Turned out just like the pictures. Very cute and stylish. It’s a Christmas present so my dog has not contributed an opinion yet. Great communication with the artist, beautifully packed, quick shipping. Very pleased.

Wonderful, responsive seller! Highly recommend. Worked with me to recreate a charm that had been lost and did a fantastic job. Shipping was super fast and item was beautifully packaged. Thank you!

Jill was so helpful and friendly and gave me a design that worked perfectly for me! I love this tag and the quality is fantastic. She made my tag promptly and shipping was fast. I really appreciated that she made sure that I was completely happy with the design before shipping.

We love this tag - so cute! Jill helped me out with specific questions and was super responsive. It turned out amazing.
'Strange Characters' applies not just to the words and the snark on a bar necklace or key chain, but to the patina the metals I use develop as they age, or the unusual shapes and color variations of the freshwater pearls I select for the bracelets and necklaces. It applies to the textures of etched or stamped and rounded metals and it applies to an individual that appreciates wearing and having something one of a kind.
Because even when I make the 'same' key chain, each one is hand cut, hand stamped and hand stained and hand finished - so no two will every be the same. And in addition to the custom listings in my store I'm always happy to accomidate special requests whenever I am able - add a second phone number to a pet tag, combine two ideas, cut a different shape. Many things are possible, all you have to do is ask!
I try to make sure that everything in the shop has character and variation, that everything is unique; but whether it is made of aluminum, copper, pearls or sterling silver - I promise that it will be well made, carefully finished and beautifully packaged. I would never send you anything that I wouldn't be pleased to gift or get myself. And if you don't agree, please contact me and I WILL make it right.
Whether it's a gift for a friend or something just for you, if you buy from me I want you to love what you bought, love how it was packaged, love the experience of opening it and how fast it arrived!

Frequently asked questions
Custom and personalized orders
I'm happy to create custom or personalized items, just send me a message.
I typically make items one at a time, but if you would like multiples of the same item (this is typically available for keychains and bracelets only), message me as I am happy to do a custom listing for you.
If you purchase a necklace and it doesn't fit, even if you specified the wrong length, just send me a message and send it back to me and I will be happy to adjust the length at no charge.
Copper and Brass is either polished or given a patina but will continue to naturally age. For polished pieces, they can be cleaned periodically to maintain the bright finish but you should expect the metal to age and the character of the piece to change over time!
Gift wrapping and packaging
All items come neatly packaged in matte black boxes with store labels. Gift wrapping is available. My current standard wrapping and paper is shown in the pictures, but I'm happy to honor special requests if there is a particular occasion or look you are going for. I will also happily include your gift message on a small folded card with any item, just send me a message.
