Just a quick note to address a few questions about certain small businesses re-opening in Ontario as of May 19, 2020.
I am still holding virtual appointments as a first step to begin any custom work, and view jewellery that is for sale on my website. We can safely and distantly look at jewellery together this way. When I feel it is easier to start meeting clients in person again at my shared studio, I will open up an in-person schedule on my website. It will be mandatory to complete a phone or virtual consultation prior to any in person meetings, through the summer. Timelines for custom jewellery will be 2-3 months, unless otherwise discussed. I do not like to rush, and I do not wish to create any anxiety amongst my sub-contractors, team members, as their safety is just as important as yours as clients, emotionally and physically, as the world prepares for a re-boot after closures due to Covid-19.
Thank you for your patience. This isn’t going to be easy, but with collaboration, cooperation and understanding of our limits as small business owners, and our desire to keep everyone safe in our community against Covid-19, this is how things will be for the next little while.
