i kissed my suburban cubicle goodbye...
In February 2010, I started making jewelry & pet tags as a hobby in a back bedroom affectionally named "the hobbit room" due to its barely 7-foot ceilings. After running out of family & friends to gift to, I decided to see if I would have any success on Etsy. What started as my little 'outlet for creativity' away from my job as a Business Development Manager, the shop quickly required hammering well past my bedtime to keep up with open orders.
Opportunities with my husband's work spurred a cross-country move later that year from Chicago to New Hampshire. This allowed me to reduce my time doing very corporate things and focus on exploring our new surroundings and work full-time on my passion - this shop! I've never worked harder or loved my job as much as I do now.
With 2 pups, 2 horses and several chickens running afoot, we've realized our 'country living' dream -- working at home and renovating our 1800s farmhouse in New England. The history of time-worn places is so inspiring to me -- especially in this age when so much value is placed on buying new. I try to put a little of that rustic love into each of my pieces.
Thanks for stopping by the shop and for your support. I hope the path brings you back often.

Frequently asked questions
Custom and personalized orders
Our items are custom-made, so refunds will only be made if the item is damaged and a replacement can't be mailed. Mistakes sometimes happen - if you catch my error on your custom tag, I will gladly re-make the same tag for you and ship it at my expense. Open communication is key - we try to portray everything we sell as accurately as possible so there are no surprises. We ask that you communicate what you're looking for as correctly as possible so your needs are met!
Each piece is handmade for you (or your pet) with high quality metals, with style and comfort in mind. Measurements for pieces are always listed in our descriptions, along with the most accurate description possible. We always suggest drawing out the size to get a visual of what to expect.
Can you stamp a piece with my graphic / icon / trademarked logo / drawing?
Nope. I stamp with a sets of steel stamps, and unlike a computer, cannot replicate your icon. Photos of the design stamps I offer are widely seen throughout the site - I am limited to those. If you're set on this design, I'd suggest reaching out to an engraver who might be able to work with you.
Can you send me a proof prior to making my item?
Sorry, No. The nature of hand-stamping is permanent, as I stamp with forged steel stamps and don't manipulate fonts or graphics as you would on a computer. That aside, I don't have time to photograph and email photos, I need to be in the workshop making orders! You can expect a piece very similar to the example listed in the shop. A variety of fonts, metals, and designs are photographed in the shop, and feel free to convo me with any questions / concerns you might have prior to ordering!
