In Wellington since 1946
Welcome to McPhee's
Pewter and heathergem brooch / lapel pin / tie pin imported from Scotland with real Scottish heather inset.
Heathergems are handcrafted from natural heather. The heather is collected, cut, cleaned and dyed and compressed in a press. The resulting block of coloured compressed heather stems is turned with a rod to make shaped pieces. The small pieces are then sanded and lacqered to give a vibrant colour and shine.
A really beautiful product which is hard to describe, similar to an opal or marble, but not really.
No pieces are the same and we receive all sorts of colour combinations, from reds and greens to purples and browns. When we order any jewellery we get sent whatever is next in line so it could be any colour.
Presentation box and information card supplied.
Heathergem measures approx 1/2 " (1.5cm) diamter and finished pin is approx 2" (5cm) tall.
