A day in the life of award winning Designer Lucy Quartermaine!
As a busy working mum of three beautiful children, life is hectic for Lucy to say the least but she loves every second of what she does. We live by the motto… ‘Choose a job you love and you will never have to work and day in your life’ and this exactly what LQ team do.
Kickstarting a typical day in the life of Lucy begins with dropping her children off at school, it is always a busy morning in the LQ household. Lucy loves that she can be a mum and a business woman all rolled into one. After this it is back to the office to begin her working day.
Like most of us Lucy of course starts off any working day with a coffee, this boosts her to get on with any admin tasks.
The rest of Lucy’s morning involves creating new design ideas for her wonderful customers. She uses her iPad to develop her stunning sketches, bringing them to life. Each and every design involves an intricate process. Each creation stems from a love of all things nature specifically liquid elements in motion. Cascading droplets of a waterfall, rippling waves and wild winds are just some of nature that Lucy captures within her collections.
Design has always been Lucy’s passion, she is always looking for inspiration in her everyday life. At university, Lucy studied Silversmithing and Design and this is where her ideas and creations began. Some of her early collections were even inspired by her favourite university snacks (sweets and crisps collections we’re looking at you!)
Lucy Quartermaine HQ, really is where the magic happens. From one modest building, we manage our brand, design, repair,
size, polish and send out orders to a wide range of wonderful customers. Additionally, Lucy’s day involves ensuring any special orders are complete such as sizing our rings to fit perfectly and polishing jewellery for a customer’s special occasion. This is an important part of our aftercare service which we are extremely proud of.
Maintaining and developing the LQ website is another one of Lucy’s daily tasks. She keeps our website up to date, deals with our customer enquiries and ensures all is running smoothly. Our office and workshop are always full of life… with laughter, happiness and hard work. You can often find us drinking coffee and singing along to the Greatest Showman soundtrack!
Once School has ended, she collects her children and returns to the office juggling mummy duties and working. We may be biased but we think she is superwoman.
