ARMELLE DE BLANCHARD
Paris-based jewellery consultant
After Language Studies in la Sorbonne, she lived abroad and dabbled in various domains. Her mother was CEO of jewellery workshop but Armelle thought it was too easy to join the family business (which of course it was not). She eventually joined the jewellery industry in 2008. Two significant experiences mark her career: one for a signature brand and another for a workshop in Paris. Now a jewellery consultant, she also launched English conversation workshops for the trade, gives lectures within companies and assists craftspersons in their job research.
Find the right words.
Use the right tools.
How do you build trust and passion for a job well done between a brand, its suppliers and all the players involved in the same project? By speaking the same language!
A communication & export manager in a Paris' jewellery workshop, I was confronted with a lack of comprehensive and verified resources on the trade in English and in Italian and I needed them on a daily basis.
I researched on-line and couldn't find convincing data so I created my own technical multilingual on-line word entry. From an excel worksheet sprung an on-line project built by Giuseppe.
Three years later, I started my own business and we built it around the lexicon. We added a jewellery events' calendar and useful information about the trade that will be enriched over time.
You create stunning jewellery and perfectly know your way around it but don't have the time or expertise to do the some of the rest? You're launching your workshop but you are not entirely sure you've thought of all the issues? You're launching your brand?
You need a copilot for your activity in order to get your serenity back on a day-to-day basis, let me help ! I assist the players of the jewellery trade from the gouache design to the fitted box, from A to Z.

Ethics & governance
Today more than ever, talking about a company's values is also a way to see one another's philosophy. Working for someone or for oneself cannot just be about being business-oriented and passionate.
Our values revolve around the goal of offering the come as a result of our work experiences: challenge, goodwill, trust, collaboration, open-mindedness and integrity. They are invaluable in the context of building business ties around the world.
There's a lovely motto, carved by Brigette Hyacinth that says "work for someone who appreciates your ideas, loyalty and hard work". Simple, efficient and relevant. I would also like to add that extra care, practical sense and spirit of enterprise allow me to work on the resolution of your problems and the implementation of solutions.
