HRH The Countess of Wessex

A Royal VIP Visit!

Greta Kaniok

We were so excited for the opportunity to meet the HRH The Countess of Wessex, who recently visited Krowji,  during a two-day trip to Cornwall.

We were chosen from a hat to present the HRH The Countess of Wessex with a gift from our collection. We selected and hand crafted the double and single pod pendent in Sterling Silver and Chalcedony. The piece was inspired by a original seaweed sculpture found along the rugged coastline around Mounts Bay.

The Countess met with studio-holders and Creative Kernow project staff in the Melting Pot Café including Cornwall 365, Miracle Theatre and Cornwall Museums Partnership. She was presented with a gift by Amanda Maltwood of MAMM + MYRGH Goldsmiths. The classic sterling silver Pod Pendant, commissioned by Krowji and created by MAMM + MYRGH was inspired by seaweed found along the Cornish coast and it is hoped will serve as a small, handcrafted reminder of her trip to Cornwall’s largest creative hub. To find out more information about MAMM + MYRGH Goldsmiths and their range of jewellery, including the Pod Pendant please visit their website.

It was such an honour to meet HRH The Countess of Wessex and present her with our piece of Cornwall. Thank you to the Krowji who hosted the visit and who do so much to promote the work of so many talented craftspeople.
