Dachshund

Jewelry with Personality from Rachel Pfeffer Designs

by Jamie Sanford on April 7, 2011

I really like my jewelry pieces to be interesting and sometimes quirky.  I get comments on my engagement and wedding rings quite often, because they both are not plain and my wedding ring is pretty big.  Anyway, I was excited to find Rachel Pfeffer Designs on Etsy because the jewelry in her shop totally fits my personality.

Mini camera necklace! I love to take pictures and I’ve posted camera jewelry before, so I can’t resist.

Product description:

Now you can wear a tiny Holga around your neck! This little pendant is hand formed from sterling silver wire by yours truly. The flash is a small moonstone cabochon. It is on a short 16 inch sterling silver chain but can be put on an 18 inch one. It is handmade so no two will be exactly alike!

Rachel Pfeffer’s Mini Camera Necklace is available on Etsy for $84.

Another dachshund! I’m going to end up getting one myself at some point (the dog, not the necklace – although if I have the dog, I might want the necklace even more).  Anyway.

Product description:

A cute, texty twist on the classic sterling silver hot dog pendant! He’s cast from an original hotdog that I hand pierced with a jewelers saw and then soldered three little rings to the back. I hammered HOT on the front, darkened the letters, and gave it a bright, brushed finish! He hangs on an 18 inch sterling silver chain.

The puppy is solid sterling silver, and no two look exactly the same! Lettering can be customized, just give me a message.

The Hot Dachshund necklace is available from Etsy Seller Rachel Pfeffer Designs for $72.

This ring doubles as an awesome weapon.  Be bold, indeed.  Seriously though, I love amethyst and this is a mighty big chunk to put on your hand.

Description:

You’ll be infused with boldness when you wear this ring! And how could you not? It commands you to be right there on the side.

I set a beautiful and very lightweight lavender amethyst geode set in handmade sterling silver bezel. The stone itself is amazingly flat, and the ring is incredibly comfortable. It has a double band and the stone sits flatly on your finger, overlapping the surrounding ones! (most comfortable when worn on middle finger.)

I stamped little hearts all the way around the bezel, and the words “be bold” decorate one of the sides. The bottom of the bezel was cut out of an engraved vintage sterling silver award plate, and the word “wishes” is legible on the bottom, adding a secret bit of whimsy.

The ring is currently a size 6.5, but fits more like a 7 because of the broad, flat top.

This ring is completely handmade and one of a kind, so get it before it’s gone!

This kickass “Be Bold” Amethyst Ring from Etsy Seller Rachel Pfeffer Designs is available for $124.

Thanks for coming by to visit The Daily Wishlist. If you enjoy this post, please connect with The Daily Wishlist on Facebook, follow @dailywishlist on Twitter or subscribe to the feed!

Jonathan Adler makes cute and interesting items. I’ve posted the lollipop holder before, and today will feature a number ofcute tabletop items that are all available from Pop Deluxe.

Jonathan Adler Whale Candle HolderLove this whale candle holder from Jonathan Adler.  Candle holders are rarely this interesting, and I love the idea of these on the table as little sculptures even when there aren’t candles involved.  $44.99 from Pop Deluxe.

Jonathan Adler Fish Salt and Pepper ShakersGoing along with the oceanic theme on a table, these fish salt and pepper shakers serve the same purpose – useful and interesting to look at, which is what Jonathan Adler does well. $47.99 from Pop Deluxe.

Jonathan Adler Key KeeperI know that in my house, we have random spare keys stashed in a drawer somewhere, a drawer that we have to dig through whenever we need one of said random keys.  Here comes yet another useful and visually appealing item – perfect for key storage. Available for $70 from Pop Deluxe.

Jonathan Adler Dachshund Butter DishI feel obligated to always post cute dachshund things because I know that one of my favorite guest bloggers, Kelly Kreth, has the cutest dachshund.  It’s a butter dish, which I love even more. This last Jonathan Adler item is available from Pop Deluxe for $64.99.

An entire collection of Jonathan Adler items can be shopped here on Pop Deluxe.

Dachshund Ring and Necklace in Sterling Silver

by Jamie Sanford on November 26, 2010

This post is for my friend Kelly and her dog, Mini.  Mini is a dachshund and a troublemaker.  Here’s a great photo that my husband took of Mini (the photo is a screenshot of the photo in a frame on Kelly’s wall, from Time Out New York).

Time Out New York, Kelly's Apartment 3
For anyone who isn’t familiar with the breed, here’s the Wikipedia page.  In addition, there’s a whole page on dachshunds on the AKC website.

Anyway, I immediately thought of Kelly when I saw these  items on Etsy.


These items are both from Etsy seller luckyduct.

The necklace is available for $86 and the ring is available for $74.

Photos: Dachshund Meetup in NYC.

by Jamie Sanford on May 1, 2009

Last Saturday, my husband and I met up with friend (and blogger) Kelly Kreth to attend a dachshund owner meetup in Washington Square Park in New York.  The weather was hot but nice, we had a lovely time meeting new dachshunds and spending some time with Mini, Kelly’s weiner dog.

Full set here on Flickr.
