Please arrive 5-10 minutes early so you can complete our waiver and get situated at your workstation. Temperatures will be taken at the door and you will also need to sign a waiver. Hand sanitizer will be at each jeweler's bench for you to use as often as you like.
  • LOCATION: Our address is 100 E. Cleveland St, Lafayette, CO 80026. Please use Google Maps (not Apple Maps) for specific directions.
