Inspired by classic tattoo designs and the ink that adorned sailors in the past, this tough-but-tender pendant necklace adds an accent of vintage cool to any look. The swallow symbolises a safe return, as a sighting of the bird meant that land was close by, and the small, intricately carved piece makes a great gift for all ages. Choose from gold- or silver-plated. Handmade in Kent.
