During the 1970s and 1980s, Lundin Links was home to a jewellery workshop - situated on Mill Wynd, next to the Crusoe Hall. In the above shot, taken in 1990, the faded sign on the wall reads "Jewellery Workshop, Norman Grant DA, Dust Ltd". Born in 1943, Norman Grant was an artist and silversmith who set up Dust Jewellery in the 1970s. He specialised in enamelled silver pieces, including brooches, earrings, pendants and cufflinks. For a period, an annual summer school ran at the workshop, where students from around the world would come to learn from Norman. Eventually Norman Grant left Scotland to work in London. I recall the workshop subsequently being used for the production of painted dragon ornaments. Do you know more about this or other uses of the site?
To the left is an example of the type of jewellery produced by Norman Grant in the above workshop. It is a silver and enamel brooch in a Celtic style with a pair of swans incorporated. The same design would be produced in different colours of enamel work. Many jewellery designs were produced in such a way that they could be used as more than one thing eg either a brooch or a pendant. If you own a piece of jewellery produced in Lundin Links, please comment.
