Hoppers Collaboration With Andrew Geoghegan

Posted on by Matt P.J Dip / Posted in Uncategorized, Website News | Comments Off on Hoppers Collaboration With Andrew Geoghegan

Since 1998, the award winning designer Andrew Geoghegan has been garnering a reputation for precision-designed jewellery; for pieces that unify sometimes seemingly contradictory elements – angular facets and soft curves, warm shades and metallic coldness. The spirit and ambition of each creation is to enhance and illuminate beauty, never to eclipse it; to complement and invigorate it. Originally working out of his studio in the lush hills of Yorkshire, Andrew now spends time in various European locations as a way of inspiring his work.

Andrew Geoghegan: Multi award winning British jewellery designer

This Christmas, we at S.T.Hopper of Boston, have collaborated with the multi award winning jewellery designer Andrew Geoghegan (who’s accolades include Jewellery Designer of the Year 2014, Editors Choice International Jewellery London 2015). This partnership has created a totally unique design to reflect the heritage and history of the firm. The simple Art Deco inspired design harks back to a time in 1926 when Stanley T Hopper first threw open his doors in the historic Market Town of Boston.

Claypoole Jewellers was based in Boston’s Strait Bargate and was eventually taken on by Stanley T Hopper in 1926

It was decided that the piece of jewellery was to be a quality ring, beautifully crafted in 18ct white gold and set with a stunning aquamarine to the centre, flanked on each shoulder by exquisite round brilliant cut diamonds.

The beautiful ‘1926’ Aquamarine ring exclusively made for S.T Hopper Boston

 

The choice of aquamarine was an easy one, it’s long been a favourite for vintage jewellery, but with the more recent Royal Wedding and the ‘Diana Ring’ that the Duchess of Sussex was seen wearing on the evening of her wedding has meant that Aqua has seen a huge renaissance. For S T Hopper to be able to join forces with an outstanding British designer such as Andrew Geoghegan was a fantastic opportunity for us as a firm to show just what we are all about. We are absolutely thrilled with the outcome.

Stanley shown here started the company in 1926 and we’re still going strong 92 years later!

Posted on by Matt P.J Dip / Posted in Uncategorized, Website News | Comments Off on Stag & Ox Horn Giftware Updated!

Prepare for all that’s to come on Game of Thrones by treating yourself to one of these natural material, handmade drinking vessels! Using traditional methods, skilled horn carvers at Abbeyhorn have produced a range of quality goods that are both captivating, functional and official suppliers of the drinking horns and horn tankards as seen throughout the amazing Game of Thrones series!

Abbeyhorn have been in business for over 250 years when the art of horn carving was prolific. Today’s Artisans still use these traditional skills, handed down over generations, to bring you this natural and appealing giftware. Sadly Abbeyhorn are one of the last manufacturing horn business in the UK. In fact there is only a handful of companies worldwide that continue this tradition. They use Ankole Cattle horn which is a by-product from family farms in West Africa. Also antler shed by Scottish Red Deer, one of the largest of the deer species in the UK. The Stags grow antlers in the Spring and shed them at the end of Winter.

No two pieces of horn ever have the same colouration making each piece unique and individual to make that perfect gift. The materials Abbeyhorn work with are all an organic substance which when handled with the correct care can last a life time.

Other horn giftware is available in-store and online such as stag handled letter openers, cheese knives and keyrings. All can be found on our website by clicking HERE

Each stag handled piece is a one of a kind so a perfect, practical gift

#ThrowbackThursday

Let’s take another trip down Memory Lane……

 

Today on our Facebook and Twitter pages we have another look down memory lane. We come across this image when the shop was located in Strait Bargate

This great picture would have been taken circa 1950’s of a very busy day in Strait Bargate! With what looks to be a policeman in the centre of the road to help ease the traffic congestion. You can just make out our shop to centre left of picture and the Hoppers clock, Masons, Thomas Kitwood to the right and the Red Lion pub which was one of the towns oldest pubs. A great picture
