Our Story

Flinn and Steel began as a micro-business, cooked up by the dynamic husband and wife duo Jess and Ollie. Fast forward three years, and we've levelled up into the realm of small businesses, now boasting a fantastic team of twenty-five amazing members!

Flinn and Steel kicked off with Ollie going all in on crafting each ring in their cozy Peak District workshop at Jess and Ollie's home. The business sprouted from an infamous tale of two rings that decided to go on an adventure, a disappearing act like no other...

Jess had just picked up four stainless steel rings from a supplier in Sheffield and bam! They vanish on her way home. With weddings approaching and no way to replace them, panic sets in. Cue Ollie, who suggests, "Why not make our own rings?" And just like that, a week later, he's got a lathe and is mastering the ring-making game.

With Jess's business savvy and Ollie's craftsmanship, the two formed Flinn and Steel. And as the business grew and expanded, the couple looked to commission pieces from some of the best artisan makers, specialist manufacturers and workshops across the UK and Europe. 

This is how Flinn and Steel functions now, commissioning pieces from exceptional artisanal makers and using an array of alternative metals, all the while forefronting an eco-friendly ethos.

Nestled in Sheffield, the beating heart of steel craftsmanship, Flinn and Steel's showroom and offices sit in the leafy suburb of Tapton. As the business undergoes continuous expansion, the company's horizons broaden, and Jess is currently exploring the prospect of establishing a new showroom in the bustling heart of the city!

Ollie has taken a step back from the company, swapping ring making for another one of his passions, furniture crafting! Jess remains an integral part of the F&S team as Managing Director, steadfastly nurturing its full potential, and enjoys Ollie's furniture at home, even if a table leg or two is slightly wobbly!
