Quality and detailed design

One of the oldest clubs in

golf, Muirfield in Scotland, has

recently completed a major

redevelopment. Part of the

redevelopment process was the

creation of the new Muirfield

Room, which was carried out

by Barnstaple-based Bobblehat.

“This was tremendously

exciting for us and is testament

to our attention to detail and

quality of workmanship,” says

sales director John Courtney.

“As the building dates

back to 1891, every detail was

scrutinised and signed off by

their heritage committee who

were great to work with.”

This is the second major

golf-based refit undertaken

by Bobblehat, who two years

ago designed and fitted out the

Centurion Club pro-shop near

St Albans.

Katie and brother Kit

Heath founded the design

partnership in 1984, taking

inspiration from the beauty

of their North Devon home

and timeless British style. Kit

had melted down the family

candlesticks to create sterling

silver jewellery that he sold

to friends and family. He also

sold to gift and jewellery shops

from his VW camper van while

Katie collaborated and led the

creative side until both took

non-executive roles in 2000.

Professional Jewellery

recognises Katie’s achievements

since returning to the business

full-time in 2014. This includes

winning Fashion Jewellery

Brand of the Year at the PJ

Awards and, in 2018, moving

away from a US distributor to

dealing direct with US retailers.

It says the firm is now doing

well in a tough market and

Katie has brought innovation

back into the business.
