We hope this update finds you well in these challenging times and we thought it would be nice to let you know this month about what we’ve been up to here, whilst we are on lockdown too, as well as telling you about our special April offers for pearl restringing, and jewellery inspection and service.
We are still very much open for business and continuing to create beautiful jewellery.
As our jewellery business is based on our farm, we are fortunate to be able to carry on with business as usual. Peter is enjoying working in the workshop creating new pieces and commissions, our office is still open, we are checking messages and emails daily, and we are here for you should you have any questions or queries or would like to speak to us about a new commission.
As we mentioned before, the current gold value is higher than it has been in over 10 years, so why not take this time to go through your old jewellery and send it to us so that we can sell it for scrap for you and turn it into something wonderful and new?
We will give you 100% value of the scrap gold which is unique amongst jewellers as most take a fee or commission for this service. What better way to cheer yourself up?
Special offers for April
Pearl Restringing and service – £33.00
This month we are offering pearl restringing at £33.00 (£5.00 off our normal price).
Sandra will personally:
- Inspect all pearls or cut stones and clasp
- Fully clean
- Hand knot using high grade pure silk
Spring clean – inspection and service – £55.00
Now that the sun is finally making an appearance, this is the perfect time to give your jewellery some care by having it inspected and serviced, and restored to premium condition.
This service will be for any rings and necklaces but we are particularly thinking of rings.
Sandra will personally:
- Check all settings
- Re-polish, removing all scratches
- Fully clean
The cost will be a fixed £55 unless we find something that we need to draw your attention to. This is a really excellent time of year to get things sorted out, and customers are always so delighted (and a bit shocked) when they see how fabulous their rings look afterwards!
To benefit from either of these offers, kindly pop us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org so that we can book you in.
Please post your jewellery to us at:
Mount Carlees Farm, Ruan Major, Helston, Cornwall. TR12 7 LL

As many of you know, we live and work on a 48 acre organic farm on the Lizard Peninsula in Cornwall. We have been watching the transformation from winter to spring this week as the dry weather and sunshine have finally arrived! The daffodils, primroses and wildflowers are all starting to add much missed colour, and it’s been great to spend time outside working on the land.
A new polytunnel has just been delivered meaning we have been very busy planting vegetables so that we can be self sufficient and not need to visit supermarkets. Our goats provide us with milk for butter and cheese, and our free roaming chickens are laying eggs. And speaking of goats, we’ve had some exciting news this week…
The world may have stopped but mother nature hasn’t and we are delighted to welcome two healthy little kids who were born on Tuesday night – Ollie and Joy (mum, Amber, is doing well!).
We now have 13 goats in our little herd of rare breed Golden Guernseys.
