Handmade Jewelry by Shadow Dog Designs - New Earrings and Necklaces



It has been almost a month since I last sat down to share my newest batch of handmade earrings and necklaces.  Visiting friends in Long Beach, California and Charleston, South Carolina took up a lot of time, along with shorter trips to Dallas.  Plus, three big shows are in the not too distant future, all in April, so I’ve been very busy trying to make new jewelry to freshen up the look.  Lots of spring inspired jewelry has been photographed - hopefully, those will make it into the next post.

New Jewelry Designs by Shadow Dog Designs, Necklaces and Earrings



It has been three weeks since the last blog share of the new handmade earrings and necklaces in my Shadow Dog Designs jewelry shop.  I have been extremely busy making new pieces with the resulting product photography, photo editing and listing the new pieces . . . with MUCH more to come.  Shared below are the nine new pieces listed since my last “new” blog.  Also two “oldies but goodies” necklace are included, two of my favorites.  

Valentines Day at Shadow Dog Designs - Handmade Jewelry



Since Valentine’s Day is quickly approaching, I decided to share some handmade Valentine’s inspired jewelry from my Shadow Dog Designs studio.  Most are red and/or pink in color - but not all - and some have hearts.  But most are not your “traditional” Valentine’s earrings or necklaces; they are more geared for the woman who loves unique designs with a boho falir.  The one of a kind pieces can be comfortably worn long after this year’s Valentine’s Day is past.  But what a perfect gift any of the handmade jewelry featured below will make . . . long after the day itself is a fond memory!  

Handmade Earrings and Necklaces, New Designs from Shadow Dog Designs



I have been really busy making and listing new earrings and necklaces these last two weeks, mostly earrings, it seems.  Have been enthralled with two new artists I have found and buy jewelry components from.  One creates pieces from recycled tea or cookie tins.  The pieces are whimsical and very light in weight.  Another creates amazing polymer clay pieces, some with a technique called embroidered polymer clay - very intricate and time consuming.  I have one pair of earrings from each artist in the beauties shared below.  There are seven new creations; the last three are wonderful oldies but goodies to round out the number to an even ten.

Shadow Dog Designs - New Handmade Jewelry



The past two weeks have been very busy . . . not so much with making new jewelry and listing new pieces . . . but with life itself.  It seems I find myself coming and going at the same time.  Thank heavens for yoga classes and the bits and pieces of meditation I can do.  They definitely help center my life, to look at what life throws my way with empathy, caring and a sense of humor (or at least I hope!).  

Shadow Dog Designs - New Handmade Necklace and Earrings Gift Ideas




Fortunately the Muses have finally come back from an extended vacation (just in time) and I have been busy creating quite a few new necklaces and pairs of earrings.  Many designs have a definite boho flair and some are supremely elegant.  With the spring arts festival season quickly approaching, my handmade jewelry stock definitely needs to be replenished.  There will be many more new jewelry listings in the coming weeks.

First We Dream - Wonderful Handmade Wednesday on Indiemade



One of my favorite sayings is from Carl Sandburg:  “Nothing happens unless first we dream.”  I don’t know about the other artists that are included in this post, but I often dream about a design, especially one I am trying to figure out, whether it be a color combination or a new wire wrap technique.  Maybe “dream” is not exactly the right word, but a design can come to me in that state between wakefulness and sleep where my mind comes up with all sorts of weird stuff.  


Anyway, the handmade items in this post are the first ones listed (at least at the time this was posted) in the shops of the Indiemade artists featured here.  Most are one of a kind items . . . and all are a “dream” to have.  Enjoy.

Boho Inspired Handmade Necklaces and Earrings, New from Shadow Dog Designs


Despite being gone quite a bit - and dealing with roofers, AC repairmen and painters once I got back - LOTS of new boho inspired handmade necklaces and earrings have been added into my Indiemade shop.  Each are one of a kind; most I could not reproduce exactly even if my life depended on it!  Many of the necklaces and earrings below use components from other artist friends in the design.  That truly makes the designs unique!  If something catches your eye, please click on the live link below the photograph to see more pictures and information.  Enjoy!

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.
