This weeks giveaway Q&A..

So we launched our newsletters on Down that Little Lane last week and we are going to be running fortnightly giveaways for the rest of our days.. its our way of saying thanks for the support and an even better way of showcasing all the amazing talent we have available to buy!

The current giveaway is from Lisa of Argenton Design here is my Q&A with this gorgeous babe.

When did you start your business and how did it come about?

I started my business in 2001, after seven years of working in the jewellery industry, I could not contain my desire to have full creative license over my work.

Why did you choose your business name?

 Argenton is my last name which descended from France and is translated into "silver town" so I thought it was quite appropriate .

What have you most enjoyed in your career so far?

I love that I can make a living, making beautiful things that other people love and cherish, it is a really special privilege to be involved in designing and making engagement and wedding rings, choosing jewllery can be a very intimate and meaningful experience for many people and I love that I get to know people on such a personal level.

Have you had any major highlights, personal or business in the last few years?

My highlights in the last few years is entering into family life with the arrival of my two beautiful boys Kaelan who is now 4 and Jesse who is 2 and a half, it has been hard to juggle work and family life, and with a very supportive partner, I love that I can do both, In Dec 2009 when Jesse was just 6months I opened my store in in 5 ways Paddington, which has been a great experience, I love having a space to share my creativity.

What inspires or motivates you?

my designs are simple, clean and contemporary inspired by Symbolism, Art Deco, Art Nouveau and the Orient. I love colour and combining gemstones together, with rose gold, yellow or white gold, and I could play endlessly with beads.
..and lastly tell me one things about yourself that you love but has nothing to do with business..

I love that I have discipline and motivation to eat well, I love the use of food as medicine, and I am inspired by raw, whole, and organic food, and would love one day to write a recipe book one day.
