Custom Paddle (Tail) Pendants are re-creations of your favorite manatee’s tail paddle. They are customized to match a photograph of that special manatee you might have had an experience with, helped rescue, work with, or just plain love. Each manatee has a different paddle (tail). They are individual with nicks, notches, varied identifying marks and some are quite symmetrical. Order one now, so you can “Wear Your Memory Close To Your Heart”! An engraving of the animals name OR a special date/place will be on the back-side of the paddle pendant and is included in price. Send us a digital photograph by email. See instructions below.
Size is approximately 1″ or 23mm long. All handmade items will vary slightly. Bail fits 3.5mm.
The prices are for a CUSTOMIZED Manatee Paddle in sterling silver. We also make a generic manatee paddle that can be purchased on a different page, click here for regular/generic.
- Information about photos:
-We need a clear straight on shot of the paddle. If you don’t have a good picture, Terri can usually work with it BUT, remember, the better the photo, the better the detail you’ll get in your pendant. Include the information listed.
-Send image to firstname.lastname@example.org
-Animal’s name. Sometimes we can’t put the name due to certain corporations that have proprietary laws, but we can engrave a date or word
-Facility where you work or where the animal lives
-Do you prefer the dorsal side. If yes, the picture needs to be of the dorsal side. Whatever side of paddle the picture is taken, that will be the front of pendant. The engraving is on the back side. If it makes a difference to you, please let Terri know.

“Hello, I was emailing to say I have gotten my custom tail and I love it! It’s exactly what I hoped for and more! I couldn’t wait for it to come and it was well worth the wait! It the perfect size and everything! Great job! And thank you!” ~Kayla M.
“Terri Miller’s work is loved by so many, myself included. I still have my first and most favorite piece by Terri and Roger, Delphi’s fluke that I got when I was 12 years old. It is one of my favorite possessions, and I have been so lucky to have several pieces by Custom Tails Jewelry, including a custom fluke that Terri did an absolutely amazing job on for my birthday last year. I have met people from all over the country that wear their favorite animal close to their heart thanks to Terri. The work she does is not only impeccable – but it makes so, so many people happy!” ~Alexandra M., FL
