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.
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 into a bead from polymer clay, baked to harden. Depending on colours, some pets will then have details added with acrylic paint, before it is sealed.
The beads are threaded onto waxed cotton cord and onto a jump ring and lobster clip. The current stock of clip and keyrings are a gunmetal colour.
Generally, the average custom sculpted pet face measure approx 3-4 x 2-3 cm in order to fit over the magnet. If you wish for it to be smaller, 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 pet beads 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 miniature size and materials used, making the outcome an artistic likeness, rather than a perfect replica.
Pet memorial gift
The fridge magnets arrive 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.
Please read the care instructions prior to purchasing, to ensure you will find the item suitable.
