Ex­pan­sion for jew­ellery busi­ness

Yorkshire Post - Business - - COMMERCIAL PROPERTY -

HAND­MADE JEW­ELLERY busi­ness Iain Henderson De­signs has ex­panded af­ter un­der­go­ing a £30,000 re­fur­bish­ment.

The Bin­g­ley-based premises re­opens this month af­ter a trans­for­ma­tion to cre­ate a new stu­dio, of­fice and work­shop space.

The com­pany, which makes per­son­alised jew­ellery on site, has been grow­ing since set­ting up in 1996 and needed ex­tra space as well as a more cus­tomer-friendly lay­out.

The pur­pose-built stu­dio, in Ghyll Wood Drive, orig­i­nally housed the pub­lic area and the work­shop on one floor above the of­fice and a sin­gle garage.

The re­fur­bish­ment has seen the ground floor con­verted into a new stu­dio and shop. The first floor now houses the of­fice and work­shop en­abling the com­pany to set up a new ring-clean­ing ser­vice.

Iain Henderson said: “The stu­dio evolved over time and our busi­ness has grown re­ally quickly, be­yond our ex­pec­ta­tions. We’d be­come so busy, es­pe­cially on a Satur­day, that it could get very noisy when work was go­ing on – which was not ideal for new cus­tomers try­ing to talk to us about their ideas. On the other hand we still wanted peo­ple to be able to watch the work pro­gress­ing,”
