New Handmade Jewelry by Shadow Dog Designs

 

 

 

The summer heat has settled on the land here in the Desert Southwest with lots of sun and a big blue sky with rarely any clouds.   That means there is more creative time in my jewelry studio as opposed to creative time outside in the flower beds.  So I wanted to share with you eleven of my newest creations, four necklaces and seven pairs of earrings, found in my SHADOW DOG DESIGNS jewelry shop  The handmade necklaces and earrings are one of a kind designs and will make unique gifts for a loved one . . . or, of course, yourself!  If something catches your eye and you want to see more photos and details, please click either on the photo or on the short description under the photo.  Thanks for looking.  And remember to SHOP SMALL  and to SHOP HANDMADE!

 

 

Pick a Bouquet of Spring Flowers - Artisan Handmade Floral Gifts

 

 

Spring unlocks the flowers to paint the laughing soil.

 

Bishop Reginald Heber ~

 

 

I have always loved the quote shared above.  Bishop Reginald Heber (1783-1826), well known for his poetry, describes in just a few words the joyousness of spring on the return of flowers.  I, myself, can’t wait to finish the new flower bed I started digging last fall and filling it with native plants chosen specifically for pollinators of all types.  Let the flowers paint the laughing soil!  And let the colorful flowers be an important food source for bees of all types, flower flies, butterflies, moths, wasps and hummingbirds.  

 

With all-things-flower in mind, I invited artist friends to share two of their floral designs.  As you will see in the beautiful items below, there is a wide range of flowers to be had, from note cards to jewelry, from lampwork beads to photography, from photography to digital art and many, many more!  Be sure to pick a bouquet of floral beauties and support small handmade businesses!
