THE art of crafting bespoke jewellery is being showcased at a redesigned centre in rural Hertfordshire.
Jewellery designer Harriett Kelsall has renovated a countryside tudor barn in Hall’s Green to create an open-plan display area, viewable workshop and a café to enjoy lunch or a coffee.
The highlight of the oak-beamed building at Fairclough Hall Farm is the affectionately-termed ‘Goldsmiths’ Bowl, where visitors can see hand-constructed jewellery being made.
The company specialises in wedding, engagement and eternity rings, with a focus on one-off ethical designs – something which is reflected in the redesign by retail guru Callum Lumsden.
“When he suggested that we should knock down our large and messy store room I thought he was joking at first, but then he explained he didn’t think a company who had nothing to hide, should need a store room,” said Mrs Kelsall.

“He was absolutely right and actually what was behind the scenes is just part of us and what we do. So you will see our sketch books and beads on display upstairs. Our hugely talented team of goldsmiths are on display too – I don’t want their talents hidden away anymore.”
