When Alisha was 5 or 6 she would collect and play with the “Littlest Pet Shop” menageries. She would be entertained for hours with miniature hamster habitrails or a litter of plastic kittens tucked into a plastic basket. I indulged her in many collectible sets as well as the breathing kinds of pets for her to nurture and love. Years later, with a little girl and boy of her own, Alisha is creating her own collection of whimsical animal charms.
Pictured here are her original carvings in pink and green wax. The charms and earring sets will soon be available for sale in sterling silver. Drum rolls for my talented daughter!
