Silverwood has won the SME News Northern Enterprise Award for the ‘Best Emerging Jewellery Brand’ in 2021.
The Northern Enterprise Awards celebrates the small and new businesses and projects in the north of England, and this marks the return of the awards ceremony for the third consecutive year.
Silverwood has received the award for its work across the year, including introducing its jewellery for the first time through the launch of its website, creating four full collections including necklaces, earrings, bangles, bracelets and rings, and displaying the jewellery across a series of art galleries.
Additionally, the jewellers also joined the National Association of Jewellers, received listings on other online marketplaces, and planted trees with One Tree Planted through its customers.
Claire De Bezenac, owner and creator of Silverwood, said: “As for many entrepreneurs, dedication and resilience has been paramount, because the last two years have been very challenging.
“Having launched Silverwood at pretty much the same time as Covid, it hasn’t been the ideal start. However, I am grateful and proud of what has been accomplished and that I have been able to start on this journey.”
She added: “I want to take this occasion to thank all those who have supported and encouraged me along the way.
“I hope 2022 will be a phenomenal year of business growth, success and exploration.”
