Inspirational Pewter Decor

Present Positive

Vilmain, a Rhode Island company, specializes in inspirational pewter designs for the home or office. Each piece is handmade with 100% lead-free, solid cast pewter in simple, geometrically-inspired designs.

Judy Vilmain followed a little inspiration herself when she founded her company. She was a Midwestern college professor when
she decided a life change was in order. Drawing on her family history of craftsmanship as well as her desire to work with her hands, she moved to Rhode Island, a state with a legacy in jewelry-making and metal working, and started Vilmain. So, there is genuine inspiration in her messages and in her designs.

The presentation begins before you even open the box, which is embossed with a message that hints at what’s inside. Each piece is neatly nestled inside. Top to bottom, these designs are specimens of pure craftsmanship and simple good looks.

    We do make some pocket four leaf clover and ornament pieces. A desktop shamrock is a great idea! We look forward to working with the Grommet on future additional items. @Mike

    @Nora What about a paper weight with "Keep Calm" or "Keep Calm and ....". I really like your work, but I can see the forge embedded in a wall or monitor sometime. :)

    We aren't currently set up for this since we use a cast process instead of an engraving. It's a great suggestion for us to consider in the future. @Alison

    a waste of our landfills for personal gratification.
