Modern British sterling silver thimble makers

I think it’s time to showcase the skills of the modern British silversmith who has produced thimbles over the last 65 years. With a very small output, by comparison with the silversmiths of yesteryear, these thimbles are largely handmade or machined in non-factory settings. 

From 1976, all assay marks must be re-registered every ten years. I wonder how many of the following silversmiths have needed to do this?

You won’t find any Chester assay marks in this section as the Chester Assay Office closed in 1961.

A third section now lists Modern thimble makers by the initials only of the makers
