I have been making silver paw print charms since 2011, following an intensive training course. After losing my first dog Zac, I wanted to make as many memories and keepsakes of him that I could. I already had his paw print to use, and of course being a photographer I have many lovely photos of him.


Each charm is 99.9% pure silver, sterling silver is 92.5% silver and contains 7.5% of other metals to make it stronger but it can also tarnish quicker.


There are 4 options for you to choose:

  • A charm including a print taken from your dog's paw and your dog's name. Usually your dog's name will be on the front for a medium charm and on the back for a small charm but this all depends on the length of the name and the shape you choose.
  • A charm with a paw print only and a round mini charm with the first letter of your dog's name.
  • A charm with your dog's name only.
  • A gift voucher.


Every charm is handmade which makes each one completely unique, none will ever be exactly the same as another. You can either take the prints from your dog using an Inkless Print Kit , just add one to your order, or you can send your own prints if you already have them.
