Featured Shop of the Month – Shadow Dog Designs. This month Catherine Waterhouse of Shadow Dog Designs is in the Spotlight! You will find beautifully unique, one-of-a-kind, handmade jewelry in this shop. The jewelry-making bug bit me hard about 13 years ago and I have been selling my designs ever then.
Specializing in the art of creating jewelry you will love to wear! The desire to create is satisfied by designing one-of-a-kind jewelry, mainly using semi-precious stones and sterling or fine silver, but also polymer clay, Czech glass, Swarovski crystals, and, more recently, copper and lampwork beads.

Meet The Artist
Experiencing a life long love affair with Nature, I am able to satisfy a strong desire to create by designing one-of-a-kind jewelry using semi-precious stones and sterling or fine silver. Polymer clay, Czech glass, Swarovski crystals, copper and lamp-work beads also play a huge part in my design process. My Muse is nature. To be inspired, I just have to look out over the amazing desert landscape where my husband, dog, Seamus, and I are live.
My work has been sold through galleries in Virginia, Texas and South Carolina, through art shows, home shows, Facebook, Pinterest, Wanelo, Flickr and ArtFire . . . and now Indiemade. I LOVE my “job!”
People always ask about my business name. It was named 14 years or so ago to honor our rescue dogs at the time who would “shadow” me everywhere and give me their undying love, support, playfulness, dog smiles and dog kisses. The original Shadow Dogs have walked the Rainbow Bridge, but they live one in my shop name, banner and avatar. Our newest rescue Shadow Dog, Seamus, has been with us now for 4 years now and is the biggest, most loveable goofus you have ever wanted to share a life with. He was found at the local Humane Society, immediately won our hearts and was whisked home.
I am an ardent supporter of adopting dogs from shelters. To help the many sweeties waiting for their forever homes, I have started a line of “dog rescue” jewelry. For each piece sold, 1/2 of the purchase price is donated to the local Humane Society. I am thrilled and humbled that the earrings are brisk sellers both on line and at the arts festivals I attend.
All of the jewelry I create is designed and handmade in a smoke free, dog friendly studio.
