Whist custom pet earrings are a best- seller from the custom creations range, not everyone wears or changes their earrings. This is where a custom pet necklace can be a wonderful alternative.

The pendants come on an adjustable length waxed cotton cord, but can easily be transferred over to a chain or alternative necklace in the future should you choose to.


Dani, the maker, 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.  

Base Materials 

The pet faces are hand-sculpted into a pendant with an eyepin from polymer clay, then baked to harden. Depending on colours, some pets will also have details added with acrylic paint, before it is sealed.

The pendants are threaded onto a waxed cotton cord which is adjustable in length.


Should you wish to have extra pendants added or a pet orther thaqn a dog or cat, please contact Dani for a quote. 



Generally, the average custom sculpted pet face pendant measures approx 3-4 cm in diameter. If you wish for it to be smaller, please add a note at the checkout or let Dani know when you send through photos. 


Pet photos

You’ll need to send through at least a few photos of the pet that you want the pet pendant modelled on. Please check out the suggested photos to send through.

Dani’s happy for you to email the photos or to message them through Instagram or the Facebook page

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 miniature size and materials used, making the outcome an artistic likeness, rather than a perfect replica. 

Dani 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.


Pet memorial gift

The necklace arrives beautifully packaged, so are 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.


Care instructions
