The "Baby Kino" Pinecone necklace is a sweet and tiny charm necklace perfect for the outdoor lover. It is available in sterling silver or bronze/gold filled. It comes on a chain that is adjustable from 16"-18". Sterling pinecone = sterling silver chain. Bronze pinecone = 14k gold filled chain. These have been hand cut and are flat on the backside.


This collection was inspired by our best boy, Arluk. For those of you who don't know his story, he is a resilient and incredibly lucky dog. 


In 2018, Arluk was hit by a car in Georgia. When he was picked up by animal control, they put him in a cage for 3 days with no pain medication and scheduled his euthanasia. He had several fractures to his pelvis and spine. 


Then, an angel saw Arluk and called the Alaskan Klee Kai National Rescue, as he resembled the breed. AKKNR picked Arluk up within an hour of his scheduled euthanasia and began the process of rehabbing him. Money was raised for his extensive surgery which resulted in plates and screws to stablize his fractures. He then spent about a year with his amazing foster family while he healed.


As many of you know, the name of my business comes from my first Alaskan Klee Kai, Kiya, who is now 10. I knew I wanted another AKK but I really wanted to rescue. I had been on the list for a couple of years when I saw Arluk come into the rescue, and I immediately applied for him. We were lucky enough to be chosen for this sweet boy's forever home. He is such a goofball who loves playing with pinecones, cuddling with his dad (or anyone who will let him sit on their lap), and showing you just how much he loves you. Arluk knows that he was rescued and given a second chance at life, and he never lets you forget just how grateful he is. If you saw him running around, you would never know his past. His cute crooked tail is the only indication! We are so, so lucky to have such a unique dog with the best personality, and he deserves his very own jewelry line!


10% of each sale from this collection will be donated to the Alaskan Klee Kai National Rescue.


Gold filled is 100 layers of real gold over jewelers brass. With proper care, it will last just as long as solid gold. It is not plated so the color will never change.


These tiny pinecones are ~1/2" total length from the top of the bail to the bottom of the pinecone. The ring that hangs from the chain adds an additional 1/4" for a total of 3/4" length.
