Available in 2 sizes these beautiful solid brass dog tags are something very special.

Small 25mm & Large 30mm

Each tag is individually cast in its own mold by a local Kenyan jeweller, so it has it's own unique character - just like your dog.

The Process:

The jeweller makes a mold for each tag from a mixture of sand and molasses, the mixture sets hard in the sun and is then ready for the molten brass to be poured. Once the brass has cooled and set the jeweller  breaks the mold apart to remove the tag in its 'rough' form. The next stage is to file the rough edges and polish the tag by hand, after some time the surfaces and edges become smooth and tactile and the tag is ready to have the loop added and a brass split ring.
