The Hangman and Blacksmith

The Hangman and Blacksmith is a collection of handmade solid silver jewellery by two Cumbria artisans. The name is a tongue in cheek take on our addresses. one lives at Gallows Hill and the other at The Old Smithy. We met six years ago attending a silversmithig course in Cartmel and became great friends and have now joined forces in this business. We have different styles, Sue is the delicate, intricate one and Ailsa is big and bold. Our jewellery is mostly solid silver but we do dabble in gold and copper. We use genuine gemstones and our designs are one offs with the occasional limited edition pieces. Our jewellery is ever evolving as we learn new techniques and our inspiration comes from all that surrounds us.
