Julia Schofield has excelled in several fields of creative work - as an actor and writer, as a silk weaver and painter, and latterly as an inspired jeweller. From the mid-1990s she maintained her own bespoke jewellery studio in Porthleven, Cornwall which she sold in 2009. This enterprise, called Tombodama, offered unique pieces of hand-crafted bead and jewel-encrusted for weddings and special events of all kinds. 

Initially arriving in Cornwall to write a book, she has been captured by the liveliness and creativity found here, and made a unique place within it. In 2010 she was the moving force behind the army of people who contributed to the growth of the Porthleven Food Festival, and its huge success.
