Gifts of the Heart: Pooch Tags

Jeffie, Rudy and the Dog Daddy recently gave me some late Mother's Day gifts and I know you want to see them!  They were late because they were custom made by Saltville, VA artist, Serina Jones.

They were worth the wait. 

A custom large dog tag of Jeffie, complete with a name tag.

Sweet little portrait earrings of Lucy and Tucker.

Serina's custom pet tag portrait of Rudy is a masterpiece!

However, it's this one that made me cry.

Custom portrait tag pendant of Lucy, my own Queen of Hearts.

Serina is an animal lover and has 3 Dachshunds, including one cart dog, plus a rescued Pittie.  She developed a "tag fetish," began collecting unique dog tags for her boys and when really good ones were hard to find... she began making her own.

Each dog tag is handcrafted from metal ( aluminum, copper, brass, nickel, bronze and white metal) and assembled with rivets, studs and metal accents.  Hand cut using no laser or high tech dies, each is unique and one of a kind.

In her Etsy shop, Pooch Tags, Serina offers a wide variety of ready made dog breed tags, as well as some amazingly creative shapes and sayings. 

Custom orders are welcome and the process is easy.  In our case, several head shot photographs were submitted to Serina via email and just look what she created!

Give your dog a new, stylish look with a specially designed dog tag from Pooch Tags.  I think Jeffie and Rudy are going to look pretty handsome in theirs.  I follow Pooch Tags on Facebook now just to see the new tags available and the customer submitted photos of happy Pooch Tags wearing dogs.

I love handmade.  I love dogs - especially my own.  I love gifts of the heart.  And I am one very much loved and happy dog mama!
