Welcome to The Handmade Plaque Co.

about us

My name is Carole Peacham … The Handmade Plaque Co. was formed in 2008 when I decided to turn my craft hobby into a part-time business.  I was working full-time in an administration job when I started the Handmade Plaque Co. and continued to juggle both jobs for a further 7 years. 

In early 2015, I was offered redundancy in my full-time job where I had worked for 17 years …. and accepted it!

This opportunity meant I could turn my passion into a full-time business.  I am never more at home than with a paintbrush in one hand and a piece of wood in the other!  I just adore designing and creating; helping people to preserve their special memories forever!

I work from my home in Waltham Cross, Hertfordshire.

“Quality is never an accident; it is always the result of high intention, sincere effort, intelligent direction and skillful execution; it represents the wise choice of many alternatives.”
