Prepping for the UN

The DachshundUN  is coming to Harbourfront Centre on February 28 – March 3 – less than a month away! I feel like I already can’t contain myself!

Yesterday I saw a long haired wiener walking near work and my heart started to race  and I let out a squeal! In just 24 days Harbourfront will be a bustle with over 200 dachshunds!  200!  That is crazy! (If I squeal at the site of one doxie just imagine the excitement that will be bursting from me when I see 200!)

Preparation for the DachshundUN marketplace is in full force. Castings are back from the casting house and now its a matter of turning them into wearable objects! We will be busy making friendship bracelets, charm bracelets, rings and pendants for the next few weeks.

S’wag will be selling our jewellery and greeting cards at all 4 performances. If you wish to pre-order jewellery for pick up at the show you can use promo code PICKUPUN when checking out of our Etsy shop. Pre-ordering will ensure that we have the piece you want available at the shows.

Hope to see you and your wieners there!

Ask Me Where My Wiener’s Been…

I have to say that one of the things I like best about my job is when I open up my e-mail to find a new order and the exciting moment that follows when I get to see where in the world I will be sending my jewellery!

I recently bought a map and started to mark on the map where I have sent my doxie jewellery! I brought the map with me to Wienerfest and it was a real conversation starter. I was told by previous customers places they had sent my jewellery or places they intended to send it. I even had a woman tell me she was going to send my business card to the breeder where she got her dog back in Germany!

So here is my list of places I have sent S’wag so far. If you have purchased a piece and sent it somewhere (or you live somewhere) that is not on our list we would love to hear about it! I think S’wag has travelled more places then I have! I can’t wait to see where S’wag will travel to next!

Have you got S’Wag?

What’s in a name?

If you’ve been wondering what the S’Wag in S’Wag Jewellery is all about, well here’s your answer. There’s a few reasons were called S’Wag!

When someone’s got “swagger” they’ve got a confident spring in their step. Like, say the strut you’ve got when walking your pup, or that pup’s four-legged strut itself!

And then, of course, there’s s.w.a.g. – stuff.we.all.get. – a common phrase heard referring to those blingy gift bag giveaways that everyone wishes they could get their hands on at awards shows!

Of course, all of our jewellery is doggy inspired.  And what happens when a dog is excited? (Let’s say, when they see their human wearing a fabulous piece of jewellery in homage to their cute little self!) Tail wag!

And next there’s the S: Sarah Ana Designs – the founder and designer of S’Wag.

So, put it all together and what do you get…?

S’Wag. Accessories to get tails waggin’.

Picasso and Lump

Probably one of the most famous or recognizable Dachshunds in the art world was Picasso’s doxie Lump (pronounced loomp – meaning rascal).

Lump was said to be the inspiration for some of Picasso’s artwork, most famously his print The Dog.

Searching the web I found hundreds of pics of Picasso and his muse. I also found an interesting blog that tells the story of Picasso and Lump. Check out the blog here! There are lots of great photos of Picasso and Lump. He was quite the poser!

And if the story really interests you and piques your curiousity (as it did me) there is actually a book written about Picasso and his pooch. Picasso and Lump : A Dachshund’s Odyssey is available at Chapters/Indigo. I’m going to have to check it out!
