Big Catch Necklace
This beautiful oxidized silver and 18ct gold pendant is inspired by the quirky fishing villages that are found along Scotland’s East coast.
This sophisticated piece sits beautifully when worn. It’s classic yet whimsical design makes it a perfect gift for any occasion. Made from sterling silver and 18ct gold it features an elegant stylised fish, and a little boat with a tiny gold fish set inside. The pale green peridot is in keeping with the sea and represents the fishing floats that bob up and down on the tide. This necklace has a subtle dark satin finish and features an adorable little hallmark tag which is attached to the clasp and features a tiny hare motif which is unique to Eileen.
The ‘Big Catch’ pendant looks great worn on it’s own or it can be teamed up with other matching items, such as the ‘Twa Fish’ earrings. A number of Eileen’s charm bracelets also feature the same fish design as part of an integral clasp. The pendant is also available in a plain silver satin finish with an aqua-marine bead.
The piece is made from solid sterling silver, 18ct yellow gold and semi-precious stones. All Eileen’s work is handmade in Scotland in her own workshop. The plain silver option has a unique frosty satin finish which echoes the cold wintry landscapes that influence the makers work. In accordance with hallmarking regulations, and where applicable by weight, Eileen’s pieces are hallmarked in Edinburgh, and feature the Assay Office’s iconic Edinburgh Castle stamp.
Oxidized finishes do not need cleaning and they will fade slightly over time. The plain silver option is also easy to maintain. Eileen suggests using silver dip which can be purchased at most high street jewellers. Gently clean the surface using a soft tooth brush. Stones and pearls however should not be exposed to silver dip, to avoid surface damage. Pieces should then be rinsed thoroughly with warm soapy water and dried using a soft paper towel.
The fish is approximately 3cm long. The chain is available in either a 16” or 18” length. Different sizes can be made on request. Please enquire by clicking the “Contact us” link at the bottom of the page.
