Pedigreed Pendants

Whether you own a mischievous kitty or a rambunctious pooch, every pet owner knows that life with a pet can get a bit messy, chaotic and downright hairy. But regardless of the tough stuff, the fact is, you love your pet no matter what and you're proud to show it! Starting with an enchanting idea jotted in his sketchbook, artist Mark Poulin transformed this teensy doodle into darling enamel pendants featuring your ever-loyal pet. Both sweet and a little silly (just like your cat or canine), Mark's cute characters are screen printed on hand-cut glass, kiln fired until smooth and suspended from a silver plated, solid brass chain and a leaf-accented bail (leaf viewable on back of pendants). Made in Oakland, California.

Mark Poulin

Raised in Haverhill, Massachusetts, artist Mark Poulin headed west to live in California. He soon discovered the Oakland Recreational Center, where he received his art education, and began sketching constantly. Now his simple line drawings are finding their way into his jewelry. "It looks like cute is here to stay!" he says.

"When I think a piece is finished, I let is sit for a couple of days without peeking at it, then I give it another look to see if I can take it further. But most times, I edit it down to simplify the piece...Less is more."

"Making the Zodiac 'cute' was a tough but fun project," he says. "With all those horned animals and crustacea, it took a few tries to make them sweet and contemporary." Mark is an Aquarius, the water bearer, which he interpreted as a bear sitting in a bucket of water. "Like most Aquarians, I can see the future."

Mark lives in Oakland, California and has an addiction to playing Facebook Scrabble. collection
