About the Hiho team

Established in 1994,  Hiho Silver has been crafting a wide variety of artisanal jewellery designed to take you ‘from mucking out, to going out’. Based in the scenic BlackDown Hills of Somerset, these exquisite pieces are eclectically inspired by the beauty of the Countryside and the rich Equestrian culture which resides there.

Our pieces are made to be loved, made to be lived in and made to make you feel like the best version of yourself. We pride ourselves on authenticity, each piece is designed by us and can be found here on our website, at a variety of stockists as well as at many events up and down the country each year - don’t be afraid to come and say hello!

Hiho is led by Andrew & Emma, with the aim of creating beautiful yet robust pieces to be worn day in, day out no matter the task at hand with the peace of mind that it will still be shining for years to come! While we may be a small team, we are mighty in our commitment to service, our commitment to quality and our commitment to the community we have built over the years.

Whether you are treating a loved one or yourself, we are certain we have something perfect within our range to suit any occasion.

Emma Warren

Job: Our illustrious leader and Owner/MD of the company

Aka: Queen Bee

About me:

I was a Hiho customer well before I became a member of the team and I loved the whole experience of shopping with Hiho – a purple box present was always sure to delight!  I joined Hiho a few years ago now and can honestly say that it’s the best job I‘ve ever done.  Hiho people are really special, and that goes for employees and customers alike.

My main responsibilities are to make sure that we’re always delighting you and to make sure that the team has what they need to do that.

Now for the important stuff…

I love my family, pets, cooking and being in the country…and of course, Hiho!

Pet hates: gory television programmes

Special skill: picking up spiders when the Countess of Contentment finds them in her drawers ;-)

Andrew Ransford

 Show's Manager

Aka: King of the Road

About me: I am really a farmer at heart and absolutely love the countryside with a passion, which is why working on the Shows suits me down to the ground - as I spend most of my time in a field - usually with a couple of sleepy dogs in tow, lazing around on the stand!

I have an absolute passion for salted peanuts and can fall asleep anywhere, which has often resulted in a few extra eyebrows being drawn onto me by well-meaning friends...

Michelle Spiller

Job: Looks after all of our lovely customers, getting our products ordered and here on time and onto the website

Aka: Countess of Contentment

About me: Having been with the company for quite a few years now, I tend to be an all rounder and have various roles such as buying the beautiful stock that you see, keeping the website up and running and most importantly making sure that you are all happy and content with the products and the services that we provide you.

Originally from Devon, but I crossed the border to Somerset and live with my wonderful husband Adam. I love relaxing with a great book and a glass of cider and long walks across the Countryside or by the coast.

Kitty Cat

Job: Office Support & Team Welfare

Aka: Princess Paw's

About me: My main role is to get as much attention as possible from the humans in the office and make sure that they know I am the boss and that i am here for your love and attention. My 2nd most important role is to get lots of cuddles and find the perfect place to snuggle up and fall asleep for a few hours. I normally like to sleep on someones desk and prevent them from working and I have also been known to take the humans chairs when they are not looking. 

I like to roam around the farm that I live on and go on many adventures. I like it when guests pop by, it means more cuddles for me and nomally a load of fluff for them and I have lots of doggy friends that I love to go on walks with. If I am out and about, I try to get back to the office at about 4pm and wait for the postie to arrive. They arrive at about 4.30pm and collect all the customers orders, but before they go I strut my stuff and now all the posties that visit us, feed me treats and give me lots of cuddles too. What a life hey...
