WHAT MAKES THE JEWELLERY WORKSHOP DIFFERENT FROM THE REST
We are Clair and Paul Pennington.
We own 'The Jewellery Workshop', in the picturesque Cornish coastal village of Porthleven, which is situated between The Lizard and Land's End.
The Jewellery Workshop actually has two workspaces in Porthleven.
Our retail Shop is on Harbour Road, Porthleven. (TR13 9FB) Whilst our Workshop is across the working harbour, locally known as 'Breageside' (TR13 9JS).
The Workshop, with seven fully equipped work-benches, is where we hold our all of our courses and classes.
In the Shop, we, along with our dedicated team, pride ourselves on excellent customer service, providing a friendly, bespoke experience unique to every customer.
We offer stunning jewellery, watches and gifts, for every taste and pocket.
Each item is either skilfully handmade in house; by talented local artists or outsourced to a few trusted providers to ensure the best possible choice as far as quality and design goes.
We are the sole stockist in Cornwall, for the excellent quality range of Zeppelin and Iron Annie Watches, made in Germany by POINTtec. They enhance our great range of Lorus watches, suitable for the whole family and made by Seiko.
Working in silver, gold and platinum, we specialise in commissioned work, repairs, alterations and remodelling. We can also melt down your old, broken or unused yellow gold and repurpose it into a truly bespoke piece.
We offer a range of professional jeweller's services, such as on-the-spot repairs; restringing; re-knotting; replacing lost earring 'backs', replacement batteries and straps for watches; bespoke jewellery making and so much more.
As well as our regular 'Make Your Own' Courses; Seven Week 'Learn the Basics' Silversmithing Courses; totally bespoke 'One To One' tutorials, we also offer the popular 'Make Each Others Wedding Rings' experiences.
All courses and classes are supported by our experienced jewellers. You are guaranteed to create something beautiful, every time.
Clair, Paul, Michelle and Nicky and Aoise, look forward to meeting you soon!

What Our Customers Say
"Myself and my partner made our own wedding rings. I was a little apprehensive about doing so, after all they are the most symbolic jewellery we would ever wear! We were met by Rachel and Paul, who made us most welcome! Rachel was great and we both throughly enjoyed our day, and my fears disappeared very quickly! We both now have rings that mean so much more than ones we could have bought from a shop, more sentimental as they were made out of gold gifted by family and we made each others, and completely unique! We love them, can wait till we can wear them! Thank you so much! I would recommend it to anyone!"
"My fiancé and I have just had such a great day, making each other's wedding ring. Rachel is a fab teacher, and we not only have made something far more special than could be bought in a shop, but we have learnt a new skill as well! A brilliant day all round- highly recommended to anyone who fancies doing something a bit different!"
"What a special day! Myself and my partner have just completed a day making our own wedding rings with lovely Rachel and nothing at all could have made the experience any more enjoyable, simply perfect! Friendly, professional, genuinely interested and all round lovely team of staff! From initial design conversations a year ago through to making our rings today we've been supported in such a personal way that the process, not just the rings, is already one of our special memories! Thankyou so much! Ian & Bod.x.”
We offer a variety of professional services and advice to all our customers.
We can produce a variety of textured metals, using differing techniques such as:
Wax carving: wax carving by hand, can be used both for setting design details and for the production of cast pieces.
Hammered Finish: Adding interest by striking the metal with shaped hammers/utensils. Reticulation: Heating the surface of the metal and cooling it quickly, allowing a unique finish to each piece.
