Dog Paw Print Rescued Necklace, Purple Goldstone Handmade Jewelry Gift

Item Description

If you are looking for the perfect piece of meaningful jewelry for a dog lover, especially a woman who has one or more rescues, then the RESCUED necklace is perfect for her!  The necklace features a two-sided lead free pewter pendant, glittering dark purple goldstone rounds, sparkling Swarovski crystals and sterling silver.  The eye catching pendant mimics a rustic wax seal design, cast from lead free pewter here in the U.S.  The front side of the pendant spotlights a raised dog paw print, while, on the opposite side, the word “Rescued” is stamped on a raised bar.  The pendant was oxidized and then polished.  The raised areas of the paw print and the “rescued” word have a beautiful old silver look especially highlighted against the darker oxidized background.  A heavy duty sterling silver jump ring securely fastens the paw print pendant to the main body of the necklace.
One either side of the paw print pendant are three mega-sparkle faceted Swarovski crystal bicones in a captivating translucent violet color called “tanzanite.”  The crystals are separated by small sterling silver beads.  Three more tanzanite crystals can be found on each side of the necklace separating groupings of the purple goldstone.  What is goldstone?  Unfortunately, goldstone is often mistaken for or misrepresented as a natural gemstone.  It is a type of glittering glass, usually coppery in color (due to copper oxides added to the glass), made in a low-oxygen reducing atmosphere.  Purple goldstone gets its glittery color from manganese oxide, the sparkles are silvery against the rich purple of the glass.  If you look closely at the photos, you can see the “sparkles”, the white dots in many of the dark purple beads.  When held in good light, the silvery sparkles look like a multitude of stars in a night sky.  The unique necklace is finished with a sterling silver toggle clasp set with a triangular shape.  Carefully designed and handmade by Catherine of Shadow Dog Designs, the RESCUED necklace was created for the woman who adores and is proud of her rescue dog(s). 
***  Please note:  when sold, one half (1/2) of the purchase price of the RESCUED necklace will be donated to an animal rescue organization to help care for the four footed souls waiting for their furever home.

Dogs have long been a symbol of loyalty, friendship and unconditional love. Pewter is believed to be very grounding, bringing the wearer back to reality.  Even though man made, goldstone (glass) and crystals (glass) carry the energies of transformation, rebirth and communication. Silver is a metal of love and healing; it is a mirror to the soul, helping us to see ourselves as others see us.


The RESCUED artisan pendant 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!
