This piece was inspired by the love between a dog and its owner. One of my dearest customers commissioned me to make an artistic piece to house her keys. In our meeting, her attention was continually drawn to her pampered sausage dog Jed. Realizing that this dog was the most important part of her life, ‘The Jed’ was born!

My vision here was to create a piece that looked like it had just been discovered after thousands of years. I wanted its elaborate appearance to indicate a fascinating secret was held within.
