This week’s guest is Lauren McDonald, founder and director of the successful website LYNOTT Jewellery. A recent graduate of MSc Management Consultancy at UCD Smurfit business school, Lauren decided when the pandemic hit in 2020 to start her own business while she was also applying for jobs elsewhere which brought her to launch LYNOTT Jewellery, a Dublin based jewellery and accessories store.

LYNOTT’s unique selection of hand-sourced pieces are designed to brighten your everyday. From understated stacked rings and gold-plated chains to bold statement earrings, each piece is a modern take on a classic jewellery-box staple. LYNOTT jewellery is where modern meets classic and designed for day-to-day wear.

James sits down with Lauren McDonald to discuss her career journey with the launch and development of LYNOTT Jewellery and how she dealt with the obstacles of launching a new business in the middle of a global pandemic.
