Do you remember your first ever pet dog?
When my sister, brother and I were kids we were always dressing our dogs up in various costumes, from hats and sunglasses to capes, t-shirts and even my little brother's Y-fronts (which gave us no end of laughs).
Stretch, Pap and LeRoy put up with it with grace and good humour so this is an ode to the dogs we had as kids, who we loved unreservedly and whose spirits inhabit the temples in our hearts.
This dog is wearing a bobble hat and is handmade from 18ct gold and highly polished, as well as oxidised, sterling silver. The chain is 24 inches and can be worn long or short because the bolt-ring catch goes into any part of the chain — which is great because it then works with lots of different necklines and outfits and is really comfortable to wear.
Saba Jewellery proudly supports compassion and I am very happy to say that I am now involved in a new partnership with a wonderful charity called Animals Asia.
I design and handcraft everything with the intention that it becomes an heirloom: something that you want to hold onto long into old age and pass down to someone else.
Temple of Dog Pendant is 4 x 3cms, the chain is 18 inches
