This kind of caterpillar is welcome to invade my garden anytime!
The HeatherCats to which Caterpillar belongs are a collaboration of my friend Heather Russell, an artist from New Zealand, and me, Cat from Cat's Wire - hence the name HeatherCats.
It's an exclusive series of jewelry designed and bead loomed after Heather's original cat paintings which are both colorful and whimsical.
This cuff shows Caterpillar, the Cat-erpillar, on his favorite leaf. He's bright yellow and orange and has green eyes.
His leaf which is big enough for him to sit and walk on it comfortably is from a stunning combination of shimmering greens that is even more beautiful in person. There's part of another leaf peaking out of one edge.
The background is a lovely mix of purples.
Part of his back and an antenna are loomed as extensions for added interest.
The bracelet is bead loomed from Miyuki Delica beads. It is finished off with silver tone ribbon crimps, chain and a fun toggle clasp with a cat head, a fish and an extra cat charm.
It is 19 cm or 7 1/2 inch long, should you need it longer, I can add some extra chain.
I can make this bracelet in different color variations and size.
The original painting is featured in the last picture. Due to the nature of bead looming the HeatherCats sometimes show little differences from the paintings. All changes are agreed on by Heather.
