This Cathedral tie tack is based on one of three circular sandstone carvings in Orkney’s St Magnus Cathedral. This bold design features four curved shapes separated with small teardrops, forming a subtle cross pattern. The surface of the tie tack has a polished silver finish with the edges of the design highlighted in oxidised silver. The tie tack is approximately 12mm wide.
Sheila based her Cathedral collection on three beautiful carvings found on the east wall of St Magnus Cathedral in Orkney. Carved into the red sandstone, these date to around the 13th century and may once have been associated with altars dedicated to St Margaret, St Catherine and St Barbara.
