Bec Clarke is founder of online luxury jewellery site, astleyclarke.com, specialising in precious and semi-precious jewellery. We caught up with her to talk inspiration and her experiences of mentoring ahead of our 2011 campaign.

What fired your ambition to start your own business?
I was brought up in a non-conventional environment, filled with Everest climbers, political activists and artists! I was encouraged to take risks and follow my own path. I had a desire to build something tangible so Astleyclarke.com was born.
