We love what we do!



Clair and Paul Pennington own The Jewellery Workshop in Porthleven and work together with their son David and daughter Sarah and their dedicated team, to bring you the very best quality customer service and comprehensive jewellery practices in the area. 

From replacing lost earring backs; to repairs; to watch batteries; to elaborate bespoke commissions.

In 2009, shortly after moving to Cornwall, Clair started their journey by creating and producing her beautiful 'Harlequin' range; selling it, at first, on a market stall on Porthleven Harbour.

When they had the opportunity to take on our Workshop premises, on Mount Pleasant Road, Porthleven Harbour in 2012, they couldn`t say no.

However, due to their growing reputation for quality and value, they found that they outgrew the workshop after a couple of years and managed to relocate into the larger shop premises, along Harbour Road, where you will find them today.

With the increasing work load, Rachel Lambert, a talented and inovative jeweller, originally from New Zealand, worked alongside them, on everything from commissions to creating new collections, ensuring that there was always something new to see. Rachel has now returned to New Zealand but Clair, Paul and the team, are still making sure the new designs and old favourites keep coming!

Their son David has now joined the team and along with their other accomplished jeweller, Ausra, they are bringing fresh eyes and ideas for taking the business into a new, exciting phase.

Whilst daughter Sarah takes after Clair, with her eye for detail and ability to design and produce beautiful jewellery.

Quite simply, they all love what they do and take great pleasure in providing a service which is completely personal and unique to each of our customers.

All of our team members have a wealth of diverse experience, each one of them bringing complementary, collaborative dimensions to their work. 

Clair: " I have always had a love for jewellery and have been making jewellery as a hobby since the 1980s. After a break to bring up our children, I returned to jewellery making in a professional capacity. I created our 'Harlequin' range and regularly create one off pieces, using sterling silver, precious and semi-precious stones. We are committed to providing a reliable, great quality local service."​

Paul: "After a few successful years on Porthleven Harbour Market, I realised how much I enjoyed the creative side of jewellery. I went back to school and attended a three year course at Truro College, gaining a BA Hons degree in Silversmithing and Jewellery Design. If it is technically possible, we will create it. We feel that the love and passion we have for our work, shines through."
