COMPLETE BEGINNERS JEWELLERY CLASS

.

COVID-19 UPDATE
I am reaching out to tell you I am thinking of you and sending wishes for good health and wellbeing during this unprecedented time. The most important thing right now and for the foreseeable future is the collective physical and mental health of people all over the globe. Nothing else can or will be prioritised. To make sure that I do what’s best for everyone I am monitoring trusted sources like our government and the dhhs to adapt quickly and correctly.
In line with Australian Government direction, due to COVID-19, jewellery classes have been postponed.
I am so grateful for your support and hope that the community continue to safely participate with local business however they can.
