Is there anything more mysterious than a black cat?
The HeatherCats to which the Dark Cat 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 necklace is full of color and beautiful contrast.
A black cat with striking yellow eyes is surrounded by a gorgeous mix of reds, browns and orange.
The color mix leads up the straps all way, too. This is not random bead soup, but deliberately patterned that way to match the focal.
For extra interest I added transparent dagger beads in the same colors that I used in the necklace itself.
It is loomed from Miyuki Delica beads and finished off with bronze ribbon crimps, chain and the cat/fish toggle clasp with cat charm that is typical for the HeatherCats.
The whole SLN (split loom necklace) is 60 cm or 23.5 inch long measured along the straps and upper edge of the focal piece.
The original Dark Cat 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.
