Jo works closely with her family and friends, and ropes in their talents when needed; her eldest daughter Aoife is an established model for the brand and second daughter Kerrie Ann is ready to soon shoulder that role as well! Jo`s sister Ann Marie is a helping hand when it comes to selecting the gems, with her being a fully qualified gemologist. Since the initial launch in 2016, Jo`s brand has gone from strength to strength and she is now represented by large national and international retailers in both Europe, USA and on the Orient. Only lately, she began a partnership with South African Airlines which is proving to be very successful and she is thrilled with the recognition her hard work receives around the globe.
Jo Harpur Jewellery began as so many businesses do, due to a childhood fascination or connection to a certain thing, a feeling or a memory, and Johanna`s love for sparkle and shine began when she, as a little girl, breathless with anticipation, dressed herself up in her mother`s coats and adorned herself with her pearls. I can very well understand how this prompted a lifelong love for beauty and elegance in the young girl`s mind.
