Dog Paw Print Necklace, Paisley Turquoise Magnesite Handmade Jewelry

Item Description

What a perfect jewelry gift for the woman who adores dogs!  The eye catching BEST FRIEND handmade necklace features an artisan copper dog paw print pendant, turquoise magnesite ovals and copper beads.  The one of a kind, slightly convex pedant was artisan made from beginning to end from pure copper   A dog paw print is raised against the background.  What makes the one of a kind pendant even more eye-catching is the unexpected paisley design in the larger metacarpal pad along with the four toe pads.  The edge of the pendant is scalloped for even more interesting texture.  To add a rustic look, the copper was given a dark patina, polished to bring out the detail and then sealed for many years of stylish fun.  The pendant has a wonderful copper glow that the photos can never truly capture.  The paw print design shows through the back of the pendant, which also has a patina.  A heavy duty copper jump ring securely fastens the pendant to the main body of the necklace.
Since the colors of turquoise and copper are made for each other, beautiful turquoise magnesite ovals were used to perfectly complement the dog paw print pendant.  Turquoise magnesite is naturally an off white gemstone with brown veining.  Since it takes a dye easily, it is often dyed, turquoise being a very popular color.   The turquoise magnesite used here is permanently dyed a gorgeous turquoise sky blue color with natural veining in various shades of brown in most pieces.    To add beautiful drape and even more copper glow, each piece of magnetite is separated by copper tube beads and small copper beads.  To securely fasten the necklace, a patinated copper toggle clasp set was used.  Carefully designed and handmade by Catherine of Shadow Dog Designs, the BEST FRIEND paw print pendant necklace was created for the woman who adores her dog(s) and adores wearing one of a kind artisan jewelry.
