Our Cornish Jewellery Workshop – Behind the Scenes

All of our pieces are handmade by our team in our Cornish jewellery workshop. Have a little peek behind the scenes.

Justin Duance Cornish Jewellery Workshop

 

In 2015 we moved from our Newlyn net loft workshop to this newly converted old pumphouse.  It’s a stones throw away from the National Trust’s Trengwainton Garden and next to two reservoirs (perfect for lunchtime walks!). Consequently, it’s no surprise that ‘Trengwainton’ is Cornish for ‘Home of Springs’, and our pumphouse used to supply water to all of Penzance. Fast forward a few decades and here we are, making and sending handmade jewellery across the globe.

While it isn’t a shop, customers are welcome to book an appointment to visit us. Visiting gives you the opportunity to see and try on a wide selection of our collections, in addition to seeing where the jewellery is made.

We regularly have visits to the workshop from customers who have travelled from around the world, looking for something a little different. For this we will always feel grateful and humbled.

However, not everyone can come to see us and the jewellery in person. We’re pleased to be able to share a few of these behind the scenes snaps captured by Farwood Photography. After Ant visited us to commission his wedding ring, we knew he would be the perfect photographer for the task. He and his wife Harriet did a wonderful job of capturing the workshop with the insight of visiting as customers previously.

If you would like to visit our Cornish jewellery workshop get in touch so we can book you in. Please note that we are closed on bank holidays and weekends, and between 1-2pm for lunch.  If visiting us isn’t an option, fear not! We are very adept at working long-distance – simply give us a call or send us an email with any questions!
