Full name: Lisa Snowdon
Brand: Lisa Snowdon Fine Jewellery
Q: What inspired you to create the Diamond Wishbone Watch?
A: I wanted to create an elegant timepiece that would not only be practical but also be a beautiful piece of jewellery that would be versatile for day and night.
Q: What’s your top jewellery styling tip?
A: Have fun with it, mix your metals, experiment with different styles and colours too. Don’t get stuck in a jewellery rut, life’s too short!
Q: What was your first job?
A: I was a silver service waitress. I only lasted two weeks I wasn’t very good!
Q: If you weren’t in your current profession, what do you think you would be doing instead?
A: I think I’d be working in the beauty industry as I’m a self-confessed beauty junkie. I would have learnt massage and reflexology, as I love having these treatments and believe in the healing powers of touch.
Q: Where have you visited in your life that took your breath away?
A: I’ve been really lucky to tracks to some beautiful places. Seeing the Taj Mahal in my early twenties and learning about the history was very special, equally visiting Thailand, and the beaches of the Caribbean always take my breathe away.
Q: What’s the one achievement you’re most proud of?
A: I am proud of the longevity of my career, and of being able to work in a few different areas within the industry. The TV side I love, being involved in radio also for the last eight years was a big achievement and modelling alongside designing jewellery!
Q: Who would you be most star-struck to meet in real life?
A: I met Stevie Wonder and felt completely lost for words! He’s such an incredible artist and someone I’ve always loved listening to. I think Madonna would also leave me a little flustered!
Q: What are your top tips for developing your own brand?
A: I think having a strong sense of self and style is important. Also knowing what works well, and keeping your eyes on what’s happening and developing with different trends and materials. Take your time, don’t get disheartened if it’s slow to begin with, and always have faith.
Q: If you could travel back in time, which era would you visit and what would you do?
A: I’ve always loved the 20’s. Such a glamorous, elegant and decadent time. Think the Great Gatsby – all those wonderful parties!
Q: What three things would you bring to a desert island?
A: My partner George, sunscreen and a good pillow.
Q:If you were facing a zombie apocalypse, which three QVC presenters would be on your survival team?
A: I couldn’t possibly choose!
