It's time for episode 19 of our podcast, the Small Business Sessions.
Enterprise Nation Member Gabriella Turner discovered an Aladdin's Cave when visiting her grandmother in Italy who wanted to buy her a graduation present.
She fell in love the 150-year-old workshop operated by a third generation goldsmith which inspired her to set up fine jewellery brand, Annellino.
Gabriella's 18 carat gold products are now made in the workshop using a technique followed by Renaissance sculptors.
Listen to this session for an inspiring discussion about supporting artisan producers, the importance of outsourcing to experts and how to stay motivated when working on your own.
