Our message to Santa – Ask for LJS gift vouchers…

you wont be disappointed!

We often find that its this time of year when our loved ones need a little push in the right direction when deciding what to get for the holiday season. Don’t be afraid to take matters into your own hands to avoid getting another one of those old knitted jumpers you never wear. We have made it super easy, just print out the picture above and leave it where they will see it – wink, wink. Or you could send it to them in an email or even as a facebook message.

Building a Website for your Jewellery Business: Blog Post

Take a look at our recent blog post about websites for your jewellery business…Whenever someone tells me about a jewellery business my first point of call is to Google it and take a look at their website. These days if you are not online then you practically don’t exist and it is such an effective way to engage customers and promote and sell your work that its vital we get it right. Click here to visit the blog.
