Chalice, Ciborium and Open Paten Commission 2016 
 
We commissioned two Chalices, a Ciborium, an open Paten, and Monstrance from Mark for our new school chapel. The service offered to us by Mark was outstanding from start to finish. He was more than happy to help us come up with designs and ideas and incorporate what we had asked for into his designs. He visited us the school to help us and to ensure we were getting what we wanted. When the pieces arrived we were delighted. The craftsmanship and quality of all the silverware that Mark made for us is outstanding. Having such service and quality means we would definitely use Mark again and would highly recommend him to others. All our new vessels will be cherished by the school for years to come.

Ciborium Commission 2014 
 
The 'Jenkins Ciborium’ was delivered to us this morning and it was consecrated at the Palm Sunday Eucharist. To say that it is beautiful is an understatement. Everyone is simply delighted with it. Thank you very much for the time and trouble you have taken over the various negotiations about detail, etc. The customising is a great success. The knop in the design of our east window is triumph. I could not be more pleased.

St John's Cross - From Bermuda 
 
I got the cross safely back to Bermuda. Everyone is thrilled with the work that you did and the cross will be carried splendidly in St John's Church for many decades to come. Thanks again for all your work and skill in restoring it. With best regards,

St Cuthbert Cross and Chain 
 
I was already delighted with the cross and chain when I opened the parcel yesterday, but when I got home and was able to examine the cross by magnifying glass, I was even more pleased. The quality both of your silversmithing and of your enameled's work is incredible, and there is a huge amount of detail which I had never expected could be put in without it becoming prohibitively expensive. This really is an extremely accurate replica of the St Cuthbert's Cross - far more so than I ever expected when I commissioned it. I look forward to seeing the original in Durham later this summer; I shall expect to be even more impressed by your work when I can compare yours against the original. Thank you for your hard-work; I look forward to talking to you about my next project this Autumn. Yours Sincerely,

Much oohing and aahing was heard as the parishioners were given their first viewing of your work at the dedication on Friday. A neighbouring priest was particularly impressed wanting to know where we had got them from.! Kindest Regards

Pectoral Cross Commission 
 
Dear Mark I just wanted to let you know how delighted all the ex-curates were with the unique pectoral cross you made for us, and that the new Bishop of Monmouth was absolutely thrilled with it when we presented it to him. As his Chaplain at the service I had the honour of presenting it to the Archbishop of Wales to place upon Bishop Richard. It was the object of much discussion after the service. Bishop Richard is looking forward to wearing for his first visit to see the sisters at Ty Mawr Convent, whose ‘Christ on the living tree’ inspired us in commissioning the cross from you. Here is a link to the Diocesan Facebook page where the cross is on display! Image 1 Image 2 Many thanks once again. All good wishes

Silver Herman - Recently made for the Military 
 
Just thought I would drop you a line to say how thrilled the Commanding Officer was with the 'Herman'. It made it back in time for the medal parade and was centre stage when HRH the Duke of Edinburgh arrived in the CO's office to sign the visitor's book. The Duke himself commented on what an impressive piece of Silver it was!! Needless to say Herman will take pride of place in the Officers' Mess and will grace the table on many a function to come. Thank you once again for the work you did to get him to us in time for our special day. Yours Aye,

Curriers' Company Beadle's Staff Repair 
 
I am most grateful to you for your prompt and expert attention that you gave the repair of the repair of the Curriers' Company Beadle's staff head. This is an ancient and very valuable piece that has been part of the Company for almost 250 years and its repair could only be entrusted to a silversmith experience and skilled in work with items of antiquity. I am delighted with the result. I would be very happy to recommend your services to other Livery Companies, the majority of which have antique silver to maintain. Yours sincerely,

Chalice Restoration 
 
Dear Mark, May I say how thrilled I am with the work you did on my Chalice, the first work done in 44 years. The ring on the chalice is my late mother's engagement ring --- a memory of not only her but my family who presented me with the Chalice when I was ordained. Your work has been appreciated by many of my parishioners as they see what they think is a new Chalice until I explain to them what transpired. Keep up the good work. All good wishes, Yours sincerely,
