" The Teckel Family" Set - Made to order

In August I received these special order form some old acquaintances. Three jewelry pieces that must have teckels as main characters. After some documentation from my part and some talks about the designs, we agreed for a necklace, a brooch and a bookmark. The necklace and brooch for some lady teckel owners and the bookmark for a gentleman with the same love for these breed of dogs. And I mean real love because the family that received these gifts have teckels with pedigree and they attend  special dog contests. An they live in Italy :D
I may say that was a pretty difficult but real fun order! And I found a real help again in my husband hands :))

I made a necklace with a teckel shaped pendant and a byzantine chain.

Materials: stainless steel wire for the frame of the pendant; copper wire for the filling; blue and peacock sand beads; handmade non tarnish copper rings; copper spring clasp.
Weave: byzantine
Inner diameter of the rings: 3 mm
Techniques: wire wrapping and chainmaille.

The brooch in very simple, with little sand beads details.

Materials: stainless steel wire for the frame; non tarnish silver plated wire; blue and transparent sand beads.
Technique: wire wrapping.

And the bookmark. I kept it very simple, so it may fit as a gift for a men.

Materials: stainless steel wire for the frame; handmade anodized aluminium rings; wood bead; hemp string.
