Angel Cat Christmas Ornament, faux Terracotta and Turquoise with Sedona Red Rock Dirt in Polymer Clay matrix

We're decorating our Christmas tree this year in a "Celebration of Sedona Arizona" theme utilizing Terracotta, Red Rock and Turquoise as the color scheme. I shared the Southwestern disk mini-scenes Christmas ornaments that are on the tree in my recent blog post, but the tree needed an angel on top. At our house that means an angel CAT. This smiling and whimsical newest addition to our Christmas ornaments fits right into the Southwestern color scheme. He's made from polymer clay with a touch of "magical" Sedona Red Rock Dirt included in the matrix. He has a golden halo and wings for a touch of holiday glitz and whiskers made from brush bristles.
Mr Southwestern Angel Cat and some of his matching Red and Green Angel Cat friends are available for sale at MelodyODesigns at Etsy

While we're on the subject of the fast approaching holidays (and  your gift list!), I'd like to remind you about my husband's book called "Life Is a Hammock". This photo-illustrated humorous Cat Book tells the stories of two traveling cats who take adventurous journeys throughout the USA while camping with their adopted parents. Written as a fundraiser for libraries and animal shelters, it is told in the first person by a very endearing cat. It makes for delightful light reading and is the perfect gift for any animal lover.  

The book can also be purchased at MelodyODesigns at ArtFire and MelodyODesigns at Etsy. Sy has made the book available on consignment at cost to Humane Societies and animal shelters around the country to use as a fund raiser. For information on this program please click on:  Life is a Hammock  and read down the right side of the home page.


  1. Perfect. An angel cat. That's what we need around here. Our tree has been without an angel for years and perhaps I need to change that situation. A cat would be perfect. I love the idea of the Sedona dust in the clay. It gives a rich color, I'm sure.

  2. I love your Sedona Theme and your beautiful angel kitty is perfect for the top of the tree. When I lived in Arizona, I loved going to Sedona. Such beauty abounds!

  3. Mr. Southwestern Angel Cat is wonderful Anita! I love his happy smile. He's perfect sitting atop the tree with all the beautiful Southwestern mini-scene ornaments. Lovely!

  4. Your angel kitty ornaments are so cute! Your Christmas tree sounds like it's going to be beautiful!

  5. Hello Melody, your jewelry is wonderful and so whimsical...just lovely.
