" Totally brilliant and unique. In a world full of cheap mass production who wouldnt want a piece of this. Quality and individuality, the best gift money can buy. "
Facebook review from M.B. Sheffield, February 2018
" I bought a gorgeous Bookmark for a present. Sent a msg to see if I could arrange collection instead of waiting for the post. Jim hand delivered it for me the same evening. Couldn’t ask for a better service. Thank you [😁] I will definitely buy from Quirky Metals again. [😊] "

Quirky Metals, namely Jim and Laura, have a workshop in Sheffield, England. This little workshop is where they develop and make quirky pieces of metalwork in pewter and other base metals and have done since 2014. This husband and wife team have been recognised for their pewter smithed designs by The Worshipful Company of Pewterers, London, having won awards at The Annual Pewter Live Competition since 2015 when the range called " Hook ,Line & Sinker" won First Prize.
Jim and Laura's designs include modern day keepsakes, small gift items, jewellery and collectibles including clocks, bug & bee bowls, posy vases, wallhangings, jewellery & bookmarks. Their work has a distinctive quirkiness to it taking inspiration from the natural world.
