A pendant fit for a king...(at least that's what we call him.)


Do you have a dog in your life that needs adornment?

You may remember our dog-friend, Rocco.


"I didn't do it!"

Danelle came up with a really cute dog-tag idea.

Here is what she used:

Materials
Sterling Silver Oval , (20mm x 38mm), 24 gauge
Copper Dog Bone, 24 gauge
 Dog Bone Design Stamp
Paw Design Stamp
Mini Brass Hex Nuts, Washers and Bolts, 1/4", 10 sets
Economy Letter and Number Stamp Set, 13/64", Uppercase Gothic

Tools
2.5" x 2.5" Steel Bench Block
1lb Brass Head Mallet
Metal Hole Punch Pliers, 1.8mm hole
Hex Wrenches

Here is what she did:

She stamped the oval with the Paw stamp in a repetitive pattern. Then cut off the loop at the top of the dog bone tag, filed it and stamped the name and dog bone. Marked and punched holes in both blanks and attached the nuts.

Voila! A pendant ready for Rocco. (Now if only we could get him to answer the phone!)

Don't worry cat-lovers. We have a cat-centered idea coming soon!
