A Precious Legacy

Rebecca Smith

Nowhere is the famous Ditchling arts and crafts heritage more alive and well than in the workshop and gallery of Anton Pruden and Rebecca Smith right in the centre of the village. Eric Gill himself suggested to Dunstan Pruden (Anton’s grandfather) that he join the Guild of St. Joseph and St. Dominic on Ditchling common in 1931. As one of the most influential silversmiths of the 20th Century, the legacy is strong:

“Growing up at the Guild, I was aware even very young of the centrality of the work there….not an over-serious, dry thing, but that they loved, cherished and valued what they did. It was a rare thing then as now and we make it central to our life too. “

For over 20 years they have been designing & making extraordinary jewellery and silverware for those who appreciate real craftsmanship. Whether buying a small silver gift off the shelf or commissioning an engagement ring of a lifetime, buying directly from their workshop is an unforgettable experience.

Commissions include chalices for Ely Cathedral, candlesticks for Durham Cathedral and jewellery for Julie Christie. Rebecca Smith and Anton Pruden are Freemen of the Goldsmiths Company.

Open daily 10.00-17.00, Monday – Sunday. (Sundays 11.00-4.00) Open seven days a week.
