About Melissa Clayton
(In Melissa's words)

As a mother of three young boys I know how it feels to be proud of your children. I started Tiny Tag Designs because I wanted to create a simple, chic piece of jewelry that would proudly display my boys' names for the world to see. A way they could be with me even when we are apart.

I personally hand stamp each disc, oxidize it (turns the letters black), buff and polish per the customer's specifications. I drill a hole into the disc for the jump ring and hang it on a sterling silver ball chain or sterling silver bracelet. Each piece is made to order and truly one-of-a-kind.

This holiday season I am introducing several new products. Among the new products are initial necklaces and initial bracelets for women and little girls and a variety of adorable charms.

Tiny Tag Designs has been a wonderful adventure for me since leaving the traditional workforce over three years ago. I have enjoyed building relationships with several retail stores that carry Tiny Tag Design's collection, working with online retailers and creating new products for my loyal customers.
