Or lack thereof.

I’m sure I don’t need to tell you about the problems facing the world right now. Many areas are in lockdown, and here in the UK, we aren’t any different. While I think that jewellery – especially mine – is pretty essential, it isn’t right to burden mail-service workers with non-essential supplies, or worth the risk to my family to keep trotting off to the post office. I have therefore taken the difficult decision to put Rose Bay Jewellery on hold for a little while until we see how things work out.

However, that doesn’t mean that I’m not doing anything. I am still making lovely jewellery, and I am working on something new for when we can be together again. In the meantime, I will be making the odd post here, plus I have my Twitter account where I post links to interesting articles and repost daft and quirky stuff, too. We could all do with a little light relief right now. On Instagram, there is no point posting pictures of products that aren’t on sale, so instead, I’m posting other sorts of pictures – most notably, images of our new rescue cat. She is settling in quite nicely, thank you very much for asking.

Actually, this reminds me of something I meant to mention. In the UK, and probably where you are, too, animal re-homes have been put on hold because nobody is supposed to go out to view them, and charity shops attached to these re-homing centres have been closed for the time being. Since these shops are the centres’ main (and sometimes only )source of income, they are suddenly bereft of funds.

If you have a pet sanctuary close to you, and you are so inclined, please could you check out their local websites or media pages to see if you can help? It’s not just about the cash – some need food or other supplies, and some just want media help to spread the word out.

Anyway, talk soon and please stay safe.
