Silversmith J.A Campbell set to close after 60 years

No official closing date has yet been announced

Brentwood-based silversmiths J.A Campbell has announced it is set to close after 60 years in the business.

The company was founded by John and Barbara Campbell and is one of the few companies to still use traditional sterling silversmith methods

After a pre-apprenticeship course at the Central School of Arts and Crafts in London and during his apprenticeship, Campbell started working in the family’s redundant chicken shed before moving on to a purpose built workshop at his parents’ new house in Woodford Essex. He later moved to Clerkenwell and Perseverance Works Hackney, before finally setting up workshops in Brentwood in Essex.

No official closing date has yet been announced.

John Campbell said:“[I am] proud to have been able to leave a small mark on society and hang up my hammers.”
