The Celts revered hunting dogs. In Celtic mythology the hunt is a means by which animals move between the mortal world and the realm of magic and gods. Hounds were considered guardians who guided the souls of the dead to the Otherworld. Dogs are representative of protection and loyalty.

Hand etched stainless steel pendant hangs on an adjustable waxed cotton cord with sliding knots so you can adjust it to suit your neckline from choker to full length. The electro etching process sometimes creates a pebbled texture which resembles ancient artifacts recovered from the earth. But unlike most metals Stainless Steel will NOT tarnish, corrode, rust, or turn your skin green. It is the most durable metal.
JEWELLERY CARE- Long Term Exposure to moisture (showering, swimming) will remove the black patina and the wax coating on the adjustable cord, so it's best to take off jewellery before engaging in these activities.

☀Photo 1 is representative of the pendant you will receive. Please allow for slight variation in etching on each handcrafted piece.
☀☀A card with the description of the symbol is included with purchase..

ECO-FRIENDLY ETCHING
Our steel has been etched with an eco-friendly process which does not use any acid or other toxic chemicals. Salt water will naturally etch stainless steel over a long time, we have sped up the process by using a few volts of electricity. No toxic fumes, hydrogen and oxygen are released into the air. Galvanic or electrolytic etching was originally developed by printmakers in the mid 1800's as a non-toxic process for etching their printing plates.

JEWELLERY CONSTRUCTION
Each jewellery piece is HAND MADE by us from beginning to end. We apply a resist on a sheet of stainless steel, electro etch, saw by hand, file, and polish. A black patina is applied to the recessed areas to enhance the pattern. Many pieces are curved using a hammer and block. The electro etching process can create a pebbled texture, which we feel only imparts the hand crafted quality of our work.
