Put your stamp on it! Design a keyring that'll be beautifully made in burnished copper by hand in Wiltshire.
These hand-crafted keyrings make lovely presents for those who like the understated elegance of this teardrop fob, that's not too large to be carried in the pocket (or sat on!).
Your fob will be made individually by silversmith Victoria Harwood in The English Shipmate's studio in Corsham, Wiltshire. It will be struck on the back with her marker's mark 'VH'.
HOW TO ORDER:
Choose one of the three designs in the main image OR create your own design.
If you wish to create your own design; personalise with up to 8 characters, split over two lines (14 in all). Then choose a font and design stamp if you'd like one.
Please note that the Typewriter font takes up a smidge more space than the cursive Pinafore font. Also some design stamps are larger than others - the sailing boat, large bird, camera and bike for example.
The fobs are hand-stamped on ONE SIDE ONLY - and because there's some hefty hammer work, an impression is left on the back, so unlike engraving we don't stamp the back (except with my maker's mark)
I'm always happy to advise on spacing. You can message me via the 'ask seller a question' button.
Not enough space for your inscription? Why not try our Personalised Handmade Round Copper Keyring as it can take up to 27 characters and two design stamps. Please see our other listings.
We can include: hash tag, centigrade, exclamation marks, parentheses, ampersand, commas, question marks, colons, semi-colons, '@', percentage signs and en dash.
Any punctuation requests other than those listed will be omitted. I'm afraid we can't include accent marks or mathematical symbols.
We take pride in designing the layout to best effect. The variation in spacing and alignment is part of the bespoke nature of this hand-worked item.
Opt for the large stainless steel split ring or the gorgeous, luxury feel of the .925 Sterling Silver Splitring.
The solid copper fob is both oxygen and phosphorous free.
Care: The copper will begin to oxidise and have a darker patina, just polish with a bit of Brasso to keep it shiny! It comes with a care card.
This copper fob is 3.5cm in length and 1.7cm in diameter at the widest point of the oval.
The sterling silver splitring is 2.7cm in diameter and stamped .925 and weighs 6.5g. The stainless steel keyring is 3.3cm in diameter.
