Greyhound Necklace

Greyhound Necklace

The Greyhound Totem.

The very first Greyhound Necklace of this design was created for a dear friend who has rescued racing dogs and brought them to a happy life as Royal Hounds at Renaissance Fairs in Michigan. The reference material for the Greyhound necklace was carefully chosen to express the majesty and beauty that Greyhounds posses. The Greyhound necklace is hand cut (pierced) from your choice of metal and hangs from a 30" adjustable leather cord.

The Greyhound is the second fastest accelerating land mammal surpassed only by the cheetah. The Celts revered Greyhounds for their speed, skill, grace in the hunt, and loyalty. In medieval heraldry the Greyhound is said to denote majesty, courage, vigilance, swiftness and loyalty, and they were emblematic of nobility.

Each Greyhound pendant is individually hand cut, please allow for variation in individual pieces.

After being cut and polished the copper, nickel, and brass pendants are coated in bees wax to protect their finish. As they age they will gain a natural patina that is individual to the piece and how it is worn.

Cleaning: Pendants can be cleaned with a soft polishing cloth. If needed the leather cord can be removed and the pendants washed with a mild non-abrasive soap and water.

Please allow 2-4 weeks for delivery depending upon availability of this design.
