This charming ptarmigan charm is from Eileen Gatt’s Be Charmed collection and features a beautiful handcrafted ptarmigan which is a member of the grouse family.
Eileen has been inspired by icy winter landscapes and the wildlife that inhabit these harsh environments. This beautifully stylised ptarmigan captures it’s majestic character. It’s pure white plumage is echoed in the soft white finish, retaining a pure and simple aesthetic. The charm has a subtle satin finish.
This charm is the perfect addition to any charm bracelet. Each Eileen Gatt piece is lovingly packaged and nestled in tissue paper within a beautiful branded white box.
This lovely charm looks particularly great when grouped with other ice themed charms, such as the abstract bear, polar bear, hare, fox, cloud, snowflake, hare and seal.
The charm is made from sterling silver and the finish is easy to maintain; Eileen suggests using silver dip which can be purchased from any high street jewellers. Apply gently using a toothbrush, rather than fully submerging the piece, then rinse thoroughly with warm soapy water and dry using a soft paper towel. 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 ptarmigan is around 17x7mm wide.
