I am now figuring out the new normal, much like all of you, for what's possible in these difficult times. I am still in the jewellery studio and working on various commissions. As you might expect, all my suppliers have now shut down until there is light at the end of the tunnel, which has restricted what I can make and send out. I have been reluctant to commit to any form of deadline at the moment, as there are just so many unknowns, and I really don't want to disappoint. No one needs additional worry or concern at the moment.
However, there are still options! I have put together an online collection of contemporary jewellery that is finished, in stock and ready to send out to you. I have listed the size and finish of each piece, and I'm trying to add a little film to each item to help give you a better idea of the piece.
Due to the current restrictions that I am very keen to adhere to I am going to the Post Office only once per week, when we do our food shop. However, I will try to be as flexible as I can.
All of the pieces I send are packaged really nicely, and I often get lovely feedback to say how it was such a lovely parcel to open. This has become even more important recently, as I am now being asked to post directly to family and friends. I have even been asked to add a handwritten note wishing them a very happy birthday on behalf of my client!
