Hello and welcome to launch of our brand new website Joan the Wad.


We are stockists of all things Cornish including amazing gifts, jewellery, and of course our extensive range of Cornish Piskies and Pixies.
Based in Polperro, Joan the Wad is named after the Queen of Piskies, famous in Cornish folklore as providing luck. Joan the Wad was known for lighting the way with her torch to good fortune, providing the Cornish people with protection.

We are proud to hold an extensive range of beautifully made Piskies and Pixies and enjoy sharing the amazing folklore tales of these mischievous little creatures. Our mission is to keep these Cornish tales alive within culture so that these these charming stories are never lost. If you have a question about any of our Piskies or Pixies, please don’t hesitate to ask.

Within our Cornish Gifts we supply a collection of beautifully made jewellery pieces, from world renowned lucky Cornish Piskey Charms to St Justin Jewellery and Cornish Sterling Silver Jewellery. All with a unique story, our range of gifts are the perfect way to remember your trip to Cornwall wherever you are in the world.
