PR: Local Jeweler Helps Bereaved Pet Owners Heal
HEAL AND HONOR THEIR PETS
PITTSBURGH, PA (PittsburghNewsWire.com) — We all know that losing a beloved pet can be gut-wrenching. We are faced with the void left in our lives by the loss of a furry (or scaly or slimy or wet) friend, and we must face the reality that our friends are gone, leaving only their memory behind.
“After our pets die, we hang onto a lot of random things,” says Jenny Butterfield, Pittsburgh-based jewelry designer and author of Over the Rainbow Bridge, “like collars or toys because these things help us remember the love and life we shared with our pets. It’s my job to take these random things and turn them into wearable works of art to fully honor those memories.”
Butterfield, who is a classically trained silversmith and goldsmith, specializes in turning sentimental and non-traditional objects into jewelry.
“People have given me all manner of interesting things,” elaborates Butterfield, “from dog fur and cremains to chew toys and blankets. I even had a client once give me puppy teeth.”
“I hate to watch people go through such a challenging situation, but it warms my heart to see their memories cherished and remembered.”
