King of the Garden Necklace
- In stock
This dog pendant is cut by hand from sheet sterling silver, and this design depicts our first family dog, Stretch, that we got in 1976.
He was half Basset Hound and half Black Labrador and my three year old brother wanted to call him Christmas tree. He was very clever and very cunning. The blue tit is made from copper and enamel. The chain is about 18 inches in length and is also sterling silver.
Approximate Size: Stretch is about 2 inches wide from tip of tail to ear and the blue tit is about 1 inch long.
All enamels will vary slightly in colour so the one you purchase may look slightly different to the image here...each one is therefore unique.
Enamels are delicate! Do not bend: copper has some 'give', but enamel does not, its made from glass!
