What more could a dog love than untouched wilderness?


The Dog's Paradise Pendant is handmade in my workshop in Colorado. The design for this pendant, featuring a dog sitting in front of a river and an expanse of trees, mountains, and open night sky, was created on the computer and laser engraved into sterling silver.  The sterling silver has a brushed texture on both the front and the back of the pendant, but the edges of the pendant are polished to a shiny finish. The metal has also been painted with an antiquing patina to bring the picture to life. This pendant attaches to a 1mm durable, but dainty sterling silver cable chain through two, sterling silver jump rings. These jump rings also have a polished, shiny finish to contrast with the brushed silver. The back of the pendant is engraved with 925 (indicating sterling silver) and my maker's mark, VAD.

The pendant hangs on a 1mm, sterling silver cable chain with a sterling silver lobster clasp. You have multiple different chain length options to choose from. If you would like an option not provided, just let me know and we can make exactly what you would like.


You can customize this pendant!  The back is open for engraving. I can engrave names, initials, dates, phrases, etc.  Or I can engrave pictures, paw prints, fingerprints, or symbols.  If you can type your engraving, use the field on this page.  Remember, the longer your engraving, the smaller the text will be.  If you have something else in mind, just shoot me an email and we can discuss what you would like engraved! 


This pendant is made to order. Please allow for up to three days before the pendant is shipped so that I can make it perfectly, just for you!

Dog's Wilderness Pendant

  • Sterling silver is made up of different metals, some of which will react to chemicals found in the air.  This reaction will produce a tarnish on the surface of the metal.  High moisture levels, exposure to sunlight, and contaminates such as salt water will increase this reaction.  To protect your sterling silver jewelry, please keep it in the complimentary tarnish resistant baggie when not being worn, or keep it in any airtight bag, and store your jewelry in a cool, dry place.  To clean any tarnish that does accumulate on the surface of the jewelry, use a soft polishing cloth or silver cleaner.

    To clean any dirt or grime, gently brush the jewelry with a soft bristled toothbrush and mild dish soap.  Enjoy the design and please contact me with any problems or concerns.
