Dog Lover Paw Print Heart Necklace, Turquoise Amber Handmade Jewelry

Item Description

What a perfect jewelry gift for the woman who adores her dog(s)!  The one of a kind ALWAYS FAITHFUL handmade necklace features an artisan gold bronze paw print on heart pendant, soft faceted African turquoise gemstones, honey amber gemstones and copper.  The glowing pendant was artisan designed and cast from gold bronze (bronze with the addition of copper powder to produce a gold sheen).  The somewhat rustic-style pendant is heart shaped and high shine.  A gorgeous paw print is found in the middle of the heart, raised against the background for eye-catching texture.  The back of the pendant is fairly smooth but has some swirling texture to it.  Two heavy duty copper jump rings securely fasten the pedant to the main body of the necklace.  
To perfectly highlight the dog paw print and heat pendant, soft faceted African turquoise and small amber nuggets were used.  African turquoise is actually a type of spotted jasper, normally shades of turquoise with black matrix (and is sometimes passed off as real turquoise).  The African turquoise used in the necklace is absolutely gorgeous with its coloring and black matix, each stone different.  The colors range from a pale turquoise to a dark turquoise, some with hints of green, some with amber, a few almost totally black.  For a subtle sparkle, the African turquoise is soft faceted.  Between each grouping of African turquoise is a group of 3 small amber nuggets in a rich, glowing honey color.  Small copper beads separate the amber from the African turquoise.  A copper hook clasp set securely fastens the necklace when worn.  Carefully designed and handmade by Catherine of Shadow Dog Designs, the ALWAYS FAITHFUL dog paw print and heart necklace was created for the dog lover who also adores wearing one of a kind artisan jewelry celebrating dogs!

Dogs are a symbol of  loyalty, friendship and unconditional love.  Bronze, an alloy metal, is said to bring great calmness and deep meaningful thoughts, leading to a far greater insight into life’s problems. African Turquoise (a jasper) is believed to help bring about positive life transformations to the wearer.  Amber is used as a good luck and protective stone; it is said to bring romantic love, wisdom, energy and balance.  Copper is used to help the wearer recognize barriers in the path of personal development. 


The ALWAYS FAITHFUL artisan necklace was carefully designed and handmade in a dog friendly, smoke free studio.  The necklace will come with two informational drop tags: one with the piece's name; the other lists the materials used in the necklace and the language of the stones and metals. It will be carefully packed in an organza jewelry bag, perfect for gift giving to a loved one . . . or to yourself!
