Okay fine…call us tag snobs. It might be true. The three of us LOVE dog tags. There are so many fun and whimsy ones out there, it’s tough to just go out and buy a plain ol thin metal dog bone one. That, and Bailey likes to look stylish too. This week we found another Etsy store called Doggone Tags. The tags are all mixed metal, with super fun whimsy designs but with that aged look to it, which is right up our alley.
Melissa, the owner has been making people jewelry for quite some time and then she got a puppy. It was all over after that. I can imagine this dog must have a bazillion totally cool dog tags, one for every day at least. I am glad Melissa started making dogs tags as well, because I just think they are beautiful.
Bailey says the Soaring Heart is her favorite. She loves all the curlies etched in the metal and the big heart in the middle fits who she is. We can even get two phone numbers etched on the back!
Banjo loves the Jedi, he didn’t tell me why, but I think he feels like he’s some sort of Superstar. If there was a category for Superstar lickers…I think he’d be right. I like how the back has another layer of copper on the back too for the phone number. It’s awesome! They have all been soldered together for strength and longevity.
So if you’re in the market for a new dog tag, check out Melissa’s store and her other work, I don’t think you could go wrong with any of these items!
She is working on a Facebook page for her business, but for now you can search for her on Facebook at Melissa Gay Gilkey.
