  • Description

    Pycombe, Sussex.

    Narrator explains how the work of the Blacksmith has changed over recent years. Shots of a Blacksmith - Sean Black - at work making traditional shepherd's crooks. Narrator explains that Sean has turned his hand to making jewellery - "new Iron Age adornments". Various C/Us of Sean making jewellery from iron - very funky items - look more like 1970s jewellery than 1950s. Earrings are modelled as well as a great charm bracelet with huge charms.

    "It looks like women are going back in time in their efforts to look glamorous" states the narrator.
