What is Hallmarking?

Country Designs by Lisa hallmarking London Assay Office What is Hallmarking?  Well it’s not the 925 or 999 stamp you often see on a piece of silver jewellery.  It’s a full makers mark that has been stamped or laser marked by one of 4 assay offices in the UK.  I am registered with the London Assay Office.  You can tell which assay office…

What is Hallmarking?  Well it’s not the 925 or 999 stamp you often see on a piece of silver jewellery.  It’s a full makers mark that has been stamped or laser marked by one of 4 assay offices in the UK.  I am registered with the London Assay Office.  You can tell which assay office has stamped the piece by the symbol in the mark, for London it is the lions head.

Anyone that sells precious metal (silver, gold platinum) must display the hallmark notice, either online or on their shop or stall otherwise they are breaking the law.  If trading standards catch them they can be fined and have all their stock confiscated!  A very scary idea!

I work from my studio located in Scalloway, Shetland which is open to visitors. It is situated next to my large hillside garden which is also open to visitors as part of Scotlands gardens, raising money for charity.

I am delighted to be part of The British craft house and thank you for looking at my shop!  Please note it will be kept up to date and fully sticked with new items as they become available.

Setting up a new shop!

What a strange year 2020 has been! Back in January myself and my colleague Keli were working flat out completing wedding stationery commissions ready for weddings happening this year and then the news about the outbreak in China started to seep through. By the beginning of February I said to Keli that we wouldn’t be taking any more orders now as I thought that most weddings were going to be cancelled. 

So, at the beginning of March I shut all of my online shops as I wasn’t certain I’d be able to deliver anything as the postal services were likely to be reduced. After about 6 weeks I decided to open up just to simple orders than could be posted in a postbox.

Over the past few months I’ve had lots of time to work on gift ideas like note-cards, prints and notebooks and I’ve found they have kept me quite busy! I think perhaps people are sending more letters to each other or notes of thanks.

Though I will continue to make wedding stationery I’m going to concentrate on small letterbox gifts for the near future and that’s why I decided to open a shop with the British Craft House!

I hope you will support my shop and other small businesses adapting to the times!
