Yorkshire Terrier - Yorkie Polymer Clay Dog Snow Globe Ornament

Here's the start of my Christmas ornaments. I have hand-sculpted my little dogs and encased them in round globes along with various bits and pieces. This one is my first, my Yorkie Christmas ornament.

There are purple, green and blue feathers behind her and the globe is sprinkled with purple glass shards along with a few flakes of "snow" at the bottom. The globe has two purple ball charms at top of the neck along with a blue bow and hangs from lavender satin cord. These little balls are so hard to photograph though because of the glare; they are much cuter in person!

Noid the Chinese Crested Polymer Clay Dog

Meet Noid, he's a sculpture I recently did. He is a Chinese Crested and his mommy wanted the sculpture to look like the caricature he's sitting on in the first photo so I tried to do a cross between the real dog and the cartoon dog.

Great Dane Leather and Lace Polymer Clay Dog Pendant

Every so often when I create something I like to get away from cute and do something a bit more dramatic. It does get a bit boring doing the same thing over and over and I love to play with other mediums such as paints and powders along with polymer clay. Here is the outcome of one of those pendants, it's my Great Dane Leather and Lace Polymer Clay Pendant. I called it this because it is the color and look of leather along with stamps which create a lace effect and pearls that give it a more feminine touch.

Cairn Terrier-The Jailbird Polymer Clay Dog Halloween Tile

This sweet little Cairn Terrier can't wait for Halloween, he loves to play dress up and loves his jailbird costume.

The tile is hand-sculpted from polymer clay. The Cairn Terrier lays on a green background. He is dressed up as a little jailbird with this black and white shirt and cap and holds a ball and chain. He is also holding his very own pumpkin basket so he can stock up on all of those tasty Halloween treats. The approximate size of the tile is 1-1/2" x 1-1/2" square and hangs from orange ribbon.

Custom Polymer Clay Dog Pendants

Here was a special request to create two pups, Sparkles and Traum. They were both awesome dogs to work with and sat very nicely while I captured their likeness. Aren't they just the cutest pups? Sparkles is the first one in pink, made for a very lucky young girl who just got the Pomeranian puppy and the other is Traum a Cardigan Corgi, the pendant was made for his mommy.
