You know the moments before a cat gets ready to pounce? The concentration, the butt wiggling, the tail tip slowly moving ...
The HeatherCats to which the Lurking Cats belong 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, in this case from her Tinycat series.
The cats are lurking in the grass staring hard at the little mouse hanging from the bottom.
They loomed from Miyuki Delica beads and 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). There is no bail, the end of the pendant has been sewn up to shape a tube through which the chain is pulled.
The pendants are between 7.3 cm or 2 7/8 inch and 7.7 cm or 3 inch long including the mouse bead.
At the moment you can choose between three variations:
- White cat in the night
- Tortie cat during the day
- Black cat in the dawn (momentarily out of stock, made to order)
The original Lurking Cat is featured in the last picture. Due to the nature of bead looming the HeatherCats sometimes show little differences from the paintings.
Here I added some grass and the little mouse and changed the colors of the cat. All changes are agreed on by Heather.
