‘Clown of the sea’ and ‘sea parrot’ are just two of the nicknames that have been given to Scotland’s most recognisable seabird. Puffins are small, rounded birds that belong to the Auk family and weigh about the same as a can of Irn Bru.
The puffin stands proud on a rock in the Scottish islands with a fish. The brooch is made from three layers of marble and gloss acrylic with engraved and hand inked sections and Swarovski crystal eye detail. The little fish charm adds a tactile element. He measures 7.5 cm in height and is secured to a scroll brooch fastening.
