ABOUT LUCY & BEN
Silver Sapling is based in Penzance, in the beautiful Penwith area of Cornwall.
I originally trained as a silver smith in the historic town of Lewes in my home county of East Sussex. Having always had a passion for buying and wearing jewellery, it seemed natural to learn the skills of the trade. after three years of learning the craft, I started taking commissions and repairs.
In 2016, we set out on an adventure to live on the Isles of Scilly. Within a year, I was making a few pieces for local galleries and online. The business really started in the spring of 2017 when we secured a unit at the phoenix craft studios; a co-operative of local makers opposite porthmellon beach on St. Marys.
At this point, Ben joined me in the business and we soon set about creating the collections you see here on the website.
In the summer of 2020, a new adventure saw us settle in the Penzance area of Cornwall, and setting up a new studio in an old Victorian granite house we call home.
Since living in Cornwall, we've taken inspiration from the surrounding landscapes, textures, flora, colours and beauty of this part of the world.
Everything you see here has been designed and hand made in our studio. Most of our materials are ethically sourced, using 'eco' silver and gold.
As well as our collections, we do take on bespoke pieces and commissions, so please get in touch via the contact page if you'd like to discuss something.
