Fisherman’s Pearl Necklace
This whimsical yet elegant silver fish and pearl pendant is inspired by the quirky fishing villages that are found along Scotland’s East coast.
Simple yet sophisticated; this piece is so easy to wear and would compliment any outfit. The beautifully stylised forms are inspired by the ‘Silver Darling’s’ which was a fond term once given to the herring which brought much prosperity to the East Coast fishing communities.
The fish has a subtle frosted finish which contrasts beautifully against the pearls grey lustre, mirroring the cold wintry landscapes that inspire Eileen’s work. Eileen likes to use a play on words creating a fun talking point; making this adorable pendant the perfect gift for anyone’s darling!
The Fisherman’s 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 made from solid sterling silver and has an adorable little hallmarking tag which is attached to the clasp, and features a tiny hare motif which is unique to the maker. All Eileen’s work is handmade in Scotland in her own workshop. 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.
The piece is very 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.
