To all my gorgeous customers, friends, staff and family,
The last six years have been an amazing journey. I have had so much support, loyalty and love come through the doors at my quaint little Mt Lawley Store.
In the beginning when it was just myself, you (my customers) made a little community, a family for me. You have supported me not only by loving my product but simply by coming in to visit and letting me be apart of your life story. I have treasured getting to know you all personally and hearing about your families and adventures.
Then, as Tayha Designs grew I have had the pleasure of working with one of my best friends, Natalia, by my side. She took the shop and the customers on as her own and made career and a place for herself in this little Astor Arcade. She was definitely thrown in the deep end when she started with me and she took it all in her stride, I couldn’t be more grateful. You are a beautiful person Natalia.
From this small beginnings the shop just grow. I have had a fantastic group of people working with me along the way. Monica, Hannah, Sabah, Ben, Erin, Elizabeth, Hayley, Wendy (Mum) and Tamuy you have all added your own touch to Tayha Designs. You have all helped me see different ways of approaching business. It amazed me the dedication and hard work you all put into everything you did at Tayha Designs. For a small shop full of girls (plus Ben) it has been a fantastic work environment. I thank each and everyone of you. I also want to thank all the jewellers that have exhibited in my little gallery, the people of Mt Lawley have really appreciate your unique talents.
Life is full of adventures and challenges and my Mt Lawley store has been both. I honestly feel like I have achieved everything I could of hoped for. Of course I could not have done this with out the love, support and encouragement from my family. Thank you Bree for helping me open, thank you Mum for working for me when all my staff left were on maternity leave. Thank you to Alex for putting up with my long hours and thank you to the rest of Alex and my family for being there as always. And also thank you to my friends for always being around to help and support.
As most of you know last year I started a family of my own, as did Natalia, Erin and Hayley (almost, due any day now). We have all had (or are having) little girls and with this new chapter in our lives I have decided it is time to change the direction of Tayha Designs a little. No I am not closing up and disappearing, I just couldn’t do that, I love it too much.
I have decided to let the shop front go. I will be putting a bit of time into the web site for a refresh and revamp as Tayha Design will run online and by appointment. I will still provide all the same services but I will be more flexible, being able to come to you and provide a really personalised jewellery experience. I would still love to be your jeweller and help with designing and creating those cherished pieces of jewellery you will love forever.
Once again I just can not thank you all enough and I hope I can continue working with you all. Please don’t hesitate contacting me through the web site, email or facebook I look forward to working with you all soon.
Lots of Love and Kind Regards
