A furry friend to snuggle up with and watch TV.
A walking buddy to motivate you when you don’t feel like exercising.
A warm, wet tongue that thinks it’s your alarm clock.
Receiving the most excited greeting upon returning home.
My name is Stephanie and I have the pleasure of creating jewellery for dog owners – made with their dog’s own fur.
I create jewellery that celebrates the relationship people have with their dogs.
So, you love your dog, and you would like to know more about having a keepsake made? Please keep reading.

You know that fluffy undercoat that your dog leaves all over your house. That’s the stuff! Unfortunately, not every breed has a fluffy undercoat, like our family dog, but if your dog does, follow the steps below.
Brush and brush and brush some more. When you have enough of that fluffy undercoat to fill a large resealable Ziploc bag you can stop brushing. Note: the cleaner the fur, the nicer the beads and less washing for me!
Send your dog's fur to me at: Stephanie Rehkopf P.O. Box 1349 Fonthill, ON L0S 1E0
Include your dog’s name and your name and contact information – your email address would be great so if I have any questions, I can ask! please print clearly
Pet Value in Fonthill has a sample on display if you wish to see a necklace in person. Pet Value website
Now it’s my turn to get to work. Taking that ball of fluff and turning it into a beautiful piece of jewellery takes time. (Approximately 2 weeks) After actually making the beads, I give them a few washes and let them dry. Then all those beads are strategically styled, and attached to chain link and a clasp to complete your necklace.
Payment of $85.00 can be e-mailed to me through Interac e-Transfer.
My e-mail address is: StephRehkopf@gmail.com
PLEASE NOTE: If you live in the Niagara Region, Ontario I can happily meet with you to collect fur, deliver your keepsake and collect payment. Just send me an email or contact me through Stephanie Rehkopf Wearable Keepsakes Facebook. page
Once I have received your dog’s fur and your payment I can begin making your wearable keepsake. If you would like to make other payment arrangements please ask!
When your necklace is finished, I can pop it in the mail and send it along to you.
