This charming heart charm is from Eileen Gatt’s Be Charmed collection and features a beautiful handcrafted heart.
Eileen is inspired by traditional Scottish folklore and customs. The ‘Luckenbooth’ heart is well renowned in Scottish history, the name was derived from a pawn shop on Edinburgh’s Royal Mile where lucky trinkets were bought and sold. The heart was a traditional Scottish love token, often pinned to babies clothing to protect them from harm.
The charm is made from sterling silver and is approx 14x8mm.
Chain not included.
After graduating from the Royal College of Art in London, Eileen returned home to the Scottish Highlands to set up her own Jewellery & Silversmithing business in the Black Isle. This location provides her with the perfect environment in which to work as she is inspired by the mystical interaction between man and the sea. Eileen is fascinated by ancient stories and customs and this is what inspires her when she is designing her jewellery and silverware.
