two doggies

Posted on November 5th, 2014 by mountain girl  |  7 Comments »



I had two custom orders for dog necklaces.  The first was for the lady whose son cut my aspen slices for me.  She likes Golden Labradors and the color blue, so I came up with this necklace for her.  The wood is edged with silver calligraphy ink, and the pendant hangs on a silver plated chain.



She loved it, and immediately ordered one for a friend who has just lost her Golden Retriever.


I created this for her.


The wood was an oval slice of aspen with an especially interesting bark edge and a couple of natural cracks.  I trimmed it in gold ink and used a gold plated chain.


These custom pieces were challenging and fun.  I liked the creative stretch of working with a new subject–dogs–and it was exciting to create something especially tailored to the recipient. 


With all the frustration that comes with being an artist, at the end of my work also comes so much satisfaction.  If I had a tail, I’d wag that thing.  🙂
