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This piece was originally made for Freya.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 have commissioned Laura to design and create several pieces for me and my expectations have been exceeded every time. Her passion for both the origins of materials and commitment to telling a story is in itself shear artistry.”
“My favourite thing about Laura’s creations are that each piece is different. They are all uniquely designed and made by hand, so no two are the same”
“Laura was attentive and really listened to what I wanted. She is very friendly and easy to deal with, communicating through the process with sketches, test models and the finer details. I would highly recommend Laura for any jewellery with a personal touch. It makes it all the better knowing its made from reclaimed silver!”
