About Us

Harrison & Harrison is a small, family-run business. When you place an order for blanks with us it will most likely have been manufactured by one of us!

The business began in 1970 as a cottage workshop, producing a range of basic jewellery sold at local markets and fairs and later to gift shops across the UK. The shapes for that first range were fashioned using one ancient press (today it is still in use and as good as ever), acquired at an engineering auction for £50.00. The shapes were hand‐finished to produce a collection of pendants, rings, bracelets and eardrops, which sold pretty well in their day. Today we are still located within a few miles of our market origins in Hemel Hempstead, alongside our thriving jewellery studio.

At craft markets we soon encountered a number of copper enamellers, and our 'wow' moment arrived in 1972 when we saw the work of Janna Hodgson (still going strong at www.jewellerythatworks.com). From that moment we were hooked on enamelled copper jewellery. At that time the small range of shapes available to enamellers was pretty boring and unimaginative, so we decided to broaden our range and by the 1980s our copper shapes and jewellery businesses had diverged and Harrison & Harrison grew to become the main supplier of copper stampings to UK enamellers and jewellery makers that it is today.

The journey has not been easy. To meet modern expectations of quality we have invested continually john-harrison.pngin design, tooling and workshop equipment. Every shape requires a high precision bespoke tool and specialist engineering skills to ensure a good quality result and the range must be continually refreshed to keep our commercial customers ahead of the game! It has been worthwhile though and we find great satisfaction in shipping our blanks to craftsmen and women all over the world.

We intend to keep improving our range of products for our many loyal customers. We hope you find our catalogue interesting and if you have ideas for any new shapes then let us know !

With best wishes from the team to all our customers. 

John Harrison
