This dachshund is made from 100% reclaimed/recycled sterling silver. The surface has been blackened with a natural sulfur oxide, giving it a darker finish, while the eyes, nose and tail are polished, allowing a special glimmer.
This pendant comes with a 45cm long sterling silver chain and custom made ‘bone clasp’ that was design by Coral Covey.
It also come gift packaged and with special care instructions. Note – every dachshund is handmade – no two are exactly identical.
This piece was originally made for Freya. As a dog lover, she often imagined a pet of her own, however with full time work, living in a city and often travelling, she never thought she would find the time to care for her own four-legged friend.
One winter whilst visiting a friend in Munich, Freya met a little sausage dog named ‘Guti’ and it was love at first sight! She and Guti were like old souls who had finally been reunited after a lifetime apart. They enjoyed long walks along Munich’s stunning river, followed by snuggles on the couch. Five days later, it was time for Freya to return home to Scotland, and they begrudgingly parted ways.
Upon returning home, Guti was still fresh in her mind and there was a void in her life. She realised she had to add a ‘sausage’ to her own life. Freya moved to the countryside and adjusted her lifestyle to accommodate a tiny, black, satin coated dog named ‘Otto’. Soon after, a light brown pup named ‘Ivy’ joined their clan and the three of them started their Scottish adventure. In a wee cottage tucked up behind the rolling hills of Dundee, you will find all three undoubtedly cosy in front of a warm open fire.
Please allow 3 working days for Laura to make your piece by hand and bring it to the post.

” 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.”
“I am so delighted with the ring Laura designed and made for me. It exceeded my already high expectations! It was great to work with such a thoughtful professional who uses environmentally friendly materials and practices”
“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!”
