Maker's bio

Bigbury Mint has two distinct aspects to the business – Bigbury Mint Jewellery & Bigbury Mint Medals. Both operate from our traditional metal workshops in Devon and whilst the products for each are very different, much of the equipment, skills and techniques are common across the two sides of the business. The jewellery side produces artisan jewellery and inspirational metal gifts, including necklace pendants, cufflinks, paperweights, christening spoons, earrings, brooches, and sculptures, which are sold through our shop in Ermington, via our website and through our Etsy and Folksy online shops. Most of our jewellery is made in solid silver (recycled 925 Eco Silver), some is made in copper and brass, and we have a range of unique heritage items made from recycled Cornish and Devon Tin ingots. We also provide jewellery-making classes covering a wide range of jewellery-making techniques. The Medal side of the business is MOD licensed to make replica military medals and also produces medals on commission for a very wide variety of organisations including Sandhurst Military Academy, Dartmouth Royal Naval College, the Royal Horticultural Society, East Midlands Ambulance Trust and many more. We also produce commemorative medals ranging from Bevin Boys Medals to Platinum Jubilee Medals – and our newest product will be a commemorative medal and medallion to celebrate the coronation of King Charles III.

Jane reviewed: Rings (choose stacking or personalised ring)

"We had a brilliant time last Wednesday making our stacker and personalised rings. Vicky was an excellent teacher who explained everything very clearly. We all came away with rings we were proud to say we had made ourselves. We will definitely be booking another workshop"
