Note from shop owner Hello, I'm travelling for my 'day job' and then hard at work on a fundraiser for the rescue group I volunteer with so the shop is closed until 6/24. (Wish us luck raising lots of money for our medical fund and check out out silent auction here: https://bidr.co/events/bigboss

I'll still be checking email as I can, so if you have any issues with an order you placed or any questions about an item or delivery time frame for a custom order, please email me at 5tr4n9echaracters [!at] gmail.com.

Thanks!

I bought a tag for my puppy 3 months ago and it still looks very beautiful! i chose a copper finish and it has aged beautifully !! Jill's work is incredible ! She began to work on the tag the same night i placed the order. She made sure i loved the design as i was too picky about the customization and she wudnt stop until i was absolutely satisfied! She shipped it at 2am and it reached me very quickly! Also love the fact that her proceeds go towards animal rescue ! I wish Jill good luck and looking forward to order more cute things from strangecharacters

About

Strange Characters?

'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.

Sizing details

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.

Care instructions

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.
