Béatrice commented: “Being shortlisted in the Nectar Business Small Business Awards is a great honour and the team is so proud. Since the beginning from my kitchen table, we have put much hard work and energy into Merci Maman and this achievement is a dream come true. I am very proud of my team’s creativity and consistency in delivering high quality and meaningful personalised gifts.”

Her business offers a contemporary selection of bespoke jewellery including personalised necklaces, bracelets, cufflinks and rings. Each piece is hand-engraved, adding a personal and sentimental touch.
