We named this piece for Oronsay Island, Oronsay means 'tidal island' in Norse. The island is only accessible during low tide. It is home to the ruins of a medieval priory built about 1380, Norse ship burial sites and is a Special Protection Area for several species of birds and the only native species of honeybee in Britain.
The Oronsay features knotwork along the finials (ends) and finish with a smooth tightly curled end bringing to mind waves. It measures 1 3/4 inches wide and 1 7/8 inches long.
