Sara Miller Signature Jewellery Range - Now available online

Sara Miller Signature Jewellery Range - Now available online

We here at Portmeirion Online have always admired Sara Miller’s love of playful prints, vibrant patterns and exquisite use of colour.

As an award-winning British designer, she has always been inspired by her adventures around the globe. From the intricate decorative craftsmanship in táhe palaces of Jaipur to the sensational Sakura cherry blossom in Japan, she is passionate about exploring the world and bringing that inspiration to her London studio, where she translates it to produce truly beautiful, sophisticated and elegant designs.

Sara Miller London are recognised for their use of rich textures and vivid colours, as is evident with her new and beautiful jewellery and watch ranges available on our website and our village shops.

Sara says “I’ve always loved jewellery and with our design style being so delicate and feminine it felt like a natural progression for us to design a jewellery range. As with our prints, the different pieces have a sense of storytelling, and our love for pattern and colour is beautifully captured – especially in our watch collection. The delicate gold detail achieved within the dials is gorgeous and I am so proud of the unique and distinctive collection we have created.”

Our personal favourite is the Sara Miller Love Bird necklace, bracelet and earrings, available in rose gold, silver and gold. They make the perfect gift for a loved one or a payday treat for yourself!

Prisoner Shop Portmeirion Village Official Opening

On Saturday the 12th of June The Prisoner Shop in Portmeirion celebrated its 20th anniversary.  Read Roger Langley’s report below of the official opening of The Prisoner Shop Portmeirion Village

On Saturday 12th June the new Prisoner Shop opened in Portmeirion. Robin Llywelyn arranged a champagne reception, with invited guests. The premises has been extensively refurbished, with stone floor, new French windows and fitted display cases and units. In addition, the hotel was offering its own exclusive range of souvenirs. A new book on The Prisoner had been commissioned by the hotel.

 A large Rover balloon, several Prisoner ‘extras’ with their original badges, TV crew and an assortment of journalists and photographers were assembled. Robin made an opening speech, embracing the history of The Prisoner in Portmeirion, letters written to his grandfather and to himself by Patrick McGoohan, and found memories of so many local people.

Robin invited Roger Langley to say a few words and the address which followed touched upon the history of Six of One, its close association with the ‘Village’. Roger’s book ‘The Prisoner In Portmeirion’ was officially launched at the shop opening. Robin referred to the new work, stating ‘We are very proud to be associated with it production’

Lord Dafydd Elis Thomas, presiding officer of the Welsh National Assembly, Huw Ediwn Jones of the Gwynedd Film Unit and Amelia Bedford from Carlton TV all echoed the sentiments of so many people originally involved in The Prisoner and other enthusiasts ready to enjoy the shop and the annual convention.

Decorative ribbon around the shop was cut by Lord Elis Thomas who pronounced the shop officially open. Robin thanked Roger and Six of One for supporting the event and hoped that a partnership between hotel and society will create a solid basis for the future meetings and shop promotions from now and into the next millennium.
