walkingOlive's Shop Announcement

SALE ON ALL PEWTER!! Now through February 29, 2016, all pewter work is offered at half price with free shipping. Use coupon code PEWTER2016 at checkout. As my artwork continues to take a winding path in its evolution and my current focus is on fiber, I thought it might be time to offer a clearing sale on the pewter pieces. Each pewter piece is half the list price AND shipping is free too! The discount is taken in the shopping cart. Order soon for best selection as some pewter pieces are almost sold out.

Welcome to my Etsy shop! I create needle felted dogs and pewter work stemming from a deep love of animals and a desire to spread happiness and fun. My work is inspired by my children, Bailey and Kirill as well as my dog Olive. I invite you to visit my website, walkingolive.com to learn more about Walking Olive.

Giving Back - Starting this year, a portion of every needle felted dog sale from this Etsy site, my Walking Olive website and from my shows will be donated to a local animal charity. Working together, through established charitable organizations, we can save the lives of animals in need. It is my hope that we can solve our pet overpopulation problem through responsible and ethical programs and practices. Animals offer limitless unconditional love. It is my privilege to return their love.

My Story - My earliest roots are embedded in fiber work, jewelry design and collage, dating back to my artist beginnings, long before children and the many twists life had to offer. I learned to knit in elementary school and have been in love with fiber ever since. I've been needle felting for 12 years and my latest obsession with dogs just enjoying life beings me much joy. About 10 years ago, I started playing with clay that was later cast in to pewter utensils. The designs are highly detailed functional art pieces. The line has expanded to include utensils, candle holders, cake toppers, drawer pulls, ornaments, and key chains.

Thank you for taking the time to browse my shop. I hope you enjoy my work.
Please visit often!
