Staying true to the meaning of a family run business, you’ll have the pleasure of meeting (hearing) the whole family when you come to visit us. At the moment, the children love being in a big open space learning the very basic of jewellery making. With their own space at the store, they have the comfort of being at their second home. The budding artists, designers, craftspeople, are with us most days and learn valuable lessons from photography to setting to cleaning/dressing showcases.
