The star of the one of a kind FAITHFUL necklace is the lead free pewter dog pendant.  It has a wonderfully rustic look to it since it was patterned after wax seal stamps that were once used to secure letters and documents.  The pendant is two-sided. The front features a raised dog design with the word “faithful” above it. The backside has the word FAITHFUL on a raised sign.  For a vintage feel, the charms were coated with a dark patina and then polished, leaving the raised areas shiny to bring out the lovely detail. The dog pendant is connected to the main body of the necklace with a heavy duty, sterling silver jump ring.
 
To highlight the dog pendant, bright red coral nuggets and earthy colored Picasso jasper gemstones was used.  Three pieces of red coral were used on each side of where the pendant connects and is then placed in groups of two with a jasper round separating them.  The color of the Picasso jasper rounds range in shades of brown, from a light tan to darker browns, some with hints of gray. Some stones are part light in color and part dark, some with darker lines of matric running through them.  Separating the red coral from the jasper are small, glowing sterling silver beads.
 
The meaningful FAITHFUL necklace is finished with a small toggle clasp set.  The loop has five lines etched into the top and the bar is flared at the end.
 

Dogs are a symbol of  loyalty, friendship and unconditional love.  Pewter is believed to be very grounding, bringing the wearer back to reality.  Red Coral is used to help calm life, to restore harmony in the event of an emotional conflict.  Picasso Jasper is used as a calming stone and assists in the development of creativity. 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 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!
