Baffin, the sterling silver magical whale pendant
Whales are so magical to me. During a recent holiday in Cornwall, whilst I didn't see an actual live whale of course, I visited many art galleries that had abundant whale images - I then visited gorgeous town of Charleston and saw the tall ships docked there which made me think of old scrimshaw art of whales and sails and sailors - Baffin formed in my head there and then. I got home, drew him and knew I wanted to create him in silver.
Here he is! I think I love him!
The Vietnamese regard whales as sacred creatures who bring luck, safety and prosperity.
I do too :)
Baffin is made entirely of sterling silver, hand cut from sterling silver sheet, his fin is added as a separate layer of silver - he's then adorned with stars, and flanked by two too!
He hangs on a sterling silver chain, length of your choice (the one pictured is 18")
Your Baffin will be made just for you, so he may have some very slight differences to the Baffin pictured - this will make yours unique to you only.
He will be hallmarked at the London Assay Office (the whole process from making to getting him back from hallmarking will be approximately 2 weeks, I will then post immediately to you).
He will come to you gift boxed, ready to give or keep just for yourself.
From nose to tip of tail 5cm
Widest point: 3cm
Size of flanking stars: 1cm.
