in early 2008 with over 10 years in the jewelry business Leslie Homan, the creative force behind Femme metale, a Corona-based jewelry company whose motto is "sterling silver jewelry that rocks", launched her new pet line Underground Hound. Knowing Leslie's ten years of experience as president of her own successful business, Corona tattoo artists Lacey McClellan and Dejah Garcia approached her with a unique concept: sterling silver dog charms with a tattoo and rock ‘n roll aesthetic. The high-quality and sturdy charms are easily attached to a dog collar and can also be worn by the dog’s owner on a silver chain or leather Choker. Lacey and Dejah, formerly of Hart and Huntington Tattoo in Las Vegas, Nevada, provide the creative inspiration for the line, which also features handmade leather collars.
Leslie said of the new venture, "There is a definite need in the pet accessories industry. Until now there was no alternative to all the fluffy, pink crystal items for fashionable dogs of trendsetting owners. Underground Hound fills that niche with fun and campy designs." "Born to Beg" and “Dog's Ruin" are a few of the clever expressions a dog could sport around its neck.
Leslie Homan is now running the business solo as
Lacey and Dejah are super busy rocking out the best tattoos at Dejah's own shop Trusted Tattoo in Corona, CA.
