Yay! Let’s go shopping!
There is no greater pleasure in life than buying jewellery & making supplies (well it’s certainly up there!) But we know it’s not always easy to find just what you need. Never fear we have put together this guide on where and how to source your jewellery supplies (and we are always adding to it so if you have any suggestions please do let us know by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org).
And do let the shops know we sent you, because then they will like us and maybe send out free diamonds!
Well maybe not but no harm in trying.
p.s. please note we are not affiliated with most of these companies, they are ones we have used or that have been recommended by other jewellers in our community.
