News from the workshop
We thought to share with you one of the commissions Peter is currently working on. These beautiful handmade 18ct links will be used to create a stunning English oak leaf necklace. We can’t wait for our customer to see the finished piece. More on this as it progresses!
This is how it all starts – selecting sapphires in natural light for a customer’s commission.

Kind words from a happy customer on receiving her Paraiba Tourmaline and diamond ring…
‘My amazing ring arrived this morning. I am more than pleased with it. Please thank Peter for his fantastic craftsmanship and thank you for getting it to me for my birthday and all your help throughout. Already I notice the change of colour in the stone in different lighting love it. Thanks a million.’, Patricia L.
Upcycling and spring cleaning
The current gold value is still very high, 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 against an order, which is unique amongst jewellers as most take a fee or commission for this service.
What better way to cheer yourself up?

News from the farm
We got very inspired with planting trees on the farm this year, introducing lots of blossom for the bees. Here we are planting a red oak tree while our big old boy (called Oak!) came to watch.
We had lots of help from WWOOFers (WWOOFing stands for ‘World Wide Opportunities on Organic Farms.’ The volunteer or ‘WWOOFer,’ gets the opportunity to spend time in an organic farm, learn what it’s like, how it works and what sustainable agriculture is all about) who were still able to come here and work during lockdown. Here they are planting cherry trees.
