A stylish and unique personalised silver name necklace, each one individually designed and hand cut. A handmade original perfect for Christmas, birthdays and anniversaries.
These necklaces have become increasingly popular as gifts for new mothers and Mothers Day, with the name of their new baby instead of their own.
Making these necklaces begins with a sketch based on my handwriting. I trace the script and stick it to a piece of sheet silver that I have previously textured with lace. I hand cut the inner and outer edges of the name using a tiny saw blade. With watchmakers files, I file off the saw marks, and then solder on the chain and clasp, and polish it to a bright finish.
Each one of these script name necklaces is completely original, handmade from start to finish by me in my workshop.
You needn't have a name, of course, what about 'Love', 'Sweetheart' or 'Mummy', the choices are endless. Some previous orders have been hilarious, occasionally unrepeatable, touching, silly. How about a very personal nickname?
I've done over 800 now, but my favourites are Mrs Lumley/Mrs G and so on, often ordered by husbands for their wives on their wedding day! I've done names of businesses, new baby's names, 'Granny', 'Aunty' and 'Lover'. The necklaces have been given as 18th, 21st, 40th, 50th birthday presents, Christmas, Anniversary, Engagement and Hen Night gifts (the last one was the unrepeatable one!).

Please be sure to provide the correct spelling and capitalisation as I cannot accept returns due to errors on your part. Bespoke items, such as this necklace are non-returnable, and the order, once placed, cannot be cancelled.
Names cannot be made with all capital letters as my style of writing doesnt make this possible.
The necklace arrives in a smart black and silver box with a magnetic snap fastening. The words 'jemima lumley jewellery' are embossed in silver on the lid. Ribbon and free gift tag come as standard, and standard gift wrapping (brown paper) is available free of charge. Luxury and Christmas wrap are available at an extra cost.
Sterling silver throughout, including clasp and chain.
All silver products should be kept in an air tight box when not being worn.
Sizes vary according to the length of the name. Letters are around 0.7cm to 1cm high, and a five letter word is approximately 3cm long. The thickness of the silver is 0.7cm, while this sounds thin, it means that it is light and easy to wear. Silver is a very strong metal and will withstand daily wearing without becoming fragile.
The chain I use is curb style (for accurate image of it, please look at the pictures of the model wearing the necklace). This is extremely strong but looks dainty, and sits flat on the skin.
