Furthermore, we had a small workshop in the basement, in which we made jewelry and other accessories with our mother and grandmother from an early age on. Ultimately, that is exactly what moved us to found the brand: creativity. At the time we founded LLR Studios, we were both at a point where that was exactly what was missing in our jobs. We had been playing with the idea for a long time and received support from our family from the very beginning. And after a family vacation in Mallorca, we decided to take this step.
In the beginning we set up LLR Studios alongside our jobs, developed designs and tried a lot of different pieces in order to see what works well. Finally, after six months, we took all of our courage, quit our jobs and got involved with LLR Studios full-time. Our first collection went online at the beginning of 2019 - that was very exciting, but it was definitely worth it.
Right from the start, we saw personal customer contact as the highest priority and organized regular events so that we could be available personally. Of course, this is currently not possible due to Corona. There is still the possibility to arrange a virtual appointment or to take part in our virtual events to find out more about our jewelry. We really value keeping customer contact as close and personal as possible and the virtual meetings with our customers give us the opportunity to continue to do so.
Being a family business is great. Nevertheless: In a family everyone knows their place, in a joint company you start all over again and have to find your place in the beginning. This can of course cause difficulties and it is sometimes hard to separate personal from private. Clear rules help us in everyday life, but no matter what happens, we know that we can always rely on each other. That is also the nice thing about it: We just know each other inside out and can always show consideration for each other.
