I wish I could be as relaxed as this sleeping cat!
The HeatherCats to which Petcat 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 pendant shows Petcat, one of Heather's original stamp designs, but without the petting hand. Petcat is sleeping, from her happy smile I gather she's having a good dream, too!
For added interest Petcat is not loomed like a portrait on a canvas, but shaped with only a little bit of background for the tube that serves as a bail.
The pendant which is 6.7 cm or 2 2/3 inch long is loomed from Miyuki Delica beads. It will come on a silver tone ball chain of 60 cm or 23 1/2 inch length (which can be made shorter to the length you prefer). The end of the pendant is sewn up to shape a tube through which the chain is pulled.
Even though there is only the white variation available at the moment, I can make Petcat in different colors, black or white like in the pictures, but of course also other colors, maybe even those of your own cat?
There is also a Petcat bracelet in the shop.
Proceeds for this pendant goes in full to Animal Rescue Network New Zealand!
The original Petcat 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.
