Dorset fossil show

Jo designs and makes the jewellery by hand. Although some designs are repeated, they are never quite the same as previous versions, so each piece is quite unique.We have an extensive range of jewellery in stock but are also able to make individual pieces to order. Visit the stall to see the full range.

Jo and Pete also do all the preparation work on the fossils, including some restoration where necessary. The whole family like collecting in the field. We have an extensive knowledge of minerals. A wide variety of all of these things can be seen on the stall.

We also provide a preparation service. In other words, we can clean your fossils up for you if you would prefer not to do it yourself. Bring your fossils to the stall, or email with a photo for an estimate. See our feature fossil


Fossils @ School.

Why not let us bring our fossils into school to show the children. We can tailor our presentation to your specific year group and give them a hands on experience they will not forget. We can provide samples for the school to keep and the kids get something to take home. As recommended by Carlton Lower School, North Beds.Reasonable rates contact palaeojos@googlemail.com
