Meet the team
We are a family-run jewellers specialising in design-led, fine jewellery. Find Kirsty and Hattie hand making our jewellery in the Workshop at the Sloop Craft Market; and Ray running our jewellery shop in the centre of St Ives.
Kirsty is an award-winning, fully trained and qualified jeweller. She studied Jewellery and Silversmithing for 5 years at the Birmingham School of Jewellery in the heart of the Jewellery Quarter. She has worked within the industry for commercial manufacturers and has a good reputation as a skilled designer and maker. Kirsty has studied a range of techniques; traditional and new and can offer her skills in designing and making unique pieces, remodelling old jewellery.
Raymond trained as a graphic designer at the same time Kirsty was studying in Birmingham. Kirsty managed to drag him back to Cornwall and since then he has thrown himself into the Cornish way of life. He now is a Bard of Gorsedh Kernow (Golowyn Lowen) and also, the St Ives town 'Mace Bearer'. If you are lucky you may see him during traditional St Ives Town parades displaying his wide, infectious smile.
Hattie is Kirsty’s surfer-girl younger sister. She has been an apprentice jeweller for 2 years and has a natural talent for the arts and attention to detail that is second to none. She is a surf and SUP board instructor too so you will find her on Porthmeor Beach teaching in rain or shine. She reminds us to stay healthy daily, encouraging us to run on the spot if we're cold and have a dip in the sea if we're glum.
Hugo is our resident Health & Wellness officer, offering daily cuddles & keeping us in shape out walking the Cornish coast. He loves attention and entertaining our workshop guests!
