I remember the day I designed my pet paw pendant. It was one of several prototypes that I had been experimenting with and it took me quite a while to work out which one of them had the look I was going for. It's not always clear cut which of the designs will cast well, and I'm always on pins and needles until I get the initial casting from my gold or silversmith.
The day the package arrived from New England that contained my first pet paw pendants was a very happy one indeed! I found them beautiful and they have, in fact, been one of my most beloved designs, according to my customer's comments. I think all the time and effort that went into the creation of the final piece was more than worth it.
But the first time I had one cast in 14k gold was a happy time indeed. I think it is even more beautiful in the gold than in the silver! There is just something about the way the light plays on the surface of the design that I find most entrancing.
This gold pet paw pendant would surely make an elegant gift for your favorite animal lover! Just wrap it up with confidence and look forward to that happy holiday or birthday when it can be unveiled.
