I never knew how hard it was to tie a ribbon with nitrile gloves on, but I am learning!

In my line of work, being extremely mindful of surfaces, and taking precautions in general, is part of the daily routine: protecting airways from particles in such processes as sanding and polishing, protecting skin and lungs from chemicals used in making jewellery – these are a daily reality.

This is why I can say with confidence that I am taking every precaution when shipping during the COVID19 world pandemic. Halifax, Nova Scotia, is still a fairly safe place. Regardless, I have put very strict measures in place to help #FlattenTheCurve.

Here are the specifics:

Personally, I am extremely cautious: I only go into public if absolutely necessary. I wear gloves when I enter a store, which I immediately discard when I leave the store. I disinfect items I bring home, or leave them untouched for 3 days (the curation of time COVID19 can live on glass or plastic). Of course I wash my hands extremely well and often, and disinfect surfaces which are touched often. I have dramatically placed awareness to and changed my habits regarding touching my face, sneezing, etc.

Any jewellery is disinfected before it is sent out, and I wear gloves for packing up orders.


I have sent my staff home.

I no longer allow studio visit. However, I do ‘see’ people for consultations via video call to discuss custom projects or to answer questions. You can book an appointment here.
