Really pleased with this! Victoria was very helpfully beforehand advising when I was enquiring about personalising a keyring and was very quick replying to my questions. The keyring arrived very quickly after I placed a order and it was wrapped and packaged with a lot of care. The keyring is beautiful and is just perfect. Thank you x

The item is really lovely and unique. It made an astonishing gift. I was very pressed for time and Victoria manufactured and posted it within several hours of my order. I got it in time and absolutely recommend the shop both for quality and customer service!

A trio of custom silver keyring made on Friday. One is going to the States, one to the North and one to be a gift for a husband to be! So much love at the start of a marriage to celebrating 25 years! I love being a small part of it - thank you blush
Made today for couples who are celebrating 25 years together! Feel so privileged to me making such special keepsakes. It's a cold day here, Jeffrey our mini schnauzer pup had toddled off to bed. Love from The English Shipmate crew xx

About

Sailor turns silversmith, inspired by voyages of the heart and milestones worth celebrating!

Welcome aboard! I'm Victoria, the founder of The English Shipmate.

I make each item from scratch in my studio near Bath - a labour of love. It's a privilege to create something for others to share with the people they love; that'll last forever with a lick of polish.

After all, life is about the crew you sail with; our voyages of the heart.

We are delighted to have been commissioned by the RNLI.

We carefully source as many materials as possible from the British Isles. All our silver and copper comes from CooksonGold, based in Birmingham's jewellery quarter and hallmarked, where appropriate, by the Birmingham Assay Office.

Our story
Before a life of bashing metal, I worked as a national magazine journalist, a typography and literature lecturer and creative for leading design agencies for household brands.

The English Shipmate is inspired by sailing a friend's old wooden Yawl with my long time love.

Also a desire to work from home to support my little deckhand, who has Asperger's syndrome (ASD in new clinical jargon).

So every time you support my shop, you're helping us keep a steady course as we navigate neurodiversity in all its splendour.

So thank you - we like the cut of your jib!
