Capture something unique

When it’s for a special person or that ‘once in a lifetime’ occasion, you want a gift that is unique. You want something which is bespoke and personal, and something you are proud to give.

Perhaps it is a loved one’s milestone birthday or a special couple’s anniversary. Is it your child’s prom or graduation – an occasion that should be marked with the perfect gift? Maybe you want something a little bit different as a Christmas present this year (instead of another pair of socks?!).

Here at the English Charm Company, we not only offer a huge range of present options, but also a variety of ways to make a gift completely individual to your requirements.

What will you discover

Take a look around our website and you will the find an array of beautiful items on offer.

We don’t want you to have to pick something off the high street. We want you to have the opportunity to purchase something different, something exceptional and something bespoke.

We can help you create wonderful pieces of jewellery, including silver keepsakes and charms, featuring fingerprints, handprints, doodles, artworks and handwriting. 

We also offer a range of casting options, including 2D stone outprints and 3D casting, which can feature hands or feet of your baby or a whole family cast. Our newborn casts are a particular favourite.

Don’t forget your precious pet either. We can create silver jewellery items using paw prints, as well as take casts of the paw or even the nose of your furry friend! These make gorgeous keepsakes.

Come and enjoy the experience

A great thing about purchasing a gift from the English Charm Company is the experience. We offer a one-to-one service with individual appointments, arranged at your convenience. These appointments allow time for us to discuss your requests and ideas. It is time devoted to you, in order to find out exactly what you want.  We like working ‘with’ you. And it is all included in the price.

In terms of the gift itself, we take care to capture every detail. Whether it is a fingerprint or a cast, we make every effort to record every crease, every line, every aspect.

Your gift will be handcrafted, finished and perfected by an individual who truly cares about the significance of your gift. We want you to be proud of the piece we create.

Furthermore, all of our items are carefully presented and wrapped. We take pride in the presentation of our products. Our charms, for example, are packaged in a high-quality box, thread on a beautiful silk ribbon, with a certificate of authenticity, a polish cloth and care instructions included.

What makes us different

We don’t stick to any specifications! The joy of being an experienced craftswoman and silversmith is the chance to experiment and try new things, and, at the English Charm Company, we have the freedom to do just that.

Take a look at some of the products available – if you like what you see, then fantastic. Contact us to find out more.

Handprint Footprint Fingerprint Jewellery

Added: 23rd October 2015

We all like something we can treasure, whether it’s a family heirloom, or a personalised gift given in celebration of a special occasion or achievement. Jewellery doesn’t need an occasion, especially handmade jewellery. When “handmade”, no one charm or bracelet or bangle is the same as the next, so you have something that’s uniquely yours to own.

The very definition of ‘keepsake’ is an item of jewellery which has been hand-crafted and made specifically for you or someone close to you which reminds that person of a particular event or moment in time. Perhaps there’s a particular moment or memory you’d like to remember always? Why not capture that moment in a charm?

It is here at the English Charm Company, where keepsakes are made; where cufflinks, key rings, silver charms for bracelets, necklaces and other gifts are crafted for each individual customer. You might want your child’s artwork to be included on a silver charm? Or perhaps you’d like a handprint, a fingerprint, a paw print or an image transferred onto a charm?

Whatever your specific requirements, each item is personalised to meet those requirements, so that you’re left with something which is completely personal and bespoke; a unique keepsake which is yours and yours alone.

Handprint Footprint Fingerprint Jewellery

review handprint footprint jewellery by what's good to do

Added: 8th September 2015

Reviewed by Debbie Talbot

I have wanted to get hand or footprint charms made of my twins hand or footprints ever since they were born. I was therefore delighted to come across The English Charm Co.

The lady I dealt with was so helpful, taking me through my options. Once I had decided on what I wanted and my order placed I was sent an impression kit containing inkless wipes and special paper which captures the prints. I then emailed them across to the company. I took 2 sets of prints while my wriggly boys were sleeping. I was advised that their handprints would work better as charms and so I opted for their handprints with their name on the front of a heart shaped silver charm and their date of birth on the back.

It seemed no time at all (around a week or so) before the lovely lady was back in touch telling me that my order was ready to send out.  I was so excited that I was delighted to receive pictures of the charms taken before they were posted.

An amazing summer off with the kids, lovely holidays and a relaxing time away. I have still been busy though here is my July/August Newsletter, exciting award news and a new product range.

Mumpreneur UK Winner

One of the top 100 Mumpreneurs in the UK 2015. I was so pleased to find an email in my inbox last Thursday, telling me I had been selected from thousands of entries to become one of the top 100 Mumpreneurs in the UK for 2015. It certainly brightened up an already very sunny day. My daughter was the first to congratulate me, as my no.1 fan bless her. Award ceremony will be held on 14th November 2015 in Warwickshire.

Wooden Keepsake with Image Transfer

I now have a new range of handmade beautiful vintage style wooden plaques, wall hangings and memory boxes. They capture photographs, handprints and footprints, they can also include names and DOB. The prints can be in any colour. The photographs work best in black and white but I can pull out some colour to highlight something specific in the picture, as I have done in these photographs.
