Meet Sheldon and Friends

About this design:

When my oldest son was a toddler there was a show called Jack's Big Music Show that had animals that played music. He loved the show and on it, there was a squirrel named, Sheldon the Grumpy Squirrel. He was kinda rascally but oh so cute and definitely hard not to like.
I have been working on some mini animals that are perfectly sized for bracelets, here is the first mini raccoon. The others are pendants and cuffs that I have been experimenting with patterns and color. Let me know what ya think! :)

    You know how much I love all your little critters and your other pieces. I especially love the squirrel and raccoon. Have you ever made kitties and/or puppies? My granddaughter has a golden lab puppy but he’s growing fast. I’ll post a picture of Elmer one of these days.
