How those little ones leave their mark on us forever! This piece can be made with your child's *actual* handprint or footprint (the kind they take in ink at the hospital or you can do at home) or I can use a representative print. I will take the image, shrink it down, and etch it deeply into solid sterling silver.

♥ A Wonderful & Special Gift Item! ♥
♥ Awesome for Military Dads! Available with matching Dog Tag locket! ♥
♥ Also a beautiful memorial for those who have lost a child.♥

Your choice of words and symbols on the opposite side in solid sterling silver. Limited only by what will fit on the piece. That varies with the fonts and symbols chosen.

The dog tag itself is about 36mm x 26mm or 1.25" x 1".

The chain is a 4mm elongated rolo chain with thick lobster clasp. You may choose the length when ordering from the menu.

Matte finish is the default - I can also do antiqued upon request.

Please keep in mind that not all font, finishes, or symbols are available on all pieces. Check the description of your desired item(s), and if you have any questions, just let me know.


1. SELECT THE FONT - Remember, font size is "fixed" so it's better to use small fonts for lots of text, and medium for less text. Large fonts not recommended for this piece.
2. SELECT THE FINISH - If you'd like antiqued or matte (shiny/bright is default)
3. LET ME KNOW WHAT YOU WANT STAMPED - (please message me or explain in the "comments to seller" upon checkout) Remember, this is subject to the space available. Fonts vary in size.

♥ This item is hand-stamped, and the letters will not be perfectly straight - it's part of the charm of this artisan item :) Additionally, stamping is a much deeper impression, and also blackened, to be much more visible than engraving. We have other hand-stamped items available in our store, if you would like to see more examples.

♥ All orders are packaged suitably for gift giving.

♥ Most retail items ship within about 1-2 weeks from order date. Need it sooner? Just ask. Often I can accommodate! Every single piece is sawn, hammered, pierced, filed, oxidized, buffed, and finished by hand - right here. We take great pride in our work, and even though our processes might be a bit slower, they are time-honored with classic proven quality. If you want the best hand-hewn look, you have come to the right place.

♥ First class shipping is FREE!


The amount of information you'd like stamped may limit the fonts available due to size.

Frequently Asked Questions

Wholesale availability

I offer wholesale pricing on many items for group buys and brick and mortar shops. You can find my wholesale line sheets on the Etsy wholesale site. Contact me for more information.

Custom and personalized orders

Since almost everything I make is custom, the best way to order and let me know is to take a look at the options available in the item description for that listing.

Don't worry - I'll never make your order without checking for your personalization, if it was not included with your order.

I can make just about anything, so if you don't see what you want in my shop, just message me and I can discuss a quote, options, and even a custom listing should you wish.

What is the timing of items you make? When will they ship?

Most retail items ship within about 1-2 weeks from order date. IF YOU NEED AN ITEM SOONER than the listed forging time, contact me - often I can get a single order out sooner if requested.

Exceptions: During busy holidays, it can take longer. If you are needing it for a specific occasion or date, check with me and make sure you'll receive it in time, or purchase express postage.

Sometimes, items ship SOONER, because they are ready-stock. If this is the case, the listing will state that.

Any any case - if you need something by a certain time - please contact me and double check. If I know, I can help. If I don't know... it is subject to fate.

Gift wrapping and packaging

Yes! All of our items arrive in professional packaging, with an information card about our items. Very suitable for gift giving. No receipt is included (saving a tree and also your recipient) because you can view it online at any time.

Gift cards handwritten upon request - no charge!

Sizing details

Since I actually hand- forge my items, most of them can be altered, changed, sized, etc. I try to be very thorough in my descriptions, but I encourage you to ask if you need a sizing exception. I can usually accommodate - and happily!

I ordered the dog tag for my husband. I got it engraved with all of our names and he absolutely loves it. I ordered one week before Valentines Day and asked the seller if the order could be expedited to recieve for Valentines Day. I recieved the package the day before valentine's day and wasn't charged extra! Aside from that the item is great quality so glad I bought it

I sent this artist a long jumbled mess of ideas and preferences and thoughts about what I wanted to see on this piece, and in return she sent me a beautiful, delicate, well designed treasure. It's even better than I had imagined:)

When I first received my order, there was a smudge on the dog tag and the chain was slightly different than the advertised picture. I sent a message to Bonnie and she responded promptly. I sent back the necklace and received it back (very happy with final product!) within a very reasonable amount of time. We exchanged many messages and I was very impressed with her professionalism and communication. Very good seller to work with! Thanks again Bonnie!

I absolutely loved this custom made necklace Bonnie made for my boyfriend for our anniversary. Its crafted beautifully and she was very easy to contact and work with!
