Hand Carved Pit Bull Flower Power Necklace, made in wax and cast in in sterling silver.

LENGTH: Model in photo is wearing 16" length.

PRODUCT AND PROCESS INFO: This piece is a collaboration with my dear friend and animal rescue celebrity, Sophie Gamand. I was commissioned to create a piece modeled after her beloved series, Pit Bull Flower Power.

Pit Bull Flower Power is a series aimed at rebranding shelter pit bulls, while finding these dogs homes. For this pendant, I used Frida as a model. Frida was a paralyzed pit bull Sophie helped bring from Mexico to New York. She fostered her and found her a home in Ohio, where she now thrives.

I carved Frida's adorable face out of jeweler's wax, then made a mold to cast her. After I get the casting back to my studio, I do all the finishing and oxidizing on each piece to bring out the little details of the flower crown.

CARE: Clean with included silver polishing swatch, or your choice of silver cloth. We recommend this method to to keep the raised details bright and clean yet leave the carved marks dark.

FULL DISCLOSURE: If you are concerned that this is not a project directly involving Sophie herself, please feel free to buy from her shop directly: http://www.sophiegamand.com/store or https://www.etsy.com/shop/sophiegamand

Jewelry that needs polishing comes with a polishing swatch and care info on a card. Most items that can tarnish also come with an airtight baggie and anti-tarnish swatch for storage. You can find additional care info in each item's details.

Silver jewelry can be polished with any commercial polishing cloth. I don't recommend liquid cleaners as this will remove the detail oxidation.

I am happy to create custom orders. If there is an etching or carving you would like that I believe I can add to my line, it will be similarly priced to other stock items. If it is a unique item just for you, design rates start at about $150, then go up based on how many hours of labor and revisions we need to go through, plus the final cost of materials.
I am also happy to cast your bees into resin, or use your personal snake's shedding on an ouroboros! Just shoot me a convo, and I can send you my shipping address.
All jewelry come in the box with ribbon as pictured, and if you select additional gift wrap to be added, I will put that into a nice linen pouch stamped with my logo as well. To be honest, I only added the specific gift wrap option to be included in the Etsy algorithm- all of my jewelry comes packaged gift-ready regardless!
Sizing availability is in each item's details. I can make most necklaces and rings any size you like, just shoot me a convo before ordering.
Yes I do offer wholesale! You can send me a convo with your email address and store info and I will send line sheets directly.
Yes! I would love to make something special just for the two of you. Please contact me directly.
