Jewelry for Geeks and Gamers: Personalized Dog Tags and COD Charms

personalized dog tags

My game-inspired dog tags

I’ve been inspired by my obsession with Call of Duty, and by the many awesome gaming girlfriends I’ve made while playing online. I thought it would be fun to put something game-related into my jewelry design, and here are a couple of things I came up with: personalized dog tags, and Call of Duty inspired charms.

I put my name on one tag, and team name G33KGIRLZ on the other. To make the tags look a bit more rustic, I gave them a brushed finish and hammered the edges a little. Perfect! Polished the tags with jewelry wax and strung them on stainless steel chain. I love the way they look! Slightly battle-worn, but still shiny. 🙂 Fun for a boy or a girl!

I also found some cute pewter charms and pendants to go with the Call of Duty theme. Combat boots, machine guns, grenades, and more. I’m working on putting them together on necklaces, bracelets, earrings, etc. I’ve opened an etsy shop for these, so if you’re interested, go check it out! Geek and Gamer Stuff. I’ll be adding more items soon.
