Ellie’s Sterling Silver Pug Pendant
When I met Suzie on a chilly Melbourne Sunday afternoon I was wearing Freya’s Sausage Dog Pendant and her response was hilarious “Oh my God, you are 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 searching for a special gift for her daughter’s 30th birthday for months. An absolute dog lover Ellie has two pugs of her own at home. She spoils them with home cooked meals, special outfits for the festive season and long walks in the Canadian forest. These pups have it sweet!
I did a number of sketches and experiment before settling on a design portraying a pug’s face with it’s distinguishing features. It was a bit tricky to get it right but in the end I was really happy with how this custom job finished up.
This 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 has a 45cm long sterling silver chain with a special bone clasp.

“It was a great pleasure working with Laura on my very own custom made ring. She is gifted designer and innovative creator.”
“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 better knowing its made from reclaimed silver!”
“I met with Laura to discuss commissioning a custom made sterling silver headpiece for my wedding. Everything in the shops seems so mass produced and I wanted something truly special. Laura asked all the right questions and created exactly what I wanted. She kept me informed the whole way. The end result was so beautiful, more than I could have ever imagined!”
