If you're looking for a lovely, unusual, and unique gift you've come to the right shop! I've bought everything from Chris' beautiful necklaces, perfect size spoon rests, lovely pottery Christmas trees and Christmas ornaments, pretty platters, bowls, and plates, unique mugs with perfect handles for your hand, and now her lovely and charming little angels. I bought the 3" size and I will be buying more! They are treasures! I usually buy for gifts but have a hard time giving up Chris' works of art! They are of the highest quality and you'll enjoy the exquisite colors. I will be buying more! I get as much pleasure giving her things as the people receiving them as gifts! Try this darling shop - you won't be disappointed!

This necklace is absolutely beautiful. It was a gift and the recipient loved it. It's beautifully crafted and painted. Also, Christine at YaakValleyCeramics could not be more helpful and responsive. I highly recommend this shop! Thank you for everything!

I love to create with clay!

In 2011, I retired from Indiana to beautiful Northwestern Montana. When my husband and I built our house in the wilderness, we decided to make a studio for pottery. We have been enjoying the wonderful privilege of having our very own studio, right in our house!
I have been making pottery for 11 years. We make enough for both a bisque and a glaze kiln about once a month. I usually work in batches of 6 to 8 pieces and work between 3 - 5 hours a day when I am not gardening, quilting, or just looking at the beautiful scenery.
Every piece of pottery that I make is unique. There is no hurry, and I don't try to produce vast quantities of work. After all, I'm retired! When I sit down to make something, I think, "This may become someone's favorite necklace or mug or vase." So I try to make each and every one special. I hope that you think my pottery is special, too.

Frequently asked questions

Gift wrapping and packaging

Let me know when you make an order if your purchase is a gift. I will be glad to wrap it and enclose a gift card for you.

Custom and personalized orders

Custom and personalized orders can take about 4 weeks, depending on where I am in the kiln cycle. Custom and personalized orders are not returnable.

Sizing details

I try to choose necklaces that enhance the color or features of each pendant. If you have specific needs, is possible to change the necklace that comes with pendants. For example, it is sometimes easier for older hands to close different types of clasps, or maybe you have a larger body type and would like a longer necklace. All of my necklaces can be removed from the pendants, so you may also use a necklace that you already own.
