This picture does NOT do these pieces justice! The pictures on Etsy do not do these justice!
I'm not a "jewelry person" but I wanted to commemorate Hapoy Hannah's "existence", her courageois journey, the hero that she is to me . to show my love for her.

These pieces seem to say it best. And I wore the "Be More Dog " to work tonight and found myself simply touching it and it kept me centered and calm. He kept me connected to my Happy Hannah who is home snoozing until she hears me cme home. Then the non-stop "feed me, feed me, cookie, cookie" starts and al is well in our world!

I jave "forever treasures" that will ALWAYS remind me of our love, our joy, our fun, our bliss, our special bnd AND the love of my tripawd family. We will all always be connected.

Thank you Rene for making these lovely, lovely keepsakes. They mean the world to us.

Okay take a look at this photo.....I keep trying to get a better picture but they really are even more impressive in person. And like Shooter said, this is a great way to do Christmas shopping AND help Tripawds!

Oh yeah, and when I was opening the package, Happy Hannah was all over it trying to "help" me. I'm thinking, well, isn't this sweet...she's excited too! Yeah, excited aleight! Tucked i side were two tiny little dog cookies! I thought she was going to eat up my necklaces trying to get to them!

Those are very beautiful Sally.  I love mine too.  :)   I am actually thinking of putting them on one chain and wearing them together because they mean so much to me I can't decide which to wear all the time.  So both of them will work  :)

Awwww paw shucks Sally! Thank you so much for your support. It was our pleasure.

Most of our jewelry is made to order and those our our favorite pieces to create. I can tell you that with each swing of the hammer, each drill hole, each time we polish it up, it really warms our hearts to think of the people whose Tripawds these are made in honor of. Thank you so much for allowing us to honor your amazing Hannah! We're so glad you liked them.

Those are very pretty Sally.  I had gotten a bracelet with Brendol's name on it and stuff, I love it.  Wear it all the time.  Love always to you and Hannah Sue.

Adelaide is a young tripawd Husky, from an injury.  Her amp was on 10/1/12.  She has 4 sisters, Aissa (a senior border collie/chow), Maggie May (a puppy Great Pyrenees), Mathilde and Morrigan and 1 baby brother, Bagheera.  We are all watched over by our angel Brendol, who was dx with OSA 1/30/13, amp on 2/6/13, and left us on 8/20/13.
