This Client wanted a pendant, so that she could keep her ‘best-four-legged-friend’ close to her always. She provided this picture.
My friend (and fantastic jeweller) Zsolt at http://zsoltszekely.com/ turned a small piece of wax into a dome-shape on his lathe. I then scaled the paw image down, and carved this specific pooches paw into the wax, and gave it, what I think, is a very nice leathery sort of texture.
The wax was cast in 10K yellow gold, a bail was soldered on and the pendant was placed on a chain. The customer, and loving dog owner was thrilled with her new pendant.
