Twa Fish Necklace
This whimsical yet elegant silver fish pendant is inspired by the quirky fishing villages that are found along Scotland’s East coast.
This gorgeous piece with it’s contrasting silver and gold fish looks stunning when worn. 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 pendant has a beautiful subtle frosted finish which echoes the cold wintry landscapes that inspire Eileen’s work, making them truly unique. Eileen likes to use a play on words creating a fun talking point; making these adorable silver fish earrings the perfect gift for anyone’s darling!
The pendant looks great worn on it’s own, or it can be teamed up with other matching items such as the 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 sterling silver and 18ct yellow gold vermeil. The oval belcher chain and the fish charms are all solid silver, which gives the pendant a lovely weight, reflecting the quality of the piece. 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 easy to maintain. Eileen suggests using gold 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 large fish is approximately 3cm long and the smaller fish are approximately 2cm 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.
