‘Padgham and Putland’ in the early years worked mainly as outworkers to the established silver trade. During this time they were able to illustrate new pieces which were of extremely high standards. Through the many years of trade, they have built up a loyal relationship with a few trade companies, private societies and individuals. They have been invited on to some exciting design and restoration projects which were through the worshipful company of Goldsmiths.

One of the most prestigous projects that Padgham and Putland have been involved with was the Church 2000, which was commisioned by Bvlgari, the Italian jewellers. The project was to design and make fourty pieces of church plate for the Vatican, for a new church in celebration of the Millenium, the Dio Padro Misericordioso in Rome, designed by Richard Meier. On completion of the project Padgham and Putland alongside Nicola Bvlgari were lucky enough to present the work to the Pope John Paul II in the Vatican.
