About this Product

If you’re from the South and bleed Purple and Gold, I’ve created a treasure that’s rare to behold.
From Lake Maurepas and Lake Ponchatrain, with skillful hands each scale is stained.
Picked from Maurepas waters, a lovely design, call it a Southern gift or a true Cajun find.
Not found on store shelves or in any boutique, I’ve created the perfect gift, that’s truly unique.

Each ornament is approximately 3 inches, and the beadwork is 2 ½ inches.  The Tiger Head spins so you can put it on the front, back, or either side of the beads.  There is a round ring at the top so you can hang it on your tree with an ornament hook.  You have the choice of two bead options.

Gar Fish Scales are extremely hard making them very unlikely to damage or break.  Every scale is different, and absorbs dye different, making each ornament truly unique and one of a kind.

If you would like just a purple and gold ornament, I can make it without the tiger head.

Please message me if you need exact measurements.

I can make this in YOUR school colors, just send me a message.

Meet the Maker

Hey Y’all!  Welcome to The Dancin Daisy! We are Lisa and MeLissa, a mother/daughter team, that believe the art of being a creator is in the details.  We don’t stay within our comfort zone and try to create something extraordinary for you to enjoy.  We feel that creation has NO LIMIT!

We live in South Louisiana and love the beautiful lakes, rivers and swamps that surround us. We love being on the water together with a fishing pole in our hands!  We also enjoy “hunting” for items we can use to create our designs.

When The Dancin Daisy started in 2019 as a hobby, we never thought our love of crafting and creating would turn into a small business.  Lisa was a paramedic/firefighter and MeLissa was an executive assistant, who each have a passion for “helping others”.  Now that we have both retired, we are creating for YOU full-time.  We are so fortunate to be able to work together side-by-side designing and creating items to make you HAPPY! 

Our creations cover a wide range of items.  We started our small business making accessories that can be used for diamond painting and cross-stitch. While we still offer those, we have now added a variety of products that will keep your home looking beautiful.  Our wreaths, table décor and creations made with oyster shells and alligator garfish scales are sure to enhance your home.  Don’t see what you want? Let us know and we will design something just for you. 

All of this would not be possible without the help of our husbands, family, friends, and our wonderful customers who support us with every order!  Thank you for helping us to make YOUR creation come to life. 

What an honor it is to be affiliated with  There is nothing more rewarding to us than helping a child in need!  So, Thank You.  Thank you all for shopping small businesses and THANK YOU for being a part of the #caringeconomy and shopping on goimagine.

We appreciate you for visiting The Dancin Daisy.  We look forward to working with you and creating something that puts a smile on your face!

How it’s Made

All oyster shells are handpicked by me and come out of the Gulf of Mexico.  The Gar Fish are caught in Lakes Ponchatrain and Maurepas in South Louisiana.

Fish are boiled from daylight until dark for 3 days to remove the scales. 

Scales and Oyster Shells are scrubbed, washed, and rinsed numerous times and sun dried between each cleaning.  They are then sanitized and sun dried.

Scales are dyed to desired color, attached to resin backing with adhesive, and sealed upon completion.  If it will be used as an ornament, beads will be strung and added.

Oyster scales will have gar fish scales attached with adhesive to form a flower.

Upon item completion, all items are sealed.


If they are made as a Salt and Pepper Set, all dyes, adhesives, and sealants will be Food Grade.
