On June 2, I will be exhibiting my jewelry at an event called Pawsapalooza, sponsored by PAWS/LA. I have been involved with PAWS/LA (stands for Pets are Wonderful Support) in one way or another since 2001. Their mission is to help clients (which include people with life-threatening illnesses and the elderly) keep their pets when it may no longer be feasible for health or financial reasons.
Though my jewelry isn’t generally dog related, I have created some pieces for this event which celebrate “Dog Love.” The necklace pictured below is an example–it features a sterling plate at the clasp that reads “Dog is Good.”
This necklace features peach rutilated quartz, peridot, and appatite stones and sterling silver components.
I am suddenly very excited about this part of my line as I have long wanted to create jewelry that was not overtly dog related but gave a subtle nod to the dog lover in all of us. I think this does it beautifully.
