Clan Kennedy Badge
Clan Kennedy is a Scottish clan of the Scottish Lowlands. The Votadini were a tribe in Lothian and their chief, Cunedda, was sent by the Saxon leader, Vortigern, to establish settlements in order to resist Picto-Scottish sea raids in the south west of Scotland. These settlements spread down the west coast as far as Wales.
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.
