Pet Hair and Fur Keepsake Ring

You may remember my last blog post where I mentioned that I had an order from Taiwan; well it has been completed now so I thought I would show it off. The customer initially wanted a pendant with some of her pet Golden Retriever’s fur encapsulated within it and then decided to also have a ring to match.

She also asked if I could also include the number ‘22’ within the keepsake ring and pendant as it was a special number for her and her dog. Sourcing the numbers was initially quite tricky but I do like a challenge. After hunting around various craft shops etc I finally discovered them at a supplier of dolls house miniatures; they are in fact miniature brass house numbers!

Pet Hair Keepsake Ring
This is the first hair or fur keepsake ring that I have made; I have made many pendants and bracelets in the past encapsulating hair but never a ring. The ring is sterling silver, fully adjustable to fit any finger size and the dog’s fur and number ‘22’ have been sealed with resin. I also made a pendant to match and included a couple of extra goodies since it was my first order from Taiwan!

The pendant and ring both arrived safely in Taiwan and she was very happy with them, in fact I quote ‘OH MY GOD..I got my package today and am honestly at a loss for words!’ It is lovely to receive great feedback like that an equally amazing to know that my keepsake jewellery is being worn and loved on the over side of the world!

  3. Mmm....interesting idea!
    My mom passed away last year and my dad kept some of her hair, it would be nice to make him a pendant as a gift...
