Celebrating our Craft
A Treasure Hunt
For over 155 years, we have been hand-crafting items of exceptional beauty; with rare time-honoured techniques mastered over the the decades. To signify our birthday on the 28th May, we have worked hard to collate items of exceptional note from across the world; from trophies to bracelets with a rather "magical" inspiration, our exciting exhibition will showcase some the very best pieces we have created; some which have never been seen in public before.
The Art of Magic
The Lumos Maxima bracelet: a bewitching charm bracelet created in 2013, inspired by J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter stories. To the author, charm bracelets are imbued with memory and sentiment - “They have meaning beyond the mercenary. They are personal amulets.” This unique piece of jewellery raised £20,000 for Lumos when sold at auction. It will be a star attraction at our exhibition.
We are extremely proud to have made a number of sporting trophies celebrating achievements from across the world. For 150 years Hamilton & Inches’ talented craftspeople have passed their knowledge and skills from one generation to the next, creating trophies to honour sporting greats.
"Our 155th year is the perfect time to celebrate our past creations. Celebrating Our Craft allows us to showcase a collection of exquisite items and share the incredible stories behind them."
- Victoria Houghton, CEO of Hamilton & Inches
