As you know from my two previous posts, my girls are my everything! To me they are not dogs. They are my daughters, and I would do anything for them. My husband and I spoil our girls and love giving them little gifts. Roxie has needed a new collar for quite some time, but we knew that we wanted it to be something super special.
Two weeks ago my husband and I were at our local Farmer’s Market and met David and Jackie Pressley of DJP Handmade Fine Jewelry & Leather Goods. They were the guest artist vendor for the day, and their products were AMAZING! Not only are their products super high quality, but they are also affordable. David and Jackie live locally in town and are so friendly. They are happy to answer any questions you have and will help you to customize a piece. You can tell that they both truly care about their product and their craft. My husband and I absolutely loved their dog collars and decided to have one customized for Roxie.
We chose to have a leather collar made in British Tan (which is a beautiful deep red color), with antiqued brass hardware, and Roxie’s name custom hand-tooled on it. Yes, DJP does HAND-TOOLING and their work is absolutely AMAZING, intricate, and beautiful. We chose the font that we wanted Roxie’s name done in, and provided her neck size. After ordering Roxie’s collar we anxiously waited to see the finished product.
Yesterday my husband got an e-mail that Roxie’s collar was ready! We were so excited and headed to DJP’s workshop this morning to pick it up. Her collar was even more amazing than we could have dreamed! The color was beautiful, the work was AMAZING and super high quality, and you can tell how much love and care goes into DJP’s products. I will definitely be getting Lani a personalized collar soon as well. DJP’s workshop is absolutely amazing as well and we got to see some pieces that David is currently working on as well as past projects.
DJP Handmade does a lot of vendor shows. You can also order their products on their website, DJPHandmade.com. Not only do they do leather working (wallets, collars, keychains, bracelets, belts, handbags) but they also make the most beautiful fine jewelry (necklaces, rings, money clips, bracelets). If you are looking for a special, one-of-a-kind piece for yourself, a loved one, or your furry baby look no further than DJP Handmade. You will not be disappointed!
