Heart On My Sleeve Dogtag Cuff by TarpanBeadworks Heart On My Sleeve Dogtag Cuff by TarpanBeadworks
Edit: Oh wow, my first Daily Deviation! Thanks to everyone who has favorited and commented!!!

Etsy listing here ---> www.etsy.com/listing/41103220/...

All the dog tags used in this cuff once belonged to shelter animals - vaccination tags are non-transferable - and instead of being thrown away they have been upcycled into this thought-provoking cuff. Consider the fate of shelter animals while you look at this bracelet. What happened to the dogs that these tags belonged to? What breed of dogs were they? Were they adopted? Returned to their owner? Euthanized? The tags provide no answers except the year that they are valid for.

Each tag is captured using woven seed beads, and the bracelet is backed with velvety chamois leather. It ties to the wrist using a leather thong.

Measurements : 7" + tie

Both the beadwork and concept are very well done. As an animal lover and dog owner, it makes me sad to look at, but also inspires me to find more ways to help animals in need. Congrats on a well deserved DD!

Thanks! I'm so excited... this is one of my favorite jewelry pieces. I collected hundreds of rabies tags during this time period intending to do a lot more of this type of thing.
