These link in with the theme or feeling of a piece to further enhance it. So that when you are wearing your piece of jewellery, you are also carrying (in your mind) the beautiful images within thepoem. I collect the wood from the local Sussex woodland, then saw it up, sand it down, paint it very delicately and varnish it, to make pendants.

In 1938 Marston Barrett established a jewellers in Lewes. His ambition was to provide antique, secondhand, modern jewellery and silverware of the highest quality. This ambition is still there today,after 70 years of business. Our shop itself, with its green and gold fascia, is a landmark of Lewes High Street and is to be found opposite the entrance to the 11th century castle. When you enter the shop the interior has an 'Old World' charm, and is like stepping back in time.
This is where Jonathan and Jamie have their workbenches; where the jewellery-making is done during the day; where the jewellery reference books are stored; and where there's a rather old and lovelyColchester Bantam lathe. The floor is wide-boarded in elm. Jonathan and Jamie's bench is made from Rock Maple, that used to belong to Winston Churchill. The upstairs backroom has a large rotating silversmith's forge, with the sink, the tea and the coffee (rather importantly).
