Shadow Dog Designs is feature in this week blog

30 June 2011

If you want unique, handmade, one-of-a-kind jewels,this is the place

Catherine love to  work with stones and creating beautiful pieces of jewelry that will last a life-time and, hopefully, be passed on to the next generation.

The jewelry making bug bit her about 11 years ago and she has been selling at shows, home shows and through galleries since then. Finally, a Shadow Dog Designs ArtFire shop is now open!
Also you can find Catherine work  through galleries in Virginia, Texas and South Carolina, through art shows, home shows, Etsy, Facebook and Flickr.

Experiencing a life long love affair with Nature, Catherine is able to satisfy her strong desire to create by designing one-of-a-kind jewelry mainly using semi-precious stones and sterling or fine silver, but also polymer clay, Czech glass, Swarovski crystals, and, more recently, copper and lampwork beads.
Catherine is inspired by just  looking out over the marsh where she is privilege to live.

An where the name  Shadow Dog Designs come from... It was named 10 years ago to honor her 2 (now 3) rescue dogs who "shadow" Catherine everywhere and give her undying love, support and playfulness. Most specifically lovely Chase, a lab/hound X, who is now a grand 15-years-old and still going strong.
Also you can see MESA  has her Avatar in her shop and Facebook page.

Really nice blog, as usual, Elaine. How nice to learn so much about Catherine. I was wondering where that name came from. Wonderful choices to represent her work. She always has such quality stones and interesting focals. (as usual, I am signing in as anonymous because it will never work with my wordpress name, but this is Strega/Lee)
