Featured Studio: ShadowDogDesigns

This week the Ajdjss Guild is featuring "ShadowDogDesigns" aka Catherine.

ShadowDogDesigns is one of our Jewelry Design studios that showcases unique "one of a kind" handmade jewelry for the discriminating woman.
When visiting ShadowDogDesigns you will find designs made with semi-precious beads and stones, polymer clay pieces, sterling silver, Czech glass, Swarovski crystals, lampwork beads, and copper.

Catherine was bitten by the jewelry making bug about 11 years ago and has been selling at shows, home shows, galleries, and on line since then.

Nature is Catherines's muse--actually she says that she is a "self-professed" nature geek and really loves to create with nature's stones and metals.

Btw, the avatar above is not a picture of Catherine--it is of her lab/hound rescued dog that "shadows" her--because of her love for this dog 2 other rescued dogs she has named her shop and business to honor them.

Let's take some time now to look at the nature inspired creations showcased in "ShadowDogDesigns".
