Well, 2020 has been something else hasn’t it! Here’s a little bit about how Porth Jewellery has adapted to these times …
At present, I have no fairs or markets booked for Christmas which is unusual. I know that many people want to see, touch and try on jewellery before buying. It is now possible to see my Cornish Seaglass Jewellery in Falmouth.
Inspire Makers opened up at the end of lock-down and is located at the top of the High Street in Falmouth. This unique shop sells a range of items from jewellery to lamps; pictures to ceramics and has been carefully curated by the owner. It is well worth a visit and a chance to see Porth Jewellery ‘in real life’! Hopefully, in the future, the makers will also be holding workshops here too.
If you are looking to stock Porth Jewellery in the run-up to Christmas outside of Falmouth then please get in touch.
Tuesday – Saturday
5 High Street
If you can’t make it to Falmouth, my work is often photographed from various angles to try and show as much information for you as possible. Seaglass can look different in photos depending on the light and time of day. If you contact me, I can always send short videos via whats app so that you can see the seaglass colours more clearly and how they change in different light.
The majority of the pieces I have been making in recent months are bespoke orders. When you order a bespoke piece, we will chat about seaglass colours, shapes and provenance and you will be kept up to date with the progress.
There are some bits of information you will need such as ring size or chain length for a necklace.
I aim to produce pieces within two weeks however it is normally quicker that that. If you have a specific deadline then I can see what I can do to accommodate you.
Seaglass beach combing
During lockdown it was hard to go beach combing outside of Falmouth and as a result a lot of my recent work has been using pieces of seaglass from beaches I can walk to – mainly Swanpool, Gyllyngvase, Castle, Tuke, Pendennis and Maenporth. As I have been trying to keep as safe as possible I have also avoided visiting further afield whilst Cornwall welcomed back tourists. If you are looking for seaglass from a particular beach I do have collections that we can look at and hopefully I will be able to go further afield again now the schools are back and places are quieter.
Workshops are now back with Covid safety procedures in place. There are several dates now advertised for the Seaglass Sessions workshops and bookings can be made through the website. Stacking Ring workshops will be added too.
If there are 2 of you interested in a workshop then we can arrange a date and advertise the other places. If there are 3 or 4 of you then you can book your own private event. Please contact me if you would like to do this.
