Buddy is our lovely Yorkie. He is only 2. He loves playing with ball and sleeping on my tummy. I made this as a gift to my husband. On one side there is a engraved running puppy. On the other side, I did raised Buddy and carved a bone and a little paw.
This piece is very heavy comparing to other charm. I used almost 10 grams of silver! One of those heavy pieces I have made.

This origami box is cute and sturdy. The whole thing is folded with one piece of paper, except the brown triangle at the opening. I found a way to add a ribbon on it so it could be closed tightly and opened with ease. This would be a gift box for jewelry or other small items. It makes a great addition to your place settings to impress your guests. It's also a perfect size for tea bags for an afternoon tea party. :)

Origami is fun. I like collecting beautiful paper and it's fun to see what I could turn them into.
This little pyramid doggie box is perfect for dog-lovers. I pack my handmade silver charm in this little pyramid and gift. People always amazed at it! It's easy to open and close and can be reused! Great decoration too.
I made the little bone with Sculpey. :)

My sister has a fat cat. When he sits there resting, his fat butt looks like a turkey!! I was inspired by him and made this little cat. :) One side of this charm is this fat cat's butt. And you could personalize this charm on the other side with up to 4 letters. Instead of engraving the letters, I do raised words for a unique look.

This handcarved Chinese rubber stamp says Best Wishes. It is a little bigger than the "Blessings" stamp. Chinese calligraphy is an unique art. There are so many fonts of Chinese calligraphy! I want to carve something in another font next time!
