Each piece of St Justin jewellery and giftware is crafted by hand and eye in Cornwall, the South West extremity of Britain. This wild and beautiful land was home to the many native Celts who were driven away from the temperate midlands of Britain by invading European warriors, such as the Angles of Northern Germany. It is in places such as Cornwall, Wales, Ireland and Scotland that the art of the Celts and ancient Britons has survived, carved into stone tombs and discovered on pottery fragments and ornaments
Silver jewellery is made with Sterling Silver (925). Nearly as hard as bronze, it takes a polish well and is easily kept clean using Silver Dip. We make our silver jewellery using the lost wax process and then, after fettling, give each piece a final hand polish.
The Glas Mor collection is very special. Each piece is inlaid with a paste containing tiny grains of coloured glass. The item is then heated in an oven to melt the glass. This creates beautiful vitreous enamel colours.
