marymaryhandmade has been on my radar for a very long time, since she made the cutest necklaces/pendants. And when I accidentally found out she has a dachshund one, I had to get one. I ordered on 5/14/14 and received it on 5/24/14. It was not bad for a made to order item. I love the packaging. It came in a smaller box (see pic below) with the actual design stamped on the lid and it's nestle in a bigger box with lots of crinkle paper. It's ready for gift giving. The size of the dachshund is not small and not too big... just perfect to be seen. I love it. What I do not like is I have ordered the longer length, I actually should have ordered the shorter one (16-18 inches). And I also do not like the lobster claw clasp. I prefer the regular spring clasp... that's just a personal preference. Overall I am very happy with my purchase and it's cute and go well with my dachshund jewelry collection.
