Life is all about the crew you sail with; our voyages of the heart. The English Shipmate is inspired by halcyon days sailing a classic wooden Yawl between Blighty and Brittany.
Founded in 2013 by Silversmith Victoria Harwood: "It's a privilege to create bespoke items that you know have so much meaning. That they'll be thumbed in the pocked, handed down through families, and are part of creating a special memory."
WHAT WILL YOURS SAY?
Victoria makes everything carefully by hand in her studio in Corsham, near Bath; each item takes hours of bench time to create. The only machinery is a bench polisher for that final, high shine. Every article is struck with her maker's mark and fully assayed by The Birmingham Assay Office - whose mark is an Anchor - where legally required. After a career as a national magazine journalist and creative, silversmithing has emerged as a passion and full-time occupation.
