If you would like to visit Serendipity Jewellery and find out where the magic happens, then come along to the studio workshop. You will be able to meet Jill. You would be very welcome but please make an appointment first.
There will be an array of handmade jewellery for sale, as well as many stunning original oil and watercolour artworks painted by Jill herself.
From the M60 motorway ring road, follow the A666 to Bolton. At the end of the dual carriageway, continue to follow the A666 (St Peter's Way) away from the town centre. This becomes Blackburn Rd (still A666), heading in the direction of Egerton / Darwen / Blackburn.
After a mile or so, at the junction (Asda on left hand side) where the A666 crosses the A58, go straight through the traffic lights and across the next small set of lights at Holly Street. A few minutes later, you will see a large old style mill - now flats - on the right hand side. After this, turn right off the A666 into Andrew Lane.
Follow the estate road round to the right where Andrew Lane becomes Sharples Hall Drive. A little further on, the same road becomes Thornham Drive. Continue on the same road, passing the Oaks Junior School (on your right) and take the 3rd road on the right. This is Ashfield Grove.
Serendipity: 8 Ashfield Grove, Sharples, Bolton, Lancashire, BL1 7RD.
Serendipity jewellery is stunning and distinctly individual, being designed, crafted and carefully hand finished in the studio in Bolton. Jill uses a range of silversmithing techniques to fabricate her handmade pendants, necklaces and earrings, incorporating hints of colour by adding antique patinas or by using beautiful gemstones.
