clients. Furthermore, I use ancient artisan techniques to make jewels for today.
My business objectives are:
My business objective is to be an economically viable enterprise to grow up.
I want to achieve respect and confidence from the clients. These values are the basis of my business through professional and honest jewellery behaviour.
My learnings from the Crafting Business Programme:
Having an economically viable business, I could try different business lines to avoid which don’t work.
Selling products is the key, but pricing is the basis.
I have changed my business structure because of different business lines; my own personal jewellery brand and my workshop where I can customize and personalize masterpieces. Now, my family’s jewellery legacy is the connection with professional experience and client confidence.
