Puffins! These gravity defying, colourful little beauties have been a love of mine for many years. we have seen them as a family in Iceland, and did you know we have Puffins here in Wales? On a little island called Skomer off the Pembrokeshire coast! They appear around April and stay all Summer, and you can take boat trips to the island to visit them!
inspired by this, I have created a tiny miniature bird to be transformed into a silver treasure to wear as a necklace, Bangle or an individual charm to add to your own bangle. The original model I carved in wax using simple hand tools, then sent it to an independent casting company to transform it into solid Sterling Silver, to preserve all the detail. They then come back to me for finishing and to have the bale added to become a little wearable treasure.
Last year I released a preorder of numbered puffins which sold out, and numbers will be limited again, however this time I will be donating to the Wildlife Trust of South and West Wales for every Puffin sold, to help them to continue their work to conserve and educate about these gorgeous creatures on the Island of Skomer.
Your puffin will be carefully giftwrapped and boxed ready for you.
Bangle sizes are as follows and refer to the diameter (the widest part of the bangle measured across the middle)
