Pipistrelle Bat Pendant

£290.00

The pipistrelle is the most common species of bat in the British Isles – the one you will most likely have seen fluttering around your head as dusk falls. This model is cast in sterling silver and is hallmarked.

There are two designs to choose from: the Pipistrelle Bat Pendant, which hangs from his feet and has a removable chain, and the necklace version, which hangs from the hooks on its wings and faces upwards (fixed chain).

Inspiration for my Pipistrelle Bat Pendant

I have always wanted to model a bat. But it wasn’t until we found one hanging from the rafters in our house, shortly followed by a customer asking if I would make her one, that I finally realised the time was right. This piece was made as part of a commemorative display to mark a long and happy marriage, surrounded by nature’s marvels.

A lady approached me about the piece only weeks after I discovered a long-eared brown bat roosting in our upstairs corridor. I waited until dusk to release it, as I had been advised by the Bat Conservation Trust. I then had the truly magical experience of watching it fly, silently, around the bedroom, before it discovered the open window and disappeared into the night.

My Pipistrelle Bat Pendant or Necklace would be, ideally, paired with one of their favourite foods … the fly earrings!

I do still have a bat on my To Do list. The one that set up home in my upstairs corridor was a brown long-eared bat. Did you know that, when they sleep, they curl their ears up? He was absolutely adorable. I waited until dusk to release it, as I had been advised by the Bat Conservation Trust. I then had the truly magical experience of watching it fly, silently, around the bedroom, before it discovered the open window and disappeared into the night.
