Due to my car accident in 2008 there may be on occassion it will take a bit longer up to 5 weeks. I want to make sure I am giving you my best work.
On those days that I feel my work is suffering due to the brain injury - I will postpone production. Thank you for understanding.

|Q.||My pet’s nails are in the clay mold, but I don’t want them in the finished pendant. Is it possible to remove them?|
|A.||Yes. Simply write “No Nails” on the back of the dried clay mold imprint. Our recommendation is to not have the nails in the finished pendant as more of the paw pad will be able to show. We highly recommmend NO NAILS with the heart shaped pendant.|

|A.||Typically, it will take 24-48 hours for your clay mold to air dry. IMPORTANT: DO NOT put the clay in the oven to dry. Clay will crack.|

It is very important to follow the simpe directions that come with the kit.

|A.||Use our Paw Imprint Kit to take a relief casting of your existing mold. The clay will not damage your pet’s original mold when taking the casting. One of our clients had a cement imprint of their dog in the back yard. She was able to get a good casting from the imprint using our clay.|
|Q.||I have an ink imprint of my pet’s paw. Can you make a pendant from ink prints?|
|A.||Yes, we can design a pendant for you. We would need a digital copy of the ink print. You can scan the imprint, and email to us at email@example.com.|
|Q.||What is your most popular shape?|
|A.||The 1” Dog Tag Pendant and the 1” Heart Pendant.|
|Q.||Will the relief of the paw image look as good as an imprint?|
|A.||Yes. It really is a personal decision that reflects the relationship you have with your pet. One of our clients would always rub the paw pads of her cat. She chose to have his paw image as a relief so she can still rub his paw. However, 90% of our clients choose the imprint style for their jewelry.|
