Three artists came together to create this pair of truly one of a kind, handmade dog rescue earrings, named PRETTY PAWS. The copper paw print in a heart charms were individually artisan made, as were the transparent pink lampwork glass beads. To complement the two pieces beautifully, copper Czech crystal rondelles and fuchsia Swarovski crystals were added. All of the components together equal an exquisite pair of earrings, perfect to gift for Valentines Day, Mothers Day or for any occasion when a thoughtful jewelry gift is needed. And, since these are part of my dog rescue jewelry collection, one half (1/2) of the purchase price will be donated to the local Humane Society. The PRETTY PAWS earrings were carefully designed and handmade by Catherine of Shadow Dog Designs for the woman who wants to show her love for her rescue dog (or cat).
Full of colorful glowing goodness, the MAGICAL necklace is well named and definitely catches the eye! The handmade necklace features a stunning artisan made, one of a kind, dichroic glass pendant with a shimmering color shift depending on the angle of the light. To complement the pendant, mint green magnesite diamonds, peach Swarovski crystals and sterling silver were used. The MAGICAL necklace was carefully designed and handmade by Catherine of Shadow Dog Designs for the woman who adores sparkling, mesmerizing pieces of unique jewelry.

Got a chill, snuggle up with this afghan! This handmade Granny Square Afghan measures approx. 48 X 48 inches. I crocheted this afghan using worsted weight, acrylic yarn, in a double crochet stitch. The main color in this Granny Square Afghan is white and the center motifs include various colors. I crocheted each square with different color yarn and but a white border around all of them. I then sewed each square together forming strips. I sewed the strips together forming the afghan. The worsted weight yarn is a firmly spun yarn and sometimes-referred to as Aran weight yarn or afghan weight yarn. The acrylic part of the yarn means it will not shrink when machine-washed and because of the easy care that makes it a great choice for items needing frequent washing. An afghan also known as blanket or throw can be in many shapes and sizes. This afghan is a granny square afghan. The basic granny square alternate sets of double crochet (a taller stitch than a single crochet stitch making the stitches and the rows bigger) stitches with chain stitches forming a square and then sewn together to form the desired piece. This afghan will make a wonderful house-warming gift. It would also be a great gift for a birthday, Mother's Day or Christmas. If you know someone in a wheelchair, this afghan would be great for him or her, to throw over their legs or wrap around their shoulders. Carry this Granny Square Afghan to football games, or other night sporting event, to throw over your legs or around your shoulders on cool nights. An afghan is not just for winter; use them as a blanket for picnics, or to throw over your shoulders in the evenings, when the night might be a little cool.
