Donna Laine - "The Home of Antique Fine Jewellery" is Donna's dream come true, after having a baby later in life ( she reckons she won the lottery, having her daughter)
The decision was did she go back to work or follow her heart and after experiencing such joy at being a mother, she knew she wanted to work with beautiful things daily and be part of others cinderella story ( YES ! its fit's echoes in the shop frequently and another special memory is created .)
Being part of a jewellery family allowed Donna a unique insight to the wondrous world of creativity and delight that jewellery has.
From repairs to new creations to beautiful designs, is a privilege Donna gets to experience everyday, while surrounded by peoples stories and journey's.
A real people person, Donna loves working in the team and being part of her customers dreams, events and stories.
The Flying Emerald
"The best story so far was a very nervous customer hand picking his Emerald for his future Fiancee, he held the tweezers too hard the Emerald pinged out of this hand hit the ceiling and landed in Donna's Hat on the top shelf, no mean feat when you see how high then ceiling's are in the shop. Needless to say that was the stone he wanted, we made the ring and she said 'YES'." and she loved the story of the flying Emerald!
