American artist Merry Rosenfield has been hand making animal jewelry since 1989. Merry first began selling her polymer clay animal jewelry in Northern California. Since that time she has expanded her line to nearly 2,000 different designs in pewter, sterling silver, bronze, enamel and 14K gold.
"I have a purpose as an artist, and that is to create animal jewelry that celebrates the bond you have for both your companion animals and (quite possibly) for the wild animals that share this planet with us.
To me, animals themselves are beautiful beings. They increase the very quality of our lives. They may share our couch, or hover outside at our windows sipping from hummingbird feeders. They may trot beside us on a woodland trail or, in the case of our wild friends, may dash away as soon as they spot us from behind a rock.
We share our planet and our home with so many species. And my small contribution is to honor that connection and that bond with the jewelry I create. May you enjoy wearing it or passing it on to someone you love."
