The treasure trove of wonderful jewellery and gifts up in St Lawrence is celebrating its 25th birthday this summer.
We met up with Lynda Firkins, Marketing Manager at Jersey Goldsmiths who explained, ?In the early years we were lucky enough to be able to sell jewellery to the mass of holidaying visitors, who were only too happy to take home a keepsake of their time in Jersey. As our visitor numbers declined we realised how important it was that we developed our business with the changing times. Taking a good look around us at what was on our doorstep, a beautiful island, full of passionate talented people was part of the inspiration that would move us forward. We started to design more collections ourselves from things we could see around us each day. Jewellery is all about emotion and designing a piece of jewellery that shows the sun setting at St Ouen?s Bay or a mother holding her firstborn child is creating jewellery that truly touches the soul. We feel our collections have ripened and matured with time, creating unique and distinctive pieces of jewellery.?
Julia Williams, manager of Jersey Goldsmiths said, ?These past years have been very useful in helping us to continue and grow and we feel very proud of the collections we have produced. We would like to thank our loyal locals for believing in us and we look forward to delighting them and our new customers for the next 25 years?.
Make sure you stop in over the summer and have a look around, the whole place has a great celebratory atmopshere at the moment and their tasty cakes at the cafe are unmissable!
