This is a favorite! People always want to know the story of this piece...are the dogs on an adventure or a misadventure...is the Basset howling out of pure joy or out of misfortune...is the Scottie seeing land at long last or the flashing glint of a fish just below the surface...and the steadfast Lab...is she the glue that holds this trio together??
This piece of jewelry has the recipe of a mythology of sorts. A boat as a vessel...a threesome as willing or reluctant participants...even a symbol of infinity on the outboard...add an appropriate title and a dose of imagination and the story stirs with life.
Journey is photo-etched sterling silver and is 4 inches wide by 2.25 inches tall on a snake chain. The propeller turns!
