The National Lobster Hatchery in Padstow in Cornwall is a conservation, research and education charity. It aims to help conserve vulnerable lobster populations, which also protects the livelihood of fishing communities. The National Lobster Hatchery has a visitor centre, where you can see learn about the charity’s essential work – and meet the current resident lobsters!
As Mallards’ founder Douglas grew up on the Cornish Coast, this is a conservation programme close to our hearts. The lobster is a lovely shape to work with, both graceful and intricate, and it makes absolutely stunning silver jewellery.
