An exotic chocolatier might set up his or her business, I suggested, at http://budleighbrewsterunited.blogspot.com/2009/12/sweet-idea-for-budleigh-shop.html having learnt about such a development in Budleigh's sister-town of Brewster, Massachusetts.
Jason Jones, pictured above, is one of four members of what he describes as "a jewellery cooperative" which has up to now been based at Otterton Mill where designer Steve Whitford set up his handcrafted jewellery business.
South Africa-born Jason, 39, started off as a graphic designer before moving into jewellery design 15 years ago, learning his new skills in what he calls "the school of hard knocks" rather than following a formal college course. Clearly he has no regrets about his change of direction. "Graphic design is flat," he told me. "This is exciting 3D work full of movement and dynamic challenge."
