Get in touch. Use our contact form or call our office telephone number +44 (0) 207 751 8844. Our dedicated team of account managers are delighted to be of assistance. We will ask whether you have an existing design or wish for us to design for you. We will also ask for your budget and what date you need the piece to be completed by. It’s okay to not have all the answers, but the more information you can give will help us to identify the scope of the project and quickly fit it into our workshop schedule.
We are goldsmiths and silversmiths to Her Majesty the Queen and many leading organisations around the world. Our in-house design team are among the brightest minds in the industry, well-equipped to design from scratch on your behalf. We take time to research and explore our clients’ unique identity and heritage to find and highlight motifs that can be incorporated into the design. In many cases we also work side-by-side with our clients’ design team or directly with agencies. We are experts in the design and manufacture of custom commissions in precious metals. We understand how to translate creative artwork into exquisite bespoke silverware.
We don’t try to hide it, clients that commission bespoke silverware require a significant budget. The quality of our work and the materials used is world-class. We shake off our industry’s turn towards mass production. Our highly specialised staff and purpose-built workshops exclusively make each one-of-a-kind commission by hand. Small changes in the design can reduce the number of craft-hours. We always offer a range of options when possible to ensure we can offer you a competitive price. We offer a range of stock trophies and awards, for quick turnarounds and modest budgets.
One of the key questions that we will ask you is ‘when do you need it by?’ Unlike most silversmiths and goldsmiths, Thomas Lyte’s workshops are purpose-built for the design and creation of unexampled custom commissions. The handcrafting process requires many weeks of meticulous work. From enquiry to delivery we often request at least 9 to 12 weeks lead time for a bespoke piece. However, we will always try to accommodate shorter lead times if possible, so don’t let this dissuade you. Get in touch. The experienced master craftspeople at our London-based workshops will advise where small tweaks in the design may speed up the crafting process and allow for tighter timescales.
