Make your kilt stand out with this striking "winged sword" kilt pin. Cast in sterling silver and further worked by hand, it has lots of depth and character.
The design itself is based on the sword of the Maeshowe Dragon, a stone carving on Orkney thought to have been carved in the 12th century by one of the Norsemen who broke into the Maeshowe.
The pin is made from medical grade stainless steel and will not rust.

I try to represent my pieces as accurately as possible but being handmade, none are identical and you may occasionally see "the hand of the maker" - minor flaws and tool marks which can add to the charm of a piece and distinguish it from a mass-produced product.
There may be minor variations in shapes, sizes and finishes, adding individuality to the piece. Gemstones may vary in exact colour and (where appropriate) inclusions, marbling etc, but where a pair is used (for example in stud earrings), I try to match them as closely as possible.
Packaging may vary slightly from that shown.
