The English Shipmate

The English Shipmate


Our voyages of the heart - sailing a beautiful, wooden Yawl on blustery Solent days inspired this collection.

Your message stamped and hammered is somehow forged with meaning and intent; appreciated for its analogue charm in our digital world.

Metal, 3rd and 7th wedding anniversary presents are always being made on the work bench.

We're incurable romantics at The English Shipmate - if our customers represent the romantic pulse of the nation - it's beating wildly!

I never tire of stamping 'I love you." It's an intensely personal business to make special items that you know have so much meaning.

Our key rings are increasingly popular; original, tactile designs, to be thumbed in the pocket by those you love.

If you'd like a variation on the designs here; please don't hesitate to get in touch, it's never too much trouble to work with a customer to make something that will be treasured for years.

What will yours say?


All work is undertaken in my studio near Bath; that's raw metal in, and after some occasional thumb-hitting, bashing and polishing, shiny articles make their way to my local post office...

All my Copper and .925 Silver is supplied by Cookson Gold, premier supplier to the jewellery industry.

Every article is struck with my marker's mark "VH" , and where legally required, fully assayed by The Birmingham Assay Office, whose mark is an Anchor!

I'm a member of The Guild of Jewellery Designers and have been featured in Coast Magazine.
