(Weiner dogs) Dachshunds make me squeal with excitement.
Seeing their long bodies running down the street just makes my heart jump.
A couple years ago, I decided to channel my love for all things weiner dog into my jewellery. Enter: Nein — Dachshunds…a line of bracelets, brooches and pendants dedicated to the furry friend.
(Note: The name of this line of jewellery came from a story my aunt told me. Her three little ones saw a weiner dog waddling down the street. They, like me, squealed with excitement. “It’s a weiner dog!” they shouted. The stern dogowner stopped dead in her tracks, stared them down and shouted, “Nein! Dachshunds!” and kept walking)
You can imagine my excitement when I heard that this coming weekend, Oct. 2, Octoberdogfest is coming to the Pawsway near Harbourfront Centre! It’s a celebration of German dog breeds, including my favourite – the six different kinds of dachshunds. I will definitely have to go check that out!
The two pics I’ve posted are 1) a dachshund cuff bracelet, which I cut and formed out of sterling silver (below) and 2) a brass and ceramit (a low temp. curing enamel) brooch (above).
Enjoy! Maybe see you Saturday at Octoberdogfest! (Squeal!)
