As Jerrinice was working at Alona's she began to have more responsibility for the brand and understanding of how bringing a brand to life works.
After leaving Alona's she started working for a Jewellery shop Toko in Richmond. This is where she was fully able to understand how a Jewellery business runs.
It was then Jerrinice was able to run one of the Jewellery shops in Richmond. She was responsible for the displays, stock, repairs and making the sure the shop was running smoothly and looking perfect.
