Self-taught jeweller Lenique Louis began her career creating handmade pieces of jewellery using handmade tools on a broken table in a makeshift jewellery studio in her grandmother's garage, after a trip to Thailand East of Eden Coral Reef where she discovered Coral Reef.
She wanted to turn what she saw into wearable jewellery. She approached The Prince's Trust who gave her business loan, mentor and business training on the Enterprise course. Lenique finally had the tools and confidence she needed to launch her luxury jewellery business.
Launched in 2011, award-winning jewellery designer Lenique Louis specialises in organic hand crafted jewellery for 'women who dare to be different'. Working from her London-based workshop in Cockpit Arts, Holborn, she creates distinctive organic jewellery using the ancient technique of Hand Carved Wax.
Lenique Louis has turned her life around thanks to The Prince's Trust help, she now has an award winning jewellery business that is growing internationally and is recognised in her industry for her innovative jewellery designs. Her jewellery is worn by celebrities including Ellie Goulding, Ella Eyre and Hollywood actress Lauren McCrostie and featured in international fashion magazines Harper's Bazaar and Vogue .
" I am so grateful for all The Prince's Trust has done for me. If it wasn't for them believing in me, that I could turn my idea into a profitable successful jewellery business , I wouldn't be where I am now and I am forever grateful!" Lenique Louis
