A COMPANY which specialises in handmade jewellery in pewter, tin, silver, bronze and Cornish tin has taken on five new members of staff.
St Justin in Long Rock is increasing its workforce to 33 in response to a 10 per cent increase in sales this year.
Four of the new workers will be involved in silver and pewter production and one in administrative support.
A spokesman for the company, founded almost 30 years ago in Pendeen by current managing director Jeremy Gilbert, said: "It's been another incredibly successful year.
"All our products are hand-made at the factory and shipped worldwide, with nine agents across the UK and 12 distributors around the globe.
"There's an extremely successful internet site that enables customers to view the full St Justin collection of items."
In addition, to celebrate the fifth anniversary of the opening of the St Justin Shop in Causewayhead, the company is holding a sale in the period leading up to Christmas.
The sale, which begins on Saturday, is being held solely in the Causewayhead shop in gratitude to local people for their continued support.
It will include a large choice of products from the pewter, silver and bronze ranges offered at discounted prices.
