About Us

Kernowcraft is your destination for gemstones and jewellery making supplies

Our small team have been providing high quality gemstones and jewellery making supplies to hobbyists and professional jewellers for over 50 years.

We have been lucky to have loyal relationships with our suppliers from the very beginning, ensuring we offer trusted, quality products for you and your handmade designs.

Whether you’re at the beginning of your jewellery making journey or a professional jeweller, Kernowcraft is here for you through it all as your reliable supplier. Our aim is to make jewellery making accessible to everyone, giving creatives all the resources and supplies they need to create their own jewellery and to feel empowered by 'handmade' and the opportunities this can bring.

A small business with a personal touch you can rely on

As we are jewellery makers ourselves, we always offer a personal service to make sure your jewellery making needs are met in the best possible way. You can easily add special requests for gemstones! Whether you're after matching pairs, a particular colour, pattern or shape, just let us know in your shopping basket and our small team will personally spend time trying our very best to select the perfect gemstone for you.

We’re always updating our website to keep you inspired by new products and design ideas. Whether it’s sourcing brand new products, sharing a new project or an interview with a customer who inspires us – there’s something for everyone!

We hope you love every minute of browsing sparkling gems, stocking up on supplies and diving into our kits and tutorials to find all the inspiration you need. If you're in need of a helping hand, get in touch with our small friendly team, we'd love to help you.


The story of Kernowcraft...

Kernowcraft Rocks & Gems began way back in 1967, after my grandparents took a trip across the other side of the world to sunny Australia. It was here that they noticed the rising popularity of jewellery making and made the bold decision to bring this wonderful craft back to the UK. 

With decades of growth and success, the business has since been handed down over three generations. I took over as Managing Director to continue the passion which fuelled our family business - to inspire fellow jewellers across the world to follow their creative dreams and provide all the tools they need to achieve them.

We are now celebrating over 50 years of sourcing high quality gemstones and jewellery making supplies to hobbyists, students and professional jewellers. Our small, knowledgeable team pride ourselves on delivering the very best customer service, a friendly voice at the end of the phone as well as a personal service you can always rely on.

Whatever stage you are at in your jewellery making journey, Kernowcraft is here for you every step of the way.

Kernowcraft through the ages

We have had premises across Cornwall over the years selling in shops, until the 80s when Kernowcraft moved to an old pottery building in Bolingey on the north coast of Cornwall just outside Perranporth. It was here that we focused on mail order - it wasn't until the year 2000 that the Kernowcraft website launched! Today you can shop for all the jewellery making supplies you need right here on our website.
