All better now!

Thanks to the help of an excellent support staff at my web host, I've recovered all the data and got The Dog Jewelry Museum back up and running! If you come across any issues, please let me know.

Good news! The Kennedy Museum of Art in Athens, Ohio is planning the following:

Collections Collected: The University Collects and Athens Collects Miniatures A Project by Mark Dion with Kennedy Museum of Art
September 24 – November 29, 2009
Opening Reception: Thursday, September 24, 6 – 9 PM

We've been invited to loan over 50 pieces to the exhibit! So the dog jewelry will be in a physical Museum in late September. Athens and the SE Ohio region is a beautiful place, especially in the fall, so if you are looking for a mini-vacation, you might consider coming out this way. See the exhibit, the leaves, and enjoy some Appalachian hospitality!

Here's a page with the pieces we've selected to go to the Kennedy Museum The curator asked for pieces that covered a range of periods (ours are from about 1900 to the present) and a wide selection of dog breeds. The Kennedy folk were really excited when we brought the bin by with our selections.

I do plan on getting back to the topic of bulldogs. Just added a WONDERFUL piece, circa 1924 carved wooden bulldog representing
Sargent Jiggs
the US Marine Corp. mascot who joined the core in 1922. Read more about this piece at the listing here.

Also just added a fantastic Mid-Century Modern copper Scottie dog by Renoir, a Trifari real look Miniature Schnauzer (the very first piece of dog jewelry I ever owned), and coming this week is an enamel cartoon dog from the show Two Stupid Dogs (an incredibly silly cartoon, that makes me laugh just thinking about it!)

As always, just go to The Dog Jewelry Museum and click on Enter the Museum.
