Can you help solve case of missing jewels?


A local jewellery designer is hoping to find some missing jewels worth hundreds of pounds.

Sarah Barry who owns Lilac Dragonfly spent hours working on her latest collection but hasn't seen the jewellery since it was about to go on sale at a Christmas Fayre in town.

She's not sure whether the nine pieces - five pairs of earrings and four pendants - have been stolen or she lost them while she was setting up for the Spirit of Christmas Fayre.

Sarah said: "There was about 10 boxes in a large plain black gift bag. All the boxes had Lilac Dragonfly stickers on them and many have price tickets inside.

"I am not sure where it went missing precisely. I was preparing for the 'Spirit of Christmas Fayre' and on the Wednesday (2 December) I had them in the black bag when I left work in Liberty Wharf at 2pm. I stopped outside M&S to rearrange the bags I was carrying so very possibly left the bag on the bench there...either tha or it was taken out of my car whilst I was unloading some bits into the chalet in Royal Square."

Sarah has spent hours working on the special collection and is desperate to get all the jewellery back. She's even offering a reward for their safe return and wants anyone to get in touch if they are offered any of the pieces as a gift or see any for sale.

She said: "The pieces are all gemstone and sterling silver, and the retail prices add up to over £400. The time designing and making was many hours, with many remakes and rejects. Most of the pieces are one off's and are distinctive."

Sarah started making silver jewellery incorporating semi precious gemstones and Swarovski Crystals after moving to Jersey in 2006. You can find out more about her business and get her contact details here.
