Unique Earrings for You - Artisan Handmade - Three for Thursday

 

 

Earrings are my “go to” jewelry.  They are the piece of jewelry I almost always put on right away when I get up in the morning.  BUT if I happen to leave the house without a pair dangling from my ears, and suddenly realize it, it feels like the earth somewhat shifts on its axis, like I’ve accidently wandered into the Upside Down.  Weird, I know.  I can’t wait to get back home to put on a pair to set things Rightside Up.

 

Since earrings are an integral part of my life, both to wear and create, this week’s Three for Thursday is called “Unique Earrings for You.”  Three pairs of earrings from three handmade jewelry artists are featured. The artists are: Mary of PrettyGonzo; Linda of VictorianStyleTreasures; and, me, Catherine of Shadow Dog Designs.  If something catches your eye, be sure to visit the artisan’s shop for more beauties. I hope you thoroughly enjoy this earrings collection featuring a wide range of styles.

Holiday Art Crawl - El Paso

 

 

On December 14 and 15 is the first annual Holiday Art Crawl right here in El Paso.  Four west side artists are opening their homes/studios for two days of shopping for unique handmade Christmas gifts for a friend, a relative, a loved one . . . or yourself.  Guest artists will also be found at most of the homes.  Food and beverages will be available (including my almost-world famous sangria at Nina Eaton's house).  You can also register for a chance to win a door prizes at each location.  So, mark your calendar and come join us at the Holiday Art Crawl!!

 

I'm thrilled that Nina Eaton has asked me to be the guest artist at her house.  I'll have a wide variety of handmade jewelry from my Shadow Dog Designs shop, mostly earrings and necklaces, but a few bracelets as well.  Everything is one of a kind with the exception of a few Christmas earrings.  Nina will have a wonderful selection of El Paso photography and gift items.  I have purchased several beautiful items from her over the course of a couple years, including, most recently, custom photo coasters of our sweet dog, Seamus (:  Here's a link to her online shop:  Nina Eaton Photography

 

Mother's Day Handmade Jewelry Gift Ideas by Shadow Dog Designs

 

 

Mother’s Day will soon be here, just a few short weeks from now.  With all the mass produced jewelry gifts out there, wouldn’t Mom REALLY love a handmade jewelry gift better?  Especially if the earrings or necklace are a one of a kind piece that no one else in the universe has!  Handmade items are made from the heart by the artisan who designed and created the piece.  I know I have always loved an artisan piece - they mean so much more to me than something tens of thousands of other people might have.

Handmade Jewelry - New Earrings and Necklaces by Shadow Dog Designs

 

 

Time seems to rush by so quickly these days.  Wasn’t it just Christmas and now we are already in February?  What happened to January?  Despite a month blasting by, I have been very busy making and listing new earrings and necklaces, many with a boho flair and some a bit more traditional.  All the handmade jewelry featured here are one of a kind designs - you will be the only person in the universe wearing that particular design (unless you have an evil twin in an alternate universe!).  Many of the earrings and necklaces use creations by artist friends from around the world.  Any of these will make a perfect Valentine’s Day gift, a birthday gift, a Mother’s Day gift or a “just because” gift to a loved one . . . or to yourself.

Christmas Gift Ideas - New Jewelry from Shadow Dog Designs

 

Thanksgiving is almost here and Christmas is not far behind.  To help with your holiday gift giving, I decided to showcase seven of my new necklaces and pairs of earrings along with three Christmas / winter earrings.  Each design here is one of a kind, except for the Christmas earrings.  Some designs are more boho flavored and some are more classic. So if a person on your list loves unique artisan jewelry, one (or more) of these choices will be perfect.  And, while you're at it, how about something for yourself?

New Handmade Necklaces and Earrings from Shadow Dog Designs

 

It’s hard to believe that’s it’s been almost a month since I shared my new handmade earrings and necklaces with you.  I have been traveling quite a bit, to Dallas and to Kerrville, in the Texas Hill Country (a favorite place).  Even with that, many new, one of a kind pieces of jewelry have been posted in my Indiemade shop.  They feature a wide range of materials, from gemstones to Czech glass, and a wide range of styles, from classic to boho. But one thing they all have in commen . . . they are all fun!  If something catches your eye, please click the live link below the photo to be taken to the listing for more information.

New, One of Kind Handmade Jewelry by Shadow Dog Designs

 

Can't believe it has been three weeks since my last post sharing new Shadow Dog Designs handmade jewelry with you.  I have been traveling quite a bit:  five days in San Francisco, a Justin Hayward concert in Austin and several days in Dallas getting our townhome somewhat in order.  More traveling will be done to Dallas, a city I'm not overly fond of.  But life sometimes takes strange turns.

Another two weeks have come and gone since my last new handmade jewelry post in my Shadow Dog Designs shop.  Between photographing, photo editing and listing new jewelry, I have also been getting ready for the Kermezaar Arts Festival that takes place this Saturday and Sunday.  It is a juried show for strictly handmade items and is taking place at the El Paso International Museum.  My first time!  Am excited to have been accepted!
