About us

To those of you who are unfamiliar us here is a little background:

In 1982 Pebbles was founded by myself and my brother potter John Bedding.  Soon after opening Pebbles, which at first sold only ceramics, I began to seek out locally handmade jewellery.  In 1982, when we opened our first shop in St Ives, finding it was far from easy, but little by little the nucleus of the collection we show today was formed.  Now locally, in the rest of Britain and abroad, the craft of making jewellery is thriving, the problem now is less finding it but choosing!

In the early 1990s John left Pebbles to form his own gallery St Ives Ceramics which, along with his own work, shows some of the best pottery in the country.  I continued Pebbles until retiring in 2016 after 34 years. Our jewellery has since been available only online.

Pebbles specialises in mainly in hand crafted silver jewellery, many pieces are accented with gold, precious and semi-precious stones much of which is made by jewellers who have worked with us over many years.

So whether you are looking for the perfect gift for a special birthday, wedding anniversary or Christmas, or if you just want to treat yourself, you can be sure to find something unusual or unique in our online gallery.
