I have worked with the JBD team since opening at Annandale in 2006.  I have been married for nearly 30 years and my husband and I are blessed with one daughter and two sons with one still in high school. I am a big supporter of our local sporting teams and enjoy going to the games.

Favourite quote

There is no way to be a perfect mother and a million ways to be a good one.

What I love about the jewellery industry

I love how emotive jewellery is. Helping customers restore an heirloom piece back to a wearable piece of jewellery. I also enjoy getting to know couples from engagement through to their wedding and then seeing them start their own family.

JOY KERN | DIAMOND CONSULTANT

A little about me

I am a mum to a 2 year old cheeky little girl. I would love to learn how to knit (just to do a blanket). I believe that you should always wear a smile, as it can make someone’s day different (in a good way)

Favourite quote

Don’t judge a book by it’s cover.

What I love about the jewellery industry

To see all the different pieces of jewellery and to create a piece that I can layby for myself. But most of all to help people achieve the design that they are after or help them select a gift for a loved one. It is really nice when customers come back and tell us how much they love it. Makes my day! To know someone is happy with the help that is given to them.
