A Silver Highland Cow Pendant (Large)
(or Heilan Coo as we call them in Scotland!)
Our bonny Silver Highland Coo range are some of our favourite things to make and whether it’s a Silver Highland Cow Pendant (Large), Tie Tac or Pin, every one has it’s very own personality. That’s because we make them one shaggy hair at a time!
Just look at the sparkle in his eye! It’s a lovely peachy Cubic Zirconia!
This chunky chap is about 3 cm tall and would love to hang out with you on his 46 cm (18″) sterling silver chain! He will arrive in his very own gift box.
We can even make you a Coo to your own specifications. So a certain tilt of the head, shape of horns, chewing grass or flowers or maybe a wee bit windswept? Just ask and we will see what we can do!
WE DESIGN AND MAKE THEM!
Because they are lovingly designed and handmade by us, each of our various designs will be different and so will be uniquely yours!
How it’s made
Our Handmade Silver and Bronze Items are made using a substance called Metal Clay. This consists of very fine, recycled metal particles, that are mixed with an organic binder, which makes a material that looks and feels a bit like pottery clay.
When this clay is fired in a kiln, at temperatures exceeding 800 degrees Celsius, the binder burns away and the metal particles fuse together and this results a new piece of metal, in whatever shape we have sculpted or moulded it.
In order to be sold legally, any piece of Silver marketed in the UK, that is over a weight of 7.78 grams, has to be tested and Hallmarked by an official Assay Office. So we are registered with the Edinburgh Assay Office, and our heavier creations bear our personal Hallmark.
As you might know, Sterling Silver is the most commonly seen form and is 925 parts silver in 1000, the rest being cooper, which is added to give the metal more strength. Therefore, our chains, earring wires and other findings used on these pieces are sterling and purchased from UK companies.
However our own handmade elements are of a purer quality, being either .999 or .960 Silver
