As summer winds down, I can’t get enough beach days in here on the East Coast. Luckily, the beach I love to kick it at the most allows dogs which only make the day better if you ask me. Therefore, this week the Etsy Herd rounds up coastal canines in honor of the dog days of Summer 2012.

Etsy seller Jill Watt of Foster City, aka TheDapperToad, makes these adorable cat charms. Jill explains that they can be worn as a necklace charm or used as a decoration or ornament.

Jill’s cat charms are handsculpted from polymer clay and then hand painted. Just like with real life cats, no two charms are the same. And, if you’d like a custom kitty charm made to look like your cat, you can commission Jill to make one.
