Pele's Dog measures 2-3/16" long and made out of solid sterling silver
The stone is a 3mm carnelian
Has a good, solid weight and "feel"

Years ago I did a brooch series that I called "the monsters from under the bed". Recently I thought it was time to bring them back in a new form. My dog Sadie is a Belgian Tervuran, a dog bred for herding sheep. She is a very exuberant, joyful and sweet creature who loves to run. Her ability to accelerate to a high speed from standing still is very impressive even at 14 years old and stone deaf. Sadie's form was my inspiration, but in trying to capture that essence, the dog evolved into a firey creature with flames like those in Tibetan art. Then she became Pele's Dog, the shape shifting Goddess of the volcano on Hawaii. There are many stories about Pele's dog in the Hawaiian tradition. One of them is that she would appear to warn those who might be in the path of an impending lava flow.
