Dog Rescue Handmade Earrings, Polymer Clay Crystals Joyful Artisan Dangle Jewelry
There is nothing like the joy you feel when your best four-footed dog friend sees you, runs to you to greet you and wants to smother you with dog kisses. Such an ecstatic dog is featured in the JOYFUL DOG handmade earrings design! Lightweight but durable, the dog rescue earrings feature artisan polymer clay discs that were individually artisan create. The beads were created with mustard gold polymer clay discs, the running dog with ears flying imprinted onto the front of each disc. A silver mica powder coating was added to bring out the imprinted detail and to add a warm glow. The dog discs were sealed with a glaze for a smooth shiny surface and for a waterproof finish. The polymer clay beads were carefully wire wrapped onto sterling silver wire.
To complement the mustard gold detailing of the unique earrings and to add a great amount of sparkle, two sizes of faceted Swarovski crystal bicones were added above the dog beads. The color is called “light Colorado topaz,” a warm light brown hue. Sterling silver 2 mm beads separate the Swarovski crystals and were added above and below the glittering beads. The earrings were finished with sterling silver French hook earwires. Created for the woman who loves her dog(s), especially if a rescue, the JOYFUL DOG earrings were carefully designed and handmade by Catherine of Shadow Dog Designs.
*** Please note: since the JOYFUL DOG earrings are part of my dog rescue jewelry line, when sold, one half (½) of the purchase price will be donated to the local Humane Society where we adopted our rescue dog, the handsome, joyous Seamus.

Dogs are a symbol of loyalty, friendship and unconditional love. Although man made, crystal (glass) is said to carry the energies of transformation, rebirth and communication. Silver is a metal of love and healing; it is believed to be a mirror to the soul, helping us to see ourselves as others see us.
The JOYFUL DOG dog rescue 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!
