Jennie Hancox lives in West Cornwall near Zennor, and is a highly gifted silversmith, calligrapher and hand book-maker. She shows her work internationally and also in exhibitions and galleries in St Ives. She and her husband Arthur Hancox (Art Director and curator) run the Plumbline Gallery in St Ives.
In 1997 she led a series of calligraphy and goldleaf workshops at the Jamieson Library, Newmill which extended over that year into a 'group' which met intermittently thereafter for further creative sessions. Her tiny books and beautifully crafted jewellery are treasured by collectors.
