Salt & Co is a small Northumbrian business specialising in 925 sterling silver jewellery inspired by the coast Founded by designer and silversmith Martha Gothorp, Salt & Co. has grown from strength to strength over the years Martha's love for Northumberland and the coast is prominent in her designs you will often find her walking her dog along the coast with pockets full of shells to inspire her next creations. Martha works from her home studio on the North East Coast and the workshop to the rear of the gallery to create sterling silver pieces made to love and last.
In February 2022 we were proud to announce the opening of our first shop / gallery on the harbour front in Amble The shop was a dream come true for Martha, with the added bonus of sea views across Amble Little Shore Beach and the Harbour, you can even see Warkworth Castle behind the passing boats! We recommend a walk along the pier and beach whilst you visit and if you're hungry
why not try the fish shack just next door for incredible food!

Introducing our founder & designer
Martha grew up on the coast of Northumberland, surfing, kayaking, sea swimming and beach combing with her family. It was at an early age she found her love of nature and the ocean which is now her main inspiration as a designer.
"I always knew I wanted to make jewellery from a young age. Salt & Co. was my childhood dream I have somehow managed to make into a reality. I used to play shops as a child and sell little seashells I had found for plastic money and I think a lot of my ideas in the business do root back to that.
The shop was the 'dream come true' moment for me. I still walk into work everyday and have to pinch myself."
THE CINDERELLA COLLECTION
The cinderella collection is a collection of special individual rings with designs lead by unique gemstones. Each ring is made to a random size, creating your very own cinderella moment, but instead of 'if the shoe fits' its 'if the ring fits'.
THE NORTHUMBRIAN SHELLS COLLECTION
Each one of our Northumbrian shells was hand selected between pebbles and sand on a beach in Northumberland before being taken back to Martha's home studio, cast into 925 sterling silver and polished to a high shine to become a piece of jewellery to treasure forever.
Each Northumbrian shell comes packaged in our luxury packaging and includes a little card explaining its special journey.
A true Northumbrian keepsake.
