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!”

Product Description

Totem Spirit Horse Necklace is a unique piece of jewelry you will fall in love with! If you ever have had a loving, caring relationship with a magnificent horse – or wish you had – you will absolutely adore the timeless beauty of the SPIRIT HORSE handmade necklace.

The artisan created ceramic focal features a regal, arched neck horse head with a raised, 3-D effect.   It has a rustic, totem feel with its custom mixed, non-toxic rust brown glaze in a matte finish and ancient spiral design found at the bottom of the pendant.  The 3-D effect was given an added punch since the more of the glaze settled more into the recessed areas of the horse head design than the raised areas.  The back of the pendant is unglazed and slightly concave.  The horse head pendant is connected to the main body of the necklace with a handmade sterling silver beaded bail.

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.
