A few weeks back I made myself this 9ct gold swallow necklace, inspired by the Sailor Jerry Swallow tattoo.
This beautiful 9ct gold ‘Tattoo Inspired’ Swallow necklace has received so many compliments we have decided to make one for our in-house, ready-to-wear collection of handmade jewellery….
Historically, the swallow is a symbol used by sailors to show off their sailing experience. Seeing swallows was a sign that their travels were nearing an end. And as these birds never traveled far out to sea, their sighting meant that land was near and their long voyage was almost over.
Today the swallow has many symbolic meanings, representing freedom, care and affection or everlasting love towards family and friends, related to the fact that swallows mate for life.
Our hand engraved gold swallow necklace is the perfect gift for a loved one, a true token of love, which might represent a journey or a new chapter in someones life, perfect as a graduation gift or for a daughter leaving home for the first time.
A gift with symbolic meaning, worn as a sentimental reminder that they are forever loved.
Here are a few progress shots direct from our benchpeg, showing you how our little gold swallow was made…
