Pet bling with peace of mind.

The handmade evolution started for me at an early age. As a child, one of my earliest crafting memories was building a row boat with my father. There was just something so magical about taking, what appeared to me as, a large pile of wood and turning it into a beautiful row boat. When I wasn't crafting with my father, I was in the kitchen with my mother. As a professional chef, she showed me how different foods could be combined into a veritable work of edible art. I credit both my parents with giving me the ability to create handmade goods with my own two hands.

I strive to create quality handmade products for my customers. Inspired by the love I have for my menagerie of pets, Island Top Custom Tags allows me to share that love with pets from all over the world. Nestled beneath the lush trees of North Carolina, sits my home studio where I spend the greater part of the day crafting original hand stamped pet ID tags. Each pet is special and I believe that every pet ID tag that I make represents a token of affection from an owner to his fur baby. I also specialize in personalized hand stamped pendants for humans to celebrate any occasion.

Whether you have a dog who acts more human than most people you know or a cat that behaves like a diva, Island Top Custom Tags can create a custom hand stamped pet ID tag that will accentuate your pet's personality while keeping him safe. At Island Top Custom Tags, I hand stamp the contact information for the owner on every tag that I sell. So enjoy a little bling with your peace of mind!

    I love making pet tags out of mixed metals. I work out of my home studio in Lake Lure, NC . It is wonderful to be able to go to work with my husband Craig and pet family.

  • Ruby


    We've had Ruby for almost 40 years. You never know where she'll will be. When we are there working she has free run and likes hanging out under our work benches.

  • Craig


    Hubby Craig does all the metal cutting of the designs. Cutting the designs is a tedious job and requires a lot patience, which he has a lot of.

    Gone But Never Forgotten.

    In loving memory, when we started making tags & posting on Facebook Brody was a puppy & had a big following. I still think some of our success was from his fan club "Growing Up With Brody" which is now our FB business page. Miss & love you big guy.

Frequently asked questions
Where do I put the information for the tag I am ordering ?

When checking out you will see an area marked "note to seller" you can put all your tag information; pet's name, phone number for the back of the tag and any special request that you would like. It would also be best to contact me about special requests before ordering.

Sizing details

No refunds for you ordering the incorrect size, listing have the sizes stated in the description. If you have a question about size contact me through Etsy before ordering.

Can my tag be made in different colors ?

I only work with brass (gold color), copper and nickel silver. When looking at your monitor the colors of the pieces may appear different.

The tags look heavy how much does the tag weight ?

On an average a medium size tag weights about one ounce.

How will I know my order has been received or shipped?

You will always receive a order conformation and shipping notice from Etsy. Be sure your email address is correct with your Etsy account. Also check you "junk" mail for these emails if you have not received them.

Information on the back of the tag. Can I have my name, my pet's name, address, zip code, our phone numbers including the vet's phone number and the chip number ?

All tags have room for your phone number.

Larger tags can have more information, but the more information on the back of the tag the smaller the font, the smaller the font the harder it is to read. I fell it is important for the person finding your dog is to see you phone number clearly.

Not everyone would take the time to take your pet to the vet's office to get them scanned or to take home and email you. But hopefully they will take the time to call you and that is the fastest by for your pet returned safely to you.
