(last updated June 2021)
I just wanted to let you know about the measures I'm taking to keep both you and me safe through the pandemic. I am following hand-washing and other sanitation guidelines in my home studio. Even though at the present moment, we are starting to open up again in the UK, I am very limited in the social contact I have with others and I have also had both my vaccinations now (thank you NHS!)
My existing paper and jewellery supplies were purchased before the pandemic, and any new jewellery supplies will be set aside for 4 days before opening and then disinfected. (Actually, all jewellery components apart from chains, earring hooks and jump rings are also routinely heat treated, either by being exposed to an open flame - firing silver clay pieces and soldering/annealing copper and sterling silver - and by being boiled in a silver pickle cleaning solution after soldering).
All orders I post out go out from my home using Royal Mail's Click & Drop online service which means I can still obtain proof of postage/tracking information but can just drop the order off quickly at the post office at a quiet time or I order a Royal mail collection directly from my house, both of which cut down my contact with people.
I will obviously keep monitoring the situation and let you know of any changes on this page. Please feel free to get in touch via the contact page if you'd like to ask anything. Thank you for supporting my little shop, stay safe!
