I Use My Jewelry To Memorialize Pets That People Have Lost

Years ago, when I started showing on Etsy, I made whatever animals I felt strongly about but it didn’t take long before requests for specific animals started coming. But it was the requests for pieces depicting beloved animals that had passed away that I felt compelled to do. For example, one of them was Border Collie Bugsy who was featured in National Geographic and had a huge vocabulary or the other time it was Oreo and Mrs. Ratinski who despite the fact that Oreo was an intense mouser were good playmates.

There have been lots of photos, most of which I have lost but the jewelry that memorializes them lives on. You can see more at my Etsy page!
