Clan Cochran Badge
Clan Cochrane is a Lowland Scottish clan.
Traditionally the original ancestor of the Clan Cochran(e) in Scotland was a Scandinavian Viking who settled in what is now known as Renfrewshire, between the eighth and tenth centuries. It is evident that the name is of territorial origin and that the Cochranes took the name of the lands in the ancient Barony of Cochrane.
Each item begins as a piece of bronze sheet metal. After a pattern is transferred to the metal, the piece is etched in a salt-water solution. Each piece is hand cut, sanded, and polished. The pin back is soldered on. A patina has been applied giving the metal that aged look. A clear polymer coating is applied to the face of the badge.
