From large garden sculptures to small delicate jewellery, this place offers so much. Have a chat with the 'smithy' and browse till your heart is content. Lovely views across the valley too.

The craftsmanship of the metal work is first class. So don't just walk up the drive, go into the shed and see the gallery. There are a lot of stunning peices to look at (clocks, mirrors, candle holders, jewellery).

Talisman looks pretty ordinary from the outside. Once we went in it was like a treasure cave of beautiful colourful metal art. It was just amazing. It's well worth a visit. Clive

Interesting little store with handmade mirrors, statues, jewelry and an assortment of other items. Not really my thing but it’s hard not to appreciate the time and effort put into the items made. Worth having a look at whilst strolling around the historic little town.

A interesting shop selling locally hand made jewellery and art. A good variety for most tastes. Set in a interesting little spot.

This is a bit of left field for sure. Ron, the blacksmith/artisan, has a way with iron and his workshop is an eclectic mix of old blacksmith and modern tools. You can decide whether his works are to your taste or not, suffice to say...More
