I’m Certified!

Just a quick post to let you know that I was honoured to pick up a certificate on Tuesday 21st June at The Best of Guernsey’s Midsummer Networking Event for receiving lots of lovely testimonials from my clients on the Pierrine Feature on their website.

Collecting Certificate at The Best of Guernsey Networking Event

Pierrine has been recognised as one of the best businesses in Guernsey because ‘we produce beautiful, unique jewellery, offer a friendly, efficient service and are great value for money‘.

To be honest I am running a bit out of room in my office / lounge to display this and my other certificate for being recognised as one of the top five jewellery businesses in the UK, but I have managed to make room for it.

The Certificate

I was slightly embarrassed to pick it up (can’t you tell by the red tint to my face) as Pierrine is only a small business I do in my spare time and there are lots of great jewellery makers out there, but I will be honoured to have it out on display when my clients come for their meetings.

It is always so lovely to read the feedback that my clients put in their testimonials and I can’t help but be inspired to work harder and continue on with their encouragement and praise. So thank you to all the Pierrine clients, especially those that kindly provided me with some feedback.

If you have used my services and would like to leave feedback please use this link or email pierrine@cwgsy.net

Thank you


Pierrine’s First Award

Last night Pierrine picked up its first award at The Best of Guernsey’s ’14 Days of Love’ presentation which took place at the Baan Thai restaurant in Guernsey.

My First Award – (read on to find out more……..)


Several Best of Guernsey business members were invited to the presentation for placing in the ‘Top 5 Most Loved Businesses in their category in the UK’. The ‘Top 5 Most Loved Businesses in Guernsey’ were also in attendance to receive their award.

Everyone looked slightly nervous at the start of the presentation but once the awards were being given out, the atmosphere became one of celebration. Supporting other local businesses in their efforts and some also even meeting new people and contacts. It was lovely to see local businesses place against UK businesses and some even winning their category making them the Most Loved Business in their category in the whole of the UK.

Congratulations must be given to Baan Thai restaurant who was voted the ‘Most Loved Business in Guernsey’ and who hosted the evening amazingly, provided a delicious buffet of food and allowed me to take a doggy bag home for my husband (who was very appreciative).

It came to my turn to get my award and although feeling a little out of place at first, as a small business owner running it in my spare time, as soon as I had that certificate in my hand I realised that I deserved to be up there just as anyone else.

Pierrine's First Award - The Best of Guernsey's 14 Days of Love Presentation

Although Pierrine may be a small business, the campaign was about people providing testimonials for valuing a business / product / service, to place as the 5th ‘Most Loved Jewellery Business in the UK’ and in the ‘Top Twenty Most Loved Businesses in Guernsey’ showed that I must be doing something right and that my customers appreciate my personal, friendly and down to earth service.

I took my certificate home and have placed it somewhere that whenever I am up late working on jewellery, or struggling to find the right bead or wondering if it is all worth doing, I can look at it and remember why I started the business, pick myself up and continue my journey with Pierrine.

I must thank all those who continue to support me and keep pushing me with kind words.
