When I was able to show myself as piercer professionalI was just 16 years old and I was in the last secondary year.

- Chantal J (Mom)
24 hours later, we had found our first commercial premises and signed a 2 year old lease, in the city center of Drummondville. After 3 months of renovation, layout of the local and a complete devotion of the family to complete the project, we were willing to receive the first customers. Opening date of the Adrenaline studio - Drummondville? October 1, 2015
At the time, relatives, family and friends simply replied that it came from either that it happens. Although some thought that, without doing a thorough market study, it was doomed to failure and that my desire to succeed was rather risky.
The evolution of adrenaline
If someone had warned me that I would have to work 14 hours a day, 7 days a week, investing any economy, and put an end to all social life, I may have thought twice before starting us , me and my mom, in this adventure. PTo be quite correct, a dozen peopledid it and I still did to my head. I imagine that's what makes the desire to succeed makes sense.
The first 8 months, I admount a second full-time job, allowing you to start and grow the business. Meanwhile, Studio Adrenaline - Drummondville Gradually becomes an urban jewelery. Little by little, brand by brand, in addition to drilling: ring, bracelet, necklace, earrings, watches, bore jewelery were now offered in store.
Studio Adrenaline - Drummondville becomes jewelry the duo.
As of January 15, 2017, it's official, Studio Adrenaline - Drummondville give way to Jewelery the duo. I still remember very well a little strange feeling and the thrill that I felt by getting home, after making the official announcement of change. A mixture of intense happiness, excitement, stress, anxiety and fear of cracking at any time: I was now part, with the company, the big family of Quebec jeweleries.
Mom (covers all the hours of the store), dad, brothers, aunts, cousins, best friend, everyone has put her hand with dough one day or the other. Teaches, furniture, event, place the many new displays, orders, accounting ... No time for rest.
The end of an adventure.
On February 8, 2018, the big heart, with hard-to-describe emotions, I unexpectedly announce the jewelry closure the duo. An interesting offer, too interesting to be refused offered me. After reflection, it was the perfect opportunity to forge my experience and therefore, a good decision.
A dose of incredible love until the end of this month was felt. Some cried, others took us in their arms, others made the detour to greet us and wish us good luck in our future projects.
Everything is liquidated. We left our 2m house on March 1, 2018.

And this is howwas born.
