Abbott & Ellwood Creative Designers and Jewellers

October 20, 2010

Just outside St Ives on the North Coast of West Penwith is the home and studio

of Mike Abbott and Kim Ellwood.  They create very contemporary collections of

hand printed, figurative brooches and craft one off sculptures, often involving figures

in the garden or on a boat or something else that will bring a smile.  They are bright,

narrative pieces using quirky individuals often made using metal and found objects.

I’d guess that their inspiration for these lovely pieces lies outside their front door.

There’s also a great article about their survival in business on the Craft Council site here.

    I just love anything quirky…..it makes my heart sing. I have added this to my “won the lotto shopping trip list”

      I need one of those lists too, or perhaps the lottery win should come first. Glad that my blog makes you sing, anything in particular ?
