Based on a unique Anglo Saxon dog headed dress pin in the British museum. The Head is sculpted from wax and then cast, with the pin being soldered into place afterwards and then heavily hand finished with files and polishing tools with a dark patina (But I can make it shiny and white if you want)
The eyes of the pictured piece are set with amethyst although the original is glass, I'm happy to source different stones for you if you want, just give me a message and we can discuss this!
I'm happy to discuss making this in different materials such as gold, just message me to discuss price as the price of gold fluctuates regularly.
Due to hallmarking laws in the UK this piece will require hallmarking which we always do at Edinburgh assay office. This takes time and there is a minimum order charge from the assay office so we usually send these in batches once every week or fortnight, hence why we have a long wait time. If the order is urgent please let us know and we will see what we can do to get it to you quicker.
