New Necklaces and Earrings - Handmade Jewelry by Shadow Dog Designs

 

 

 

I've been working hard to list new handmade jewelry in my Shadow Dog Designs shop.  But with being a vendor at numerous art shows and with perfect weather for working in the flower beads, it's often hard to spend long hours in front of the computer.  But new earrings and necklaces have been listed and I decided to share them here:  nine new designs and one pair of Christmas earrings.   I hope you enjoy the new jewelry.  

 

 

 

Halloween and Day of the Dead Handmade Jewelry - Three for Thursday

 

 

Halloween and Day of the Dead will be here very soon.  Halloween is the last day of this month, October 31, when ghouls and goblins and vampires and princesses and more show up at your door for tricks or (preferably) treats.  Day of the Dead is actually celebrated on two days: November 1 for Dia de los Angelitos (Day of the Little Angels - for deceased children) and November 2 is Dia de los Muertos (for spirits of all the dead).  Women who celebrate these holidays definitely need unique handmade jewelry! To help with this, three jewelry items from three handmade artists are featured in this Halloween and Day of the Dead Jewelry blog post. The artists are: Mary of PrettyGonzo; Linda of VictorianStyleTreasures and, me, Catherine of Shadow Dog Designs.  I hope you enjoy the earrings, bracelet and necklace that are showcased. Please visit the artists’ shops for more wonderful handmade jewelry, many one of a kind designs.

New Jewelry - Handmade Earrings and Necklaces by Shadow Dog Designs

 

It has been quite a while since I shared new, one of a kind necklace and earrings designs.  The autumn show season has started and it seems I’m making new items, setting up at shows, selling at shows and packing up from shows.  So my Shadow Dog Designs online shop hasn’t seen a whole lot of new handmade items posted lately - and many that were posted have sold. But I wanted to share the five newest pieces, plus three that are fairly new and one Halloween and one Christmas design.  To see more information about individual items, either click on the photograph or the link under the photo - both will take you to the item in the shop. I hope you enjoy looking . . . and maybe buying!

I like for jewelry to tell a story and to be able to tell a story about what I’m wearing.  That’s more important to me than a name, brand or label - Nikki Reed

 

 

I just love this quote because I love jewelry that tells a story, too.  And if you look at the jewelry in my Shadow Dog Designs handmade shop, many, many of the pieces have such interesting stories to tell.  Why buy mass produced necklaces and earrings when artisan handmade jewelry, often one of a kind pieces,has GREAT stories to tell!

Fun Halloween Earrings - Artisan Handmade

Halloween will soon be here.  In less than a week from today, the ghouls and princesses and pirates and vampires and who knows what else will arrive at the front door, trick or treating for candy.  The three pairs of earrings below are perfect to wear pre-Halloween, to Halloween parties . . . or to wear when adding that all important candy to treat bags!

Halloween and Day of the Dead / Dia de los Muertos will soon be here.  The hunt for that perfect piece of handmade jewelry to show off your fun and/or spooky side has begun.  To help with that search, I’m sharing the earrings and necklaces in my Shadow Dog Designs shop that are impeccable accessories for you pre-Halloween and Day of the Dead wear and the festivities that happen on those individual days.  All one of a kind handmade designs, I hope these (un)lucky 13 pieces of jewelry catch your eye.

Artisan Handmade for a Spooky Halloween!

 

 

Halloween - the day of trick or treaters in creepy (or cute) costumes, grinning skulls, Jack O’ Lantern pumpkins, spooky ghosts and other notorious beast - will soon be here.  But even weeks before October 31, it’s fun to wear spooky accessories or decorate the home for Halloween. With that in mind, I decided to pull together some spine-tingling jewelry and other items from handmade artists, each one perfect to help celebrate that supernatural day of the year.  I hope you enjoy these choices and will visit the shops of the talented artists featured for more amazing handmade beauties, shuddersome or not!

I love this quote by J. Donald Walters:

 

 

When you buy something handmade by a person, there is something special there, and you do feel it.  The consciousness with which the thing is made is often more important than the thing itself.

It has been several months since I last shared a blog of my newest handmade jewelry.  Between participating in art shows, traveling, my birthday, our anniversary, other commitments and trying to stock my Indiemade shop for the Christmas buying season, the time just sped right on by.  Seems time goes quicker and quicker each and every year!  Whew!  Anyway, I finally pulled together this post to share of my newest earrings and necklaces, six of each.  They are all one of a kind pieces and handmade from the heart.  If a piece catches your eye, please click on the photo or the live link below the photo to be taken to the item for more information and pictures.  I hope you enjoy the beauties below:
