Six Pips



    Evening all. Some new treasure this week! But only for the Buoys Club. I could not resist in showing you this, to tempt you over… I bought some vintage silk ties at auction, the likes of Dior, Liberty, Hermes and numerous makers from Savile Row and had them made into Schofield straps! They are really something! Very Limited with a tie

    Evening All! I have been in deepest North Wales. The weight of the place is a power-up. So, time for a heavy poem. Solitude by Ella Wheeler Wilcox. Laugh, and the world laughs with you; Weep, and you weep alone; For the sad old earth must borrow its mirth, But has trouble enough of its own. Sing, and the hills will

    Evening all! Well, what a show! Ireland was just the best as it always is and the show, the main reason for going, was brilliant. From an exhibitor’s point of view it was all class, so much talking I think I have permanently damaged some cords. Anyway, relevant to you is the fact you missed out, not just with Schofield but

    Evening all! A quick Crash of the Pips as we are in Ireland prepping for tomorrow’s watch show in Waterford. We are proudly showing off the Treasure Watch and Strange Lights, maybe a paper dialled, blu-tac movement prototype, that we will make real later in the year! General housekeeping – Man! There was some activity over the Milanese bracelets, we sold out twice over! Rest assured if I have not answered

    Evening all! I came across an old Pip about Hikaru Dorodango, the Japanese art of moulding a mud ball into a perfect sphere by hand. I bring it up again here 7 years on because perhaps it is more pertinent than ever. If we imagine a continuum of what we do now on the left, and where we want to be and what we want to do on the right, I wonder how far along you would plot your position? I suspect not even halfway. But what if we could only find the time for admirable pursuits? I admit that making mud balls is at the extreme right end.

    Evening all! Happy New Year to you! Oh my gosh, what a year that was! Still, we take a deep breath and crack on. With all the enthusiasm in the world I see 2022 as particularly exciting, I am so keen to share new Schofield projects with you and surely will do over the next few months. But before we  look too far forward

    Evening all! Schofield has been closed with flu! Like actual real flu, so no ‘you’ve got a cold then’ because I am devoid of a sense of humour which proves it is flu! Anyway, the Pips must be Pipped! So here we are. It seems that there is no other reason for the month December other than Christmas Day, at least in my house. I’m not complaining because I love Christmas with the same enthusiasm as my daughters. Suitably in the mood let’s start with this poem that comes around every year…

    Evening all. A proper write-up in Fratello – Mr N is a good writer – a line like “There is a genuineness and earnestness to everything Giles Ellis designs. “ makes me walk a little taller. Read the whole piece here.
