As the BBC raises the curtain on a new series of Strictly Come Dancing, we’ve been getting in the mood for a packed schedule of shows and exhibitions in the run up to Christmas. We’ve had a busy start to the autumn, with events in Salisbury and Edinburgh already under our belts but there are still shows in Sevenoaks, Winchester and Hereford yet to come! Not to mention the famed Goldsmiths’ Fair in London – always a glitzy affair.

We’ve been polishing up our silverware and preparing our new pieces for their debut appearances – even the candlesticks have been rehearsing their steps.

The Classic Candlestick


This year we decided to make July a ‘rest month’ – but that doesn’t mean that we’ve been loafing about watching the tennis and the cricket. Certainly not! We’ve taken a rest from shows this month and dedicated ourselves to spending some much needed time in the workshop, making pieces and indulging in some new designs (watch this space…).

Our workshop Pin-Up this month has to be the ‘Classic Candlestick’. Amid the exciting stages of prototyping new designs and seeking out new shows to exhibit them at, we’ve found ourselves returning to this soothingly simple yet pleasingly elegant piece, proving that not all the best designs are the most complicated. Indeed, the Classic Candlestick is so simple that is almost a line-drawing rendered in 3-D in sterling silver.

Say it with candlesticks!

With supermarket aisles filling up with heart-shaped, rose-adorned chocolates and love tokens, whether you’re loved up or not, Valentine’s Day is hard to miss. And if you are trying to treat a special someone, these days it’s getting harder and harder to be original. Do you go down the traditional route of flowers and cards or try your hand at rustling up a romantic dinner for two? Or are you among those hundreds of people who leave it until 6pm on 13th February…?

Our solution? Say it with candlesticks. And of all our sterling silver designs, the XY Candlesticks are ideal for this kind of social semaphore…

All you have to do is decide which position will best reflect what’s in your heart… Still not sure? Luckily you’ve got plenty to choose from! Here are a few suggestions:
