Borzoi Russian Wolf Hound Dog Lover Jewelry Gifts

Borzoi Russian Wolf Hound Dog Breed Pin
from For Love of a Dog Jewelry and Gifts
Borzoi comes from the Russian word borzii which means swift.  These dogs are also often called Russian Wolf Hounds because they were used to hunt wolves.  An ancient dog breed, Borzoi have been common in Russia since the 13th century.  I suppose that it could be because I have family roots in Russia, or perhaps because I adore the Art Deco period...  whatever the reason, these beautiful dogs have long appealed to me.  A running Borzoi is truly a thing of beauty.

Until I have one in the flesh, so to speak, I content myself with my own dog lover jewelry in the Borzoi / Russian Wolf Hound dog breed.  My favorite of the moment is my Borzoi pin.  My own is a tri color, but I do have them in a couple of other coat colors.

Shown here is an absolutely gorgeous handcrafted tri color Borzoi (Russian Wolf Hound) dog breed pin. These handmade dog breed pins (brooches) are like no other. Entirely made by hand by an American artist. First a hand carved sculpture is created which is then used to create a mould. Cast in resin, then hand air brush painted. They are then given a protective coating of lacquer so you can enjoy this dog breed jewelry for many years. Every effort is made to adhere to AKC and UKC dog breed standards.

Frankly, these dog pins are amazing works of dog art. Notice the bone structure and musculature of the dog. I've tried to show the sculptural details in the photos of this dog breed pin. In addition to being a perfect gift for a Borzoi dog lover, this would make a fabulous jewelry gift for someone who loves the Art Deco or Art Nouvou periods of history and decor.
