Portholes! - New Jewellery by Lawrence Gibson June 22 2017
Lawrence Gibson was brought up in a hamlet near the Lizard Peninsula in Cornwall. He gained a National Diploma from Falmouth School of Art in 1991 and relocated and gained a First Class Degree with Honours from Cardiff Institute of H.E. in 1994.Post education, Lawrence worked in the model-making business where he learnt new techniques and processes which lent themselves to the design and manufacture of jewellery. New forms were created through inspiration from the UK coast, its beautiful coves and beaches, fishing harbours and surf culture. Now based in Sully, South Wales, the process continues… as does the creation of ocean inspired jewellery made with pewter and resin.
Purple Gallery stocks a wide range of Lawrence's jewellery. Price range from £12 - £30
Thrashion Recycled Skateboard Jewellery November 26 2015
Thrashion Recycled Skateboard Jewellery ®
Award winning products made from broken and recycled skateboards.
Thrashion is a 100% skater owned-and- run DIY business - supporting the UK skateboarding industry and is based in Falmouth, Cornwall.
Where did the idea come from? Nat Ribgy has been passionate about recycling for years, but started Thrashion when she was pregnant with her little boy (now 8!) She found old skateboards after clearing out the attic and had a "lightbulb moment". Her first product was a bangle and this expanded to her current product range of necklaces, pendants, bracelets, bangles, earrings, cufflinks etc.
Where do the skateboards come from? Nat says: "I am supplied by skate companies, distributors, pro skaters, local skate shops, local skate parks and friends".
How are the products sealed? Each item is coated with clear varnish which is applied by hand. The product is tested vigouously to ensure that it will last, the product is waterproof to a degree but its not advised to submerge the product as this will affect its longevity.
