A wonderful gift for the captain of your heart, show him how much his 'crew' appreciate him with this handsome, hand-worked key ring.

A great gift for the hard-to-buy-for and the skipper who has everything! An ideal anniversary present and a lovely validation of one's family.

This design is handmade by former sailor, Victoria Indigo Harwood, in her studio near Bath and struck with her marker's mark "VH".


First decide on the font you'd like. The fonts available are either Typewriter, which is clear, or Pinafore which is more ornate. Then if you'd like your fob in either Copper or Sterling Silver.

Personalise with up to 11 letters, in upper and lower case as required.

Children's names, boat names, surnames or other variations can all be accommodated, if they aren't too long.

If you'd like a variation on the design or are unsure if the personalisation you'd like will fit, please do get in touch.


If you select gift wrapping; your keyring will be packaged in a white gift box tied with ribbon, and can be sent directly to your gift recipient.


If you would like it sent directly to the recipient, just edit the name and address at checkout, enter your short gift message and tick gift wrap under 'add gift options.'

The message will be printed but no price information will be included

made from:

The solid copper fob is both oxygen and phosphorous free.

The silver fob is .925 solid sterling silver, which is harder and more durable sterling silver and not PMC, Fine silver (99.9) or recycled silver.

CARE: Buff with a silver polishing cloth to prevent tarnish. The copper will begin to oxidise and have a darker patina, just polish with a bit of Brasso to keep it shiny!

The copper and silver fobs are planished and hand-domed to give the lovely dappled appearance. Planishing is a metalworking technique that involves finely shaping the surface with a planishing hammer.

The fob will be hand-stamped; as hand stamping isn't uniform, the variation in spacing and alignment is part of the bespoke nature of this hand-worked item.


The Copper fob measures 3.3cm and the Sterling Silver fob is 3cm in diameter and 1mm thick.

The stainless steel split ring is 3.3cm in diameter.
