Wow - what a crazy 12 months! Thanks to all of our customers new and old for supporting our new jewellery studio. The workshop has been flat out with repairs, remodelling and custom designed pieces. Coming into Christmas is the busiest time of year for us and we have decided that a pop up shop would work well for our clientele so we will be holding our first one on December the 17th 2016 from 9am - 6pm. We now have Eftpos facilities and lots of new stock available. Should be fun!
WOW! Thanks so much for your support everyone! MLJ is off to a fine start thanks to you all. We are so flippin excited to introduce our official ambassador for Matt Loretan Jewellery...Mrs Kate Miller! Also known as Kada, and if you are a music fan you will most likely be familiar with her beautiful voice, her debut album "The Unknown" is available from iTunes and it is amazing. Our paths crossed with Kate and her (at the time fiancee) now husband Barney Miller, who is a Sawtell legend in his own right, earlier this year when we collaborated on a special custom designed piece for Kate to wear on their AH.MAZING wedding day.
Kate graciously agreed to be our spokeswoman so last month we held a photo shoot at the new Cellar Lounge Bar inside the Pier Hotel Coffs Harbour and.....well some magic was made! Honestly we could have all gone home after the first shot was taken but we had some more champagne to get through so ...... here are some pics from the day.
Thanks to Nik and She for dressing Kate, Alissa from Luke Artistry for the make up, Kate Kelly for the hair and Kate A'Beckett for some of the most amazing photography we've ever seen (and a special thanks to Indi for her photographic assistance on the day).
Love Matt and Jodi xx
Some of you may have heard whispers and now we can confirm that we have opened a new jewellery studio in Coffs Harbour! The first of it's kind in the area, our studio is not a retail shop - it is a studio designed to provide our clients with a space to meet in a comfortable, private setting and take the opportunity to work with us to create their custom designed jewellery pieces.
You can find us at Level 1, 6/22 Isles Drive Coffs Harbour. We are situated above John Logan Entertainment, in the building next door to WillAid. We love our new urban / industrial surroundings, being up on the first level gives us beautiful natural light, privacy and security and there is plenty of parking nearby!
Our showroom is designed to allow our clients to work closely with Matt during the design process and select the materials and stones they wish to incorporate into their pieces. Furnished with comfortable lounges, drawing desks and soon our very own bar! It is sure to become a place where we will enjoy entertaining our clients.
Matt then creates the pieces in his state of the art, brand new workshop, attached to the showroom. The workshop has been designed to allow Matt to hold workshops for those interested in learning how the jewellery making process works! Couples are invited to attend private 'make your own wedding ring' experiences and become an active part of the process. This is the first time such a thing has been offered on the mid north coast area and is proving to be very popular with our clients.

We still have a way to go before everything is finished, however the workshop is up and running and new pieces have already started coming out of it. There is a high demand for appointments with Matt so contact us soon if you think you would like something before Christmas. We look forward to seeing both old and new clients at the studio. Call or email us to make a time to pop by.
Our new website is now live, with ready made products to go into our online store In October.
Finally, we wish to thank all of our friends, family, tradespeople and clients that have helped us make this happen. We appreciate all of you for the help and support that you have given to us over the past few months.
