"Shooting with Rescue Dogs!" Posted on 28 Jul 06:47

At Rosena Sammi Jewelry, we champion survivors!  This mantra led us to Animal Haven Shelter in New York City armed with a rather unusual idea.  Animal Haven is one of the leading organizations in the tri-state area finding homes for abandoned cats and dogs. Enter our concept—“Rescues Wear Rosena” — dogs in jewelry! This was a great way to bring attention to these amazing animals, promote an important message “adopt don’t shop” and see our creations on these beautiful dogs

And what happened…chaos ensued!  Keeping dogs still while trying to get the right light, angles? It was crazy! But so much fun.  I don’t think we’ve ever worked with sweeter (or hungrier) models.  Treats, toys and much coaxing on our hands and knees were all employed, but I’m sure you’ll agree the results are gorgeous.  We couldn’t be prouder.
