Who do these hands belong to?
Tallulah, Retail Assistant
What is your role at Natalie Marie Jewellery and how long have you been part of the team?
My role involves working in our beautiful showroom, where I help customers, manage online enquiries and assist the rest of the lovely NMJ team! Being in the showroom means I get to spend a lot of time with our customers, and it is so rewarding helping them find a special piece, whether it be wedding bands, engagement rings or a birthday present. Being a part of these special events in peoples lives is definitely a highlight of the role!
Describe a typical day for you?
Arriving at work to be greeted by the team all busy making their tea and coffee, and… usually wondering what cake I have brought with me! From there I get our showroom ready for the day, accompanied by Buddy the bulldog. On a day to day basis, I am helping customers, replying to emails, assisting the lovely Em & Nat and of course working alongside our amazing Customer Service Manager, Erin. My afternoons involve catching up on admin work, making sure the showroom is looking beautiful and trying to resist the 3pm chocolates that Dan drops off for the NMJ team.
What is your most treasured piece of jewellery?
I adore vintage pieces and couldn’t stop wearing the Wilhelmina while setting up and packing down. Needless to say, I now get to wear it every day, and have my first heirloom for my future family.
