This little frenchie dog ethical pendant, handcrafted with Fairtrade gold,  is a symbol of loyalty and unconditional love, something all humans require in order to thrive.

Meet Bala the French bulldog. I designed this pendant for my daughter, Paloma’s 10th birthday. Ever since she was born I have made something in gold for her to treasure and this year she was overjoyed to see her favourite little dog handcrafted into gold.

This Bala pendant is part of my Animal Amulets Collection inspired by the Native American Indians and the Ancient Egyptians both who valued the symbolism of animals and gave respect to all creatures.

Dog meaning:

The dog’s medicine is reliability, nobleness, trustworthiness, friendship, protection and service.

By choosing ethical jewellery you are giving a sustainable future to the small-scale miners who are committed to producing Fairtrade gold, which has been mined responsibly, without harm to the animal kingdom.

Bala is handcrafted in my Devon studio and comes on either a 41, 46 or 51cm medium or tiny 18ct gold trace chain. Also available on my handmade Queenie chain and
