Shadow Dog Designs

Shadow Dog Designs is your place to purchase beautifully unique, one-of-a-kind, handmade jewelry. The jewelry-making bug bit me hard about 13 years ago and I have been selling my designs ever then. As long as I can remember, I have always “made” something. 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. I love incorporating other artists’ pieces in my work for a truly unique piece. My Muse is Nature, and to be inspired, I just have to look out over the amazing desert landscape where my husband, my Shadow Dog, Seamus, and I are privileged to live.
I am a strong advocate for pet adoption – there are just too many loving souls waiting for their forever home. To help out, I started a line of “rescue dog” jewelry about a year ago. When one of these pieces sells, 1/2 of the purchase price is donated to the local Humane Society where we adopted our sweet Seamus, the newest in a long line of Shadow Dogs.”

Description

Amber Sun Dangle Earrings ” SOLARIS” definitely radiate cheerful goodness. How can you not feel happy each and every time you see the Mona Lisa smiles on the sun faces of these artisan made copper dangles?

The cheery copper sun charms created from start to finish by Kristi of Kristi Bowman Design.  Suns put in a kiln and fired at high heat.  A very detailed circular sun face is inscribed into the middle of each piece with eight flares radiating out from each face.  There is a great deal of texture to the charms, the sun faces raised from the flares and the background.  Because of their handmade nature, they are very similar but not exactly the same. The sun faces are slightly domed with a fairly smooth back.  The suns wire wrapped to the upper part of the earrings with copper wire.

Catherine Waterhouse – Owner/Designer

Experiencing a life long love affair with Nature (am a self-professed “nature geek”), I am able to satisfy a strong desire to create by designing one-of-a-kind jewelry mainly using semi-precious stones and sterling or fine silver. But polymer clay, Czech glass, Swarovski crystals, copper and lampwork beads also play a huge part in the design process. My Muse is Nature, and to be inspired, I just have to look out over the amazing desert landscape where my husband, my Shadow Dog, Seamus, and I are privileged to 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!”

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.
