Here is an outstanding Sterling silver pendant made by the renowned Orkney silversmith, Ola Gorie (see bio). The design of this large pendant is taken from an 8th century Pictish stone found during excavations in the Brough of Birsay. It features a number of enigmatic Pictish symbols, including this so-called Crescent and V-rod. The Picts were the indigenous people of iron-age Scotland, called thus by the Romans because they decorated their bodies. They left no written records, only the picture stones which abound in Northern Scotland. The pendant is supplied with a nice silver chain.
