New Artisan Handmade Jewelry at Shadow Dog Designs

 

 

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.

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!

Unique New Handmade Jewelry from Shadow Dog Designs

 

The past several weeks have been very busy with a huge (and very profitable) show on Labor Day weekend and then a week long trip to beautiful Couer d'Alene, Idaho and Spokane, Washington.  But unique new handmade jewelry, mostly necklaces and earrings, have been listed in my Indiemade shop.  All of the jewelry is one of a kind, except the very last pair of earrings, the snowmen earrings.  Even though I make them in several different colored collars, the red ones are the most popular.

Modern Symbols that are Ancient - Wonderful Handmade Wednesday on Indiemade - May 25, 2016

Even though we live in modern times, ancient symbols are found everywhere.  Many people do not even recognize them as being ancient.  Think of spirals, the Zia symbol on the New Mexico flag, the Hamsa, the cross, flowers and many other symbols in their various forms . . . all ancient but still in use today.
