Help out

Jewellers is currently run by one crazy tree changer going by the name of Rohan. I also run High Country Web, a small business and community focused web and tech studio. If you’d like to become part of Jewellers in any shape or form, I would love your assistance. Currently it would be in a volunteer role but happy to discuss perks. Have I mentioned how much I love to barter?
