Celebrating Our Brothers and Sisters

In the USA, most states celebrate Siblings Day on 10th April.  While we don’t mark this day in the UK, we think it’s a great idea that should be celebrated all over the world.  After all, we’ve known our siblings all our lives, and they know us better than anyone, so why not stop and appreciate these very special people in our lives.

We wanted to show you some of the beautiful sibling pieces that our families have asked us to make for them.  These sculptures and pieces of jewellery capture the special bonds that exist between brothers and sisters from such a young age.

5 Truly Unique Ways to Say I Love You

As Valentine’s Day comes round again, it can be tricky to find new and original ways to celebrate the love and unity of your relationship. 

If you are looking for a gift that is unique, thoughtful and deeply personal, look no further – we specialise in creating pieces that are true one-offs.   These aren’t the ‘off the shelf and add a personal message’ variety.  The conception, design and finish is all up to you.  So just get imagining!

Here are our top 5 truly unique ways to say “I love you”.

 1. Casting Your Hands Together

“Holding hands is aBronze Hand Clasps, Couple Holding Hands By Wrightson and Platt promise to one another that, for just a moment, the two of you don’t have to face the world alone.”  

Why not book a casting, present your lover with a personalised gift card on the day, then enjoy choosing the design and material together and you will have created a tangible reminder of the strength of your love and the essence of your relationship


2. Exchange Fingerprint Rings

“Our fingerprints don’t fade from the lives we touch”

Take each other’s fingerprints this Valentine’s Day and we will hand-engrave them onto a matching pair of eternity (or even wedding) rings.   Just watch our simple ‘How To’ video, take your prints, then fill out the order form and we can create a pair of stunning rings that truly will be two of a kind.

3. Fingerprint Jewellery for Her

“Wouldn’t it be the perfect crime if I stole your heart and you stole mine?”

If she already has a charm bracelet or pendant, add a heart-shaped charm bearing your fingerprint as a way to be close to her even when you’re apart. 

4. Fingerprint Cufflinks for Him

Cufflinks designed by you and made by us.  As well as your fingerprints, we can add a hand engraved inscription – a secret little love note, perhaps?

5. Treasure That Cork-Popping Moment!

Whatever you’ve got planned, make sure you hang on to the cork from that all-important bottle of bubbly. Then just send us the cork with your special message and we will plate it for you in silver or gold and attach a sterling silver disc hand-engraved with your chosen words.

A date for the diary.

As fast as the New Year has swept in, we have looked at our calendar and it is nearly February! There is a date in the diary approaching that makes hearts flutter, yes it is less than a month until Valentine’s Day. But rest assured, we know that some of those heart flutters are related to gift ideas; finding a special gift for your loved one for Valentine’s Day can be a stressful task (and trust us our team knows from experience!).

This year why not break that ‘roses are red’ tradition and do something simple, personal and unique? Something that is as simple as pencil to paper. This Valentine’s Day exchange finger prints. It is something that uniquely identifies the person we love so much, no two fingerprints will ever be identical.

So take some time together and exchange fingerprints this Valentine’s Day. Don’t worry we’ll even show you how to capture every tiny detail.

You will need the following:

  1. Our ‘how to take the perfect fingerprint’ video.
  2. A pencil.
  3. A note pad.
  4. A roll of clear sticky tape.
  5. You and your partner.

Our easy guide for taking the perfect fingerprint.

Now you have exchanged fingerprints, why not have them engraved on a rather special pendant for her or cufflinks for him?
