May I introduce you to my little “Wolf Pack”? We’ve had quite a few requests for Wolf Rings at Walker Goldsmiths lately and I think they look very elegant together as a “Pack”! I like dogs generally, so to carve a Wolf was a fun adventure for me. Wolves are the largest members of the dog family. I’ve never personally had a wolf as a pet but there are those that do and they have Wolf as their personal totem. There are so many tales, stories, facts and fables throughout history of the Wolf and these legendary stories come from all over the world.
Wolves are legendary because of their beautiful singing howl, which they use to communicate. A lone wolf howls to attract the attention of his pack, while communal howls may send territorial messages from one pack to another. Though they almost never attack humans, wolves are considered one of the animal world’s most fearsome natural hunters. They are friendly, social and highly intelligent. Wolves live and hunt in packs of around six to ten animals. They are known to roam large distances, perhaps 12 miles (20 kilometers) in a single day. Wolf packs are established according to a strict hierarchy, with a dominant male at the top and his mate not far behind. Usually this Alpha male and female are the only animals of the pack to breed. The sense of family is strong with wolves. All of a pack’s adults help to care for young pups by bringing them food and watching them while others hunt. Owen and I had a fun conversation this morning about his memories of wolves in Alaska that he tells in his Wolf Bracelet blog.
My little Wolf Rings are actually very large rings. These are Sterling Silver, very 3 dimensional carvings, and well balanced for comfortable wearing. They are 14mm wide and 9mm high at the top, tapering down to a 5mm shank bottom. We can make them from a size 7 at $175 and $195 at size 14 and up. Just shoot Walker Goldsmiths a message and we’ll make you one if you’re feeling like the true spirit of the free wilderness!
