Whether you want to spoil a dog lover friend or yourself, or perhaps ease the pain after the loss of a pet, personalized dog or cat brooch is a wonderful choice.
Dani has been perfecting her polymer clay skills and technique since 2015 and is now based out of her home in East Gippsland, Victoria, Australia. She grew up on a farm surrounded by animals, including pet cats and dogs and this is probably where her love for animals began.
She prides herself on being able to capture the traits that make each pet unique. To help with this, please let her know if your pet has any signature facial expressions, specific markings etc that you want included.
The pet faces are sculpted from polymer clay, baked to harden. Depending on colours, some pets will then have details added with acrylic paint, before it is sealed.
Brooch has a stainless steel or silver plated non-locking bar pin.
Lapel pin uses a gold plated brass tie tack.
Generally, the average custom pet brooch/ pin measures approx 3- 4cm in diameter. If you wish for them to be smaller or larger, please add a note at the checkout or let Dani know when you send through photos.
You’ll need to send through at least a few photos of the pet that you want the broach or pin modelled on. Please check out the suggested photos to send through.
Production and processing time
The average turnaround time for custom orders is 1-2 weeks, plus shipping. However, in peak periods (eg Christmas, Mother’s Day), this May be as long as 6 weeks. If there is a specific date you need the item by, feel free to make contact to avoid disappointment.
Whilst the style is ‘lifelike’, there are limitations due to the size and materials used, making the outcome an artistic likeness, rather than a perfect replica.
Pet memorial gift
The item arrives beautifully packaged, so is suitable to be sent directly to the recipient, if you wish. You can even select a greeting card and Dani can write a little note within if you are purchasing as a gift.
Please read the care instructions prior to purchasing, to ensure you will find the item suitable.
