A NEW jewellery and craft shop, specialising in Baltic amber, is to open in St Ives next week.
Amber Paradise, in Merryland, St Ives, will be opened by the town's mayor, Councillor Brian Luter, at midday on Saturday November 14, and promises to provide the highest quality amber products at affordable prices.
The family-run business originated eight years ago in Lithuania, where much of the amber used in the shop's products is sourced.
Owner Julia Shirley said: "I am delighted to have been able to open in the historic and picturesque town of St Ives. I believe the friendly, independent and individual boutique-style shops make St Ives stand out as an attractive shopping destination.
