Scottie Dog Heathergem Brooch. Made from Scottish Heather, hand crafted in Scotland.

The heather is collected in the Perthshire hills and the stems are dried and shot blasted to remove the bark. They are dyed various colours using natural dyes and then the stems of different colours are mixed and compressed into a block. The block is then cut into slices and individual pieces are cut, shaped and filled before being lacquered and set into decorative metal fittings using Celtic and Scottish designs.

Dimensions: 35mm x 25mm

Heathergems are unique and no two are ever the same.
