Swallow tattoo heart & flower
I’ve always been a fan of tattoo artwork, Sailor Jerry style has been an inspiration for my designs over the years, the swallow symbol is a particular favourite of mine. Back in the day sailors would only be allowed to wear a swallow tattoo once they’d sailed across the sea and returned home successfully. Swallows are a migrating bird that return home annually. Sailors believed swallows would return their soul back home should anything happen to them at sea.
The hand shapes are inspired by Victorian era jewellery and the designs have been enamelled and hand painted.
The hands are cut from copper and have numerous layers of enamel glass that is kiln fired at 800 degrees celsius. The swallow details are hand painted and fired several times to give a glossy finish. The setting is made from sterling silver and comes with a 45cm /18″ sterling chain.
The pendant is 55mm high x 28mm wide.
