If you are anything like me you have been spending your lockdown binge-watching every series you come across. One day when scrolling BBC iPlayer I came across Normal People and well I'm so glad I did. After watching the whole thing in an afternoon the love I had for Connell was like nothing I had felt before, and THE CHAIN, WOW!
I wasn't surprised when I saw the wave of adoration on instagram for Normal People, specifically #connellschain and thought I would give the people what they want. At first it was a bit of a joke and I thought I won't sell any and if I do it would be good to donate some of the proceeds to the Scottish Association for Mental Health (SAMH) as I'm sure a lot of people like me were triggered by some of the storylines that were shown in the show.
It wasn't long before GlasgowLive came across the story and that's when the madness started. My instagram inbox was going wild, the visitors to my site shot up and EVERYONE wanted a Connell chain.
I still can't believe the response I had for a simple silver chain and I'm so grateful for all the orders because
Corona Virus has had a big impact on my business and well its a struggle
I was able to donate so much more than I dreamt to SAMH
Having raised £300 for SAMH and still processing orders the listing for the chain has been removed from the website for the time being. BUT I'm still getting so many messages about it so once all current orders are out it MIGHT make another appearance.
Thank you again if you have ordered a Connell chain, its means so much if you don't have it yet I can't wait for you to get them! AND remember if you are sharing your purchase on Instagram be sure to tag me @janeharrisonjewellery I LOVE seeing you channel your inner Connell!
PS Apologies for the GIF heavy post, I can't resist.
