It just occurred to me that I haven't introduced myself yet, so I thought I better get to it!
I'm a 30 year old American gal who moved to Australia back in July (married an Aussie boy). We have two human kids with another one on the way. We also have four ferrets and two puppies. Abby is a great dane x mastiff x ridgeback and she's 6 months old. Our 6 year old gets confused by the three breeds that make up Abby, so she introduces Abby as a "great mastiff." Jethro is a red heeler and is 5 months old.
I'm a jeweller by trade and I'm starting to explore ways to combine my love of animals and jewellery. I'm working on a new blinged out dog tag for Abby at the moment. I also have an idea for a silver pendant that has a photo-realistic etching of a client's dog on it. I'm REALLY excited about this idea, I even want one for myself! I'm still working out the details though. If anyone wants to volunteer pictures of their dogs for me to play with I'd be happy to make their pendant at cost (of materials).
I also enjoy photography, horseback riding, and dancing. Well that's me in a nutshell. I look forward to getting to know you all
