Gowan Jewellers Relocation News


To all my lovely clients, many of whom I hope I can call friends, I can now share my exciting news. After 33 years at the shop premises in Bell Street, I have decided to make some changes which will enable me to focus on my Fine Art jewellery pieces and bespoke commissions surrounded by the nature that I so love!

At present I have moved my workshop into my home conservatory …so as I write I am looking out into the garden with the sun and blue sky above me. During the next year or so I will be designing, planning and building a bespoke studio workshop on my land near the Essex coast …and in due course will give you further details … and no doubt have an opening party!

Whilst this process is underway, I will still be available for private appointments to discuss individual commissions and purchases from my extensive stock of one off handmade designs. A selection of many can be found on my website as well. Appointments can be held at your own home, at a hotel meeting or at one my Craft & Designs shows held throughout the year, click here  www.gowanjewellers.co.uk/latest-news

To celebrate this new chapter for Gowan Jewellers I will be hosting a special Spring Exhibition from 17th to 20th May in The Library Room of Manor of Groves Hotel near Sawbridgeworth. This will be by invitation only with very limited numbers in each 2 hour time slot so that you can be assured of social distancing space and my individual attention. Coffee, tea, wine and cake will be available whilst you browse the display. All Covid protocols will be observed.




The Spring Exhibition will include a selection of brand new one off pieces influenced by nature, as well as a wide selection of pieces available at 25% discount …. This will be a continuation of my Exceptional Sale at Christmas which was sadly curtailed by Government Tier changes.

The dates for The Spring Exhibition are as follows:

Monday 17th May:
3pm to 5pm, 5pm to 7pm,
Tuesday 18th May:
10am to 12noon, 12noon to 2pm, 2pm to 4pm, 4pm to 6pm
Wednesday 19th May:
10am to 12noon, 12noon to 2pm, 2pm to 4pm, 4pm to 6pm
Thursday 20th May:
10am to 12noon, 12noon to 2pm, 2pm to 4pm, 4pm to 6pm

I may be able to do later slots on the Tuesday and Wednesday evenings if there is a demand.

Please email me to confirm your interest and state a preferred day and time. Tickets will be available on a first come basis and are stritctly limited. I am very much looking forward to seeing some of you then. joanne@gowanjewellers.co.uk

I have missed our many friendly chats at both shows and at the shop and so I look forward to hearing from you all in the very near future.

I am delighted to advise you that the long tradition of 3 Bell Street as a jewellers premises will continue! From 28th March 2021 I am transferring my Shop premises lease to Sally Andrews and Emma Turpin for their Jewellery School, File and Forge. Sally and Emma do all my valuations, repairs and alterations now, as they both worked for me at the Shop for 17 and 8 years respectively. I am sure that many of you will remember them and I wish them both every success in their new chapter. You can contact them direct on info@fileandforge.co.uk and after April when shops are allowed to re open you will find them at 3 Bell Street.

All the best
Joanne                                                                            March 2021
