Snug as a Pug
I caught up with Suzie on a chilly Melbourne afternoon, wearing Freya’s Sausage Dog Pendant.
“Oh my, you’re wearing a sausage around your neck! I love it! Do you think you could make a pug?”
“I’m sure I can,” I responded.
Suzie had been trying to think of the perfect special gift for her daughter’s birthday for months. A total dog lover, Ellie has two pugs at home. They are well-loved, spoiled with home cooked meals, have an enviable wardrobe of special outfits for all occasions, and are treated to long walks in the Canadian forest. What more could a pup want?
After numerous sketches and experiments, I settled on a design that featured a pug’s face with it’s uniquely distinguishable features. It took time to get the features just right, but in the end, I was incredibly happy with the final piece.
This gorgeous pug is made from 100% reclaimed/recycled sterling silver. The surface has been blackened with a natural sulphur oxide, giving it a darker finish, while the higher points of the face are polished allowing a special glimmer. The pendant is complemented by a 45cm sterling silver chain that features a special bone clasp; the perfect finishing touch!

“It was a great pleasure working with Laura on my very own custom made ring. She is gifted designer and innovative creator.”
“My partner and I engaged Laura with the task of commissioning a unique piece of jewellery. Laura was loosely briefed by my partner and totally took the concept and ran with it. Communication was forthcoming with frequent updates along the way, including illustrations and photos of concepts. The final product blew all involved away! Couldn’t recommend Coral Covey any more thoroughly!”
” I love and admire that sustainability and the environment are quintessential parts of the ethos at Coral Covey. I have purchased several pieces from Laura for myself and as gifts and I love the classic, elegant and fun designs. Laura is a consummate professional and skilled designer and jeweller.”
