hand holding swivel dog clip - figural hand jewelry
Need a hand? Here's a fabulous figural left hand holding a swivel fob dog clip necklace pendant. Fun and whimsical jewelry.
The swivel fob dog clip can hold one to three wax seal charms and opens by pushing the pivot near the base/swivel part of the charm.
The necklace chain threads through the top of the hand, and the chain shown fits easily through the tiny hole at the top but if you don't order with this chain, I would recommend a chain with a loop size smaller than 2mm.

- symbolism -
Hands were popular symbols in sentimental Victorian jewelry, often symbolic of loyalty, strength, romance and fidelity.
The swivel fob dog clip is reminiscent of the Georgian and Victorian Eras when both ladies and gentlemen would clasp their fobs, watches, charms and wax seals to a fob swivel that was attached to a short chain attached to a vest or waist coat, the swivel used to keep the chain from twisting so it would lie flat.
