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. Visit my shop to see all my creations!”

Description

These Mint Green Flower Earrings are just darling! Even though they are small in size, the lovely BELLISIMI FIORI flowers earrings will pack a big stylish punch.  The handmade pansy earrings feature two-sided minty green Czech glass beads. A recessed ray design area in the middle of the flowers.  A rich metallic copper Picasso finish with a wash of lilac was added to complement the mint color and to highlight the details.   Two types of crystals were stacked on top of the flower beads:  copper rondelles with sparkling clear Czech crystals and faceted Swarovski crystal bicones in a rich “topaz.”  A small copper bead was placed on top of each Swarovski crystal.

Earrings that you will want to reach for again and again, the BELLISIMI FIORI earrings were carefully designed and handmade by Catherine of Shadow Dog Designs for the woman who adores wearing one of a kind jewelry.  “Bellisimi Fiori” is Italian for “beautiful flowers.”

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.
