Winterchild Silver Jewelry - Symbolic, meaningful sterling silver jewellery from Canada's North.

Favourite Pets - Symbol Selection

Our original symbols of favourite pets are available on all of our handcrafted sterling silver, copper, pewter or gold jewellery (necklaces, earrings, and bracelets). Esther Winter, jewellery designer draws each original Winterchild symbol by hand. The symbol is then forged into a hardened steel stamp. Next, the stamp is hammered into the sterling silver, copper, pewter or gold to create an imprint. Final touches include curving the piece and polishing. Handcrafted in the Yukon, Canada.

Cat Paw Print Silver Jewellery

Cat Paw Print

This symbol was created as a tribute to our feline friends. Cats are prime examples of independence and personality. I love that they always land on their feet and how they have perfected the art of lounging about and demanding all the love and attention they need!!!

Dog Paw Print Silver Jewellery

Dog Paw Print

Oh, how we love our dogs... their antics bring us smiles every-day! Who could ask for a better friend? Our dogs love and adore us and are as loyal a friend as we will ever know.

Horse Symbol on Handcrafted Silver Jewelry


As the daughter of a rancher I started riding horses very young and recall proudly getting to skip kindergarten classes in order to help round up our cattle from the high range. My fondest childhood memories of my father are of these days.

Husky Racing Symbol on Sterling Silver Jewelry

Husky Racing

Every winter, Yukoners avidly follow the progress of the dog teams participating in our world famous Yukon Quest. In the Yukon's past, however, the people of the north befriended the husky and relied heavily on it for survival. This image shows the oldest of friendships, the one between humans and dogs.
