May Etsyblogger Featured Artist - NanjoDogz

Jack Russell Terrier
If you like dogs and enjoy art, then I have a blog for you.  The featured Etsyblogger for the month of May is NanjoDogz.  I've forgotten now where I first met Nancy, on Etsy or Entrecard.  Her polymer clay dogs are just so neat.  She sells the doggie beads by themselves, but usually gives an example on her shop of what they will look like, when put on a strand.  They are just adorable.
The beads are stamped on the back with a small paw print.  Cute touch.  They have a silver metal core, that makes it easy to thread on your strand.  Some of the doggies are part of a charm, like this Maltese and Boston Terrier.

When I sell necklaces and beads, I like to use something in the photo where people can relate to its size.  I see Nancy does this too.  Here's a King Charles Spaniel, resting on a quarter.

Nancy also draws dogs.  Here's a favorite of mine, a Boston Terrier on a polymer clay frame.

 Nancy's blog is called Nanjo Dogz, same as her Etsy shop.  She also has a shop on Artfire and eCrater.  A percentage of her Etsy proceeds goes to animal charities, such as HSUS, Anti-Cruelty Society and the Illinois Doberman Rescue.  If you're interested in a bead for a specific breed, she will be happy to create a piece just for you.  Check out her Etsy Profile at http://www.etsy.com/people/nanjodogz

Dogs happen to be my favorite animal. The looks on the faces of these is perfect.
