Nearly 2 months have passed since VRD Jewels was closed following a personal emergency that left me without a workspace. Some of you may recall my recent move to New York. Unfortunately, soon after my arrival I discovered that my new live/work space was poorly managed and unfit for living. To make a long story short, this issue resulted in my immediate move back to Florida and the loss of equipment and workspace. I’m glad to report that I have a new living & suitable workspace back in Florida, and I’ve reopened VRD Jewels with a minimal amount of items to start. Each day I make progress in rebuilding my workspace.
While my shop was out of commission I stayed busy making plans for a new and improved VRD Jewels. I’m eternally grateful for all of the support and patience my customers have shown me during this time, and I’ve taken each piece of feedback into consideration. All of my jewels are now made with thicker metals and shipped in sturdy corrugated boxes to prevent any damage during shipment. I will be introducing some exciting new techniques and collections in the coming months, so stay tuned & keep checking back to the shop!
