Some of you may have noticed that little link over in my blogroll, the one that reads “tiddleywink jewelry.” Yeah, that’s me. Another hobby of mine. Staying busy, staying out of trouble. I mention somewhere on that site that a lot of my work is commissioned, and this current project is more of the same. A gal at the office volunteers with Colorado Pit Bull Rescue, and she asked if I would consider entering into a partnership with them. They’ll put up a link to my site on their CafePress store, and I’ll give them a cut of the profits from a line of pet tags I design specifically for them.
So here I am, putting my mad skillz to the test. I’m into the retro/rockabilly scene, therefore personalized tattoo charms in the vintage flash style of Sailor Jerry and Ed Hardy seemed like the way to go (and less likely to be a choking hazard like the gemstones could be). The prototype batch I whipped up received approval from the CPBR folks, so the tags are now going live. The large size tag (approximately 1″) is the first round to go up, but I hope to add small (.75″) tags within the next day or so. Each personalized tag costs $4 plus shipping, and $2 from the sale of each tag will be donated to CPBR.
Order your own here. The puppies appreciate it. Look at these faces!
