I came across Shadow Dog Designs aka Catherine viaFlickr and she is now one of my contacts.
Catherine lives in Hilton Head Island, South Carolina and is a self-professed "nature geek". Nature is her muse and she only has to look at the marsh she lives on to gain inspiration for her beautiful jewellery.

Designing one-of-a-kind jewellery satisfies a strong desire in Catherine to create. She uses mainly semi~precious stones and sterling silver in her creations but also likes to use Swarovski Crystals, Czech glass and polymer clay. She has also recently started to use copper and lampwork beads.
A Rose, I Suppose
Catherine sells her work through galleries in Texas, Virginia and South Carolina and also through art shows and home shows.

Why "Shadow Dog Designs"?
Catherine says people always ask about her name! Her business was named 10 years ago to honour her two (now three) rescue dogs who shadow her everywhere and provide undying love and playfulness. Most specifically Chase, a Labrador/hound cross, who is now 15 years old and still going strong.

I think Catherine creates absolutely beautiful jewellery ~ I hope you agree!
