It was just a few weeks before Christmas when we got a call from the BBC Countryfile team based in Bristol. They were planning their Wiltshire episode and wanted to feature a local craft with an unusual story – and they chose us!
The team were with Ela and her Mother, Hannah, for a day of filming and covered the journey of a gem, from being found in the ground to being set in a finished piece of jewellery.
We started the day fossil hunting in the local countryside and chatted to Anita Rani about how Wiltshire inspires our creative process, and particularly the local treasure, Star Agate, also known as Tisbury Coral. We then headed back to the workshop where we showed Anita how we prepare and set the Coral in a handmade Silver pendant.
