Snail Jewelry Dish with Large Leaf, Ceramic dish with gold accents
Snails symbolize determination, endurance, and persistence - they are also a lovely reminder to take our time and enjoy the fast-moving world around us. This cute snail jewelry dish is one of a kind art piece - handcrafted, glazed and fired in my studio. A tiny snail sculpture sits near the imprint of a real Ligularia (leopard plant) leaf. This mischievous little snail has even taken a bite out of the leaf next to him - even the little nibble is an actual snail nibble on the real leaf.
This jewelry dish is made from smooth porcelain-like stoneware clay, dried, bisque fired, glazed, and high-fired once more at approximately 2200 degrees Fahrenheit. The ceramic dish is imprinted with an actual leaf and then handpainted with underglazes to accent the beautiful textures. The dish is then glazed and fired in the kiln. A 22kt real gold overglaze is applied and then fired a third time to bond it to the piece. The glazed finish is a glossy warm white, with beautiful natural variations found in a high fired finish.
This jewelry and incense holder is handmade from start to finish, entirely by me in my California studio, a labor of love that I hope will bring light and joy into your home.
Measurements: Approximately 5 inches wide

I love this piece because of what Deana said about it. Finding peace in her garden even though a snail might chop on her plants. Instead of noticing the hole in the leaf she finds pleasure in capturing the snail being mischievous. It’s what we should do in life. Find peace around us. I loved the message and the cute snail on the leaf it called dinner. Her dishes are beautiful and the dish will be a reminder to find peace in my life. Always a treat to open up a package from her. It is truly sent with love. So with this package I got love, peace, and beauty. What more could one ask for.
Dish is adorable! Arrived very quickly and was carefully packed in bubble wrap and a solid box.
Perfect size for dresser-top for rings, etc. Love the size, feel, colors and story this piece evokes. Beautiful and delicate craftsmanship. Thank you!
The beautiful creations I purchased from this very talented artist are SO beautiful! I dearly treasure each one. Well worth purchasing these unique, beautiful, hand-crafted items. Even more exquisite in person than the photos. And I can't part with the ones I intended to gift! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!
The pictures do not do the tray justice. So amazing. Detail of the leaf and quality of the additional details was a pleasant surprise. I felt so lucky to be able to get one. I can not wait to purchase more.
I am a repeat customer and just couldn’t get enough of Deana’s work. These beautifully made handmade ceramic dishes of hers always make me smile when I see them around the house.
Really love my new lavender jewelry dish. Looks good on my vanity and I use it to put my rings and earrings in for safe keeping.
My ladybug dish exceeds any of the videos I had watched! Superb quality and love. You can feel the care with the craftsmanship and careful glazing finish. The dish arrived quickly and was securely packed. I will definitely add to the new collection.
After missing out on this treasure a couple of times, I was match fit for the third try to purchase. It’s the most beautiful dish, so delicately crafted and hand painted with 22K gold accents. I have placed it on a shelf where it holds my precious rings while I’m cooking and the deep blue tones really pop when fingers of sunlight reach for it. I absolutely adore it 💙
Dandelions are near and dear to my heart. To have been able to purchase this was a dream and it came in time for me to use it to hold my rings while I was in surgery and couldn't wear any jewelry in. Thank you so much for sharing your visions and creations!
This tray was even more beautiful than it was when I saw it on Instagram and came so professionally wrapped I would 100% by again
I am a lover of lady bugs…. Would always miss out on new pieces from this lovely lady, but I was determined to get a Lady Bug piece no matter what. Now that I have it, it’s the best thing…. It sits be my Night stand
It was very well packed. Will surely be purchasing again.
I bought this ring dish as a treat to myself. I held off opening it until Mother’s Day and I was so excited opening it up. It is a stunning, beautiful dish and it was beautifully wrapped with a bonus heart trinket. I hope to purchase one with a ladybug or bumble bee. Thank you so much Deana!
Pleasantly surprised upon receiving my rainbow tree jewelry dish set. The set was carefully prepared for shipping, arrived on time, and in perfect condition. The craftsmanship put into this set is exquisite and simply beautiful. Will consider purchasing other items from Vuvu Ceramics again.
Hard to describe how beautiful these are! Gorgeous, whimsical, pure joy. Thank you, Vuvu Ceramics.
I received this gorgeous piece at a very difficult time, and it definitely brightened up my day. Every day since I've gotten it, I've grinned at the sweet, tiny little froggo friend I now have! More than worth the price. I will be recommending Vuvu to anyone and everyone I know ✨🐸✨
