Dog Face Ceramic Earrings, Lampwork Happy Dogs Handmade Jewelry Gift

Item Description

You can’t help but to smile when you see these unique HAPPY DOG earrings!  The one of a kind beauties, a perfect gift for a dog lover, features artisan made ceramic dog face discs, artisan lampwork glass beads and copper.  The ceramic discs were individually handmade from white ceramic clay and kiln fired twice for strength and durability. The design is so very whimsical:  a textured, raised puppy dog face with a happy smile. The glaze is a high shine peach color (hard to photograph due to reflections) and brings out the dog faces perfectly since some glaze settled in the more recessed areas.  The back of the discs are also glazed in peach. Because the discs were individually created, they are very similar but not exactly the same. The earrings are lightweight to wear.
Artisan lampwork beads were stacked above the dog face discs to perfectly complement them.  The lampwork beads were made from borosilicate glass (a glass that is stronger than everyday glass) and feature a base glass of speckled medium greenish gray.  Wrapped around the middle of the beads is a band of glass in a rich brick red color, a lovely counterpoint to the peach glaze of the dog discs. A 3 mm copper bead was nestled into the top of each lampwork bead.  Two copper bicones were then added for glowing copper beauty. The earrings are finished with sterling silver French hook earwires with copper bead accents. Carefully designed and handmade by Catherine of Shadow Dog Designs, the HAPPY DOG earrings are a wonderful gift for the dog lover who loves unique, meaningful artisan jewelry.

Dogs are a symbol of loyalty, friendship and unconditional love. Ceramic is believed to be very transformative. Even though man made, glass is said to carry the energies of transformation, rebirth and communication.  Copper is believed to allow the wearer to recognize barriers in the path of personal development. Silver is a metal of love and healing; it is a mirror to the soul, helping us to see ourselves as others see us.


The HAPPY DOG handmade earrings were carefully designed and handmade in a dog friendly, smoke free studio. They will be carefully packed in an organza jewelry bag with tissue, perfect for gift giving to a loved one . . . or to yourself!
