Scottish slang word jewellery is now on sale at the McManus Galleries. The colourful pieces were voted for by the people of Dundee and have been designed by Bonnie Bling, an award winning Scottish jeweller. The words were sourced in a Facebook and Twitter campaign that took place earlier this year. Locals were asked for their charming lingo, cheeky patter and unique buzzwords. The 5 words that came out on top were Dinghies, Glaikit, Teckle, Fairdeegowk and Oary. Daniel Gray, Retail Co-ordinator at The McManus: Dundee’s Art Gallery and Museum said: “We wanted to know which words roll off people’s tongues on a daily basis in Dundee.
