Hi Carolyn,
Just a quick email to let you know the pendant was very well received by my wife, she loves it and it looks fantastic! You have done an excellent job and I am very pleased with the result. My wife is especially pleased with the unique nature of the piece and the way it symbolises our special day. It suits her very well too. 
I'll be sure to recommend you to anyone looking for locally made jewellery and unique items!

Customer Testimonial Mel Vonhoff

I have recently had six customised Jewellery pieces made by Carolyn and I am very pleased with her work. I had three rings and three pendants designed by Carolyn using Agates that were cut and polished by my late Grandfather so the stones had a great deal of sentimental value. I could not be happier with the care and attention Carolyn showed in her work and communicated with me on a regular basis to let me know the progress of each piece. Photos were also supplied and she was very prompt and helpful with the dispatching of the finished items. I would highly recommend Carella Jewellers to any potential customers. Carolyn has created something special that my Mother, sister and myself will treasure always :)

Customer Testimonial from Karen Fern

Hi Carolyn
I would just like to say how happy I am with all my jewellery I have purchased from you.
The pendant you made for my 60 th Birthday was very special to me. I love the way you
surprised me with the 60 on the back of it. I can highly recommend you Carolyn for any special pieces
or in fact any work needed. The time you give , the sketches you do and not just one
sketch you keep going until it is what your clients want. I have seen first hand the work you create
and most of all the time involved which you don’t get paid for. You are a very loving, caring person
and understand what your clients want and do not try to change their ideas in any way.
If you know their ideas are not going to work you explain fully the reason why.
I fully intend to keep purchasing from you in the future.
A very happy client.
Karen Fern

We recently celebrated our 40th Wedding Anniversary and to mark this very special occasion we commissioned Carolyn to make a birthstone pendant. From the very first meeting Carolyn was fantastic to deal with, she arrived at our home with the design drawn out and showed us what it could look like with the sample birthstones she brought with her. Carolyn communicated with us regularly with progress reports and delivered the pendant on our Anniversary Day. We are absolutely thrilled with the finished product and would not hesitate to purchase more jewellery from Carella Jewellers.Robyn Sawley
