Erica was kind enough to answer some questions for me

What made you start your business?
I have always loved jewellery and whilst I was researching new openings, I noticed a real gap in the children’s jewellery market. I set about creating a jewellery collection that was simple enough to be worn by young girls and yet sophisticated enough for them to want to wear forever. Molly Brown London is now the leading girls’ jewellery brand in the UK and the natural development for us following this success was to launch a fine jewellery collection for women. We launched Molly B Couture for women online on a dual-sited website so that our customers can shop both brands at the same time.
We are based in Chiswick, West London and I set the business up in May 2006 , we are just coming up to our 7th birthday. Molly B Couture was launched this time last year.
Our website ships internationally but we are stocked in department stores such as Harrods, Selfridges and Fortnum & Mason, as well as 100 independent jewellers throughout the UK and Ireland.

What were you doing before?
I used to work for a global search firm within the Investment Banking sector. However, when my children were young I decided that I wanted more flexibility in my working life.

How would you describe your style?
I would like to think effortlessly chic! But let’s just stick to simple and sophisticated; the mantra for Molly B Couture is “Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication”.

What is your biggest achievement so far?
I have been so lucky and have so much to be proud of. Molly Brown has been described as “Tiffany for Girls” by Vogue, we have been finalists in the UK Jewellery Awards twice, within the first few months of being in Harrods the brand was the best-selling girl’s accessory across the entire children’s floor and our iconic Jelly Bean Collection was awarded Best New Product at the International Jewellery Show London.

What makes you different to your competitors?
The jewellery is truly keepsake and whilst other children’s jewellery is quite babyish, our designs are simple and yet classic and sophisticated. So, the USP is that the Molly Brown jewellery grows up with the child, and can be loved and worn forever. I strongly believe that jewellery is unlike any other gift in that it holds our memories and so if you have been given a piece of jewellery as a child or a teenager, it will remind you of the person that gave you the gift, or the occasion such as being a bridesmaid forever.
What do you enjoy most about your job?
That’s a hard one as there are so many aspects of the business that I enjoy working on. Developing new collections and working developing new marketing initiatives are probably my overall favourites.

What sort of customer do you think you attract?
I think we attract a variety of customers. The Molly B Couture collections are simple yet sophisticated and therefore complement THAT dress perfectly without diverting any attention. We also find that we get a lot of brides buying their bridesmaid and flower girl jewellery from Molly Brown, as we have designed many of our collections with this in mind.

What would be your ideal wedding to work on?
The next Royal Wedding!

Large Silver Lulu Locket Necklace What can you never leave the house without?
My iPhone and I have been known to turn back if I’ve forgotten to put some perfume on!

Who would be your 5 dream dinner guests dead or alive?
Stephen Fry, Anthony Hopkins, Michael Mcintyre, Victoria Beckham and Coco Chanel.

What would you do if you won the lottery?
Invest loads into Molly Brown London and Molly B Couture so that we could take over the world; buy a house in Italy, an apartment in New York and an apartment in Paris.

If you weren’t running your business, what would you be doing?
I would probably do an interior design course and spend ages doing up our house rather than running around trying to make quick decisions on things. I’d love to learn a language and learn how to play the piano properly. I did have piano lessons as a child but was naughty and never practiced.
We are just about to launch the Hope Collection, five necklaces featuring large and small open hearts, flowers and a cross, for christenings and Holy Communion. We are constantly asked for items that can be engraved and the Hope Collection is pretty, feminine and very contemporary and so will appeal to girls of all ages – in fact almost every girl in the office now has asked for one!
