If Calvin spoke French, he would say, "Merci!"

Who’s the Calvin of the handmade jewelry shop Calvin Says Merci, you may ask? Calvin is our Chesapeake Bay Retriever, a home-loving, kitten-fearing shelter dog! And why does he say “Merci”? Well, if he spoke French, it’s what he’d say to those who support his four-footed brothers and sisters in their search for a place to call home!

I’m Myra Richards, and I run this small artisan jewelry business (as well as its companion fiber art shop, to support a home-based rescue for abused dogs. Contributing at least 5% of every sale to the Petfinder Foundation and to the care of the foster dogs my husband and I take in, I help animals who were once mistreated to find loving places to live. And when you wear my handmade bead and wire jewelry, you help them, too!

After watching me indulge my hobby of taking apart my bracelets to make new ones, my husband suggested that I could start a business to support the troubled animals we both adore. Once he graciously converted his man cave into a crafting space, the first order of business was a window seat for our three pups – hence the name of my blog, “Three Dogs and a Craft Room.”

I hope you’ll find that my handmade jewelry gives a sparkle to your eye as well as flair to your outfit – each versatile jewelry piece has made life better for a pet in addition to improving your wardrobe!
