Jewelry to Honor Pets

Wayne Read, CEO/President Forged & Formed, Inc. explains 40 year plus unique jewelry artisan keepsake business and  how there can be customizable pet pieces which are available to honor or to celebrate your current four-legged family or dogs and cats who were once in your life, and to do so in everything from stainless to gold. He also explains there’s even a way to celebrate your pets’ nose which can go into or on top of a piece of jewelry. There’s jewelry here for men and for women, including a key chain. It’s amazing how these images are transformed into jewelry. We found people are more willing to spend money on their pets than many people in their lives, Read says.
