|Patrick Files Jewelry Designs
|Sometimes we meet some really awesome folks because of dogs, Patrick is one of those folks. Patrick doesn't own an
Icelandic Sheepdog, but loves dogs and has an appreciation for Nordic art and culture resulting in his discovering the
Icelandic Sheepdog and us. Icelandic Sheepdogs here in America are very fortunate that he has befriended our breed.
Patrick has donated his custom jewelry, which is hand carved and cast using the lost wax method, to the Icetoberfest
raffle to raise money for the National Icelandic Sheepdog Rescue Alliance (NISRA).
He then custom designed a Mjolnir (Thor's Hammer) based on the Icelandic Wolf's Head hammer found at a historic
excavation, for my trip to the 139th Westminster Dog Show, changing the wolf's head bail into an Icelandic Sheepdog
head. I now always have an Icelandic Sheepdog looking up at me no matter where I go.
I am proud to own Patrick's original Icelandic Sheepdog Hammer design, but then he offered to mold it and offer them
as a fund raiser for the NISRA. A portion of each sale of Patrick's Icelandic Sheepdog Thor's Hammer goes to the breed'
Patrick's designs can be cast in Brass or Silver. You can email Patrick at the link above to chat with him about custom
hand cast jewelry designs and pricing.
