St. Francis Sterling Silver Dog Charm with Jade & Amber

Grant love and protection to you and your pup with this sweet charm. A St. Francis icon and pup appear on the front of each sterling silver charm and a heart is etched on the back. This charm is “strung” on a 3/4” ring along with charms of hand foraged jade and amber and is made by Laura in her workshop in Antigua, Guatemala. Why Amber and Jade? Amber is known for its protective properties and ability to release negative energy. Since amber is the “blood” or sap of prehistoric pine trees, with it comes the accumulated wisdom of the earth and its natural kingdom. It is also believed that amber attracts good luck! Like amber, jade is also a protective stone. It is said that jade blesses whatever it touches. Jade encourages you to be your true self and attracts good luck and friendship.

Each charm has been hand-made out of local silver by Laura in her Antigua, Guatemala jewelry studio. Laura has a special spot where she harvests her own jade for all the jewelry she makes and infuses with love. After casting the charms, Laura and her team sets to work mingling the stones with the sterling silver charms. With the charms and stones completed in Antigua, bracelets are finished off at Creamos in Guatemala City. Necklace chains are sterling silver and imported from Italy.
