Closed in January. Re-opening early February.
Porth Jewellery seaglass is collected from beaches, harbours and estuaries in Cornwall and sometimes further afield. Seaglass has been part of the ocean, tumbled, smoothed and changed with time and tide. Every piece is therefore completely unique and cannot be replicated.
Each piece is carefully recorded so Laura can trace it back to its beach for provenance. Sometimes her jewellery is chosen for the colour, shape, and size, or purely for the beach on which it was discovered. All Porth Jewellery creations are inspired by the ocean.
After many happy hours ‘playing’ in her friends’ silversmith studio, Laura fell in love with making jewellery using the specially selected seaglass from many happy beachcombing trips. Porth Jewellery began in Summer 2018 and she now works from her home studio in Falmouth.
Laura runs workshops at Inspire Makers monthly on how to make stacking rings, charm bangles and seaglass jewellery. Dates for her upcoming classes can be found here.
