Human House Harvey: Copper

by Stephanie

Human House Harvey, Copper
There aren’t many occasions where I’d choose to incorporate a metallic into my life. But this past year has proven to be a real year of acceptance, including a complete admiration for copper.  It all began after a trip to Chile, one of the lead suppliers of copper, and my purchase of a simple copper candle holder. From there, my copper obsession grew into a beast of sorts, and now I can’t get enough of the lustrous metal.  Here are just a few copper goodies that I have my eye on for me, my home and my pup. —Stephanie

HUMAN – As of late, when I’m not feeling silver or gold for my accessories, I opt for a copper flair. These simple and delicate copper bangles are making me swoon.

HOUSE – It can be hard to find a desk lamp that is  functional, space conscious and stylish.  This copper beauty might just be the winner in all three departments.

HARVEY – While you might not want to hear the chiming of a bell with every move of your pup, but these copper collar bells are so charming.


Beyond an adorable bell to adorn your pup’s collar, it’s  important to have proper identification and registration in order to keep your pets safe.

Here are just a few things to consider in regards to pet identification:

  • Microchip. If you adopt your pet from a local shelter or rescue, the majority of them are microchipping your pets already.  If not, it’s recommended that you microchip them and register them with your local animal care and control in order to keep your pets safe and more easily found should they ever go missing.
  • ID tags. There are so many fantastic options when it comes to ID tags these days, so why not accessorize your pup’s collar with a few. It’s best to include the dog’s name and easiest method of contact on the tag.
  • Vaccination IDs. Some vets and shelters offer tags that indicate your pet has received the rabies vaccine.  It’s nice to include this in your pets set of tags in order to let a good samaritan who potentially rescues your lost pet that they have been vacinated.
  • Temporary ID tags.  If you travel often with your pet, it’s a good idea to create temporary ID tags for either a local shelter in the area or a friend/family member in that area. Local addresses and contact details could help ensure a speedier recovery.


Suggested For You


  • don’t forget to include your area code with your phone number! i know this may seem obvious to some, but many don’t think to do it. it is really necessary even if you aren’t traveling with your pet.

  • Purchased the bracelets along with hoop earrings, nice shop owner to deal with, Jenn.
