Boho Grunge Cat Lover Earrings, Metallic Polymer Clay Handmade Jewelry

Item Description

If you or someone you know loves cats, then these fun boho grunge HERE KITTY KITTY handmade earrings are a perfect jewelry gift!  The lightweight, one of a kind earrings feature artisan created polymer clay cat charms, sparkling orange Swarovski crystals and copper.  The design on the cat charms were individually drawn freehand on polymer clay: a sweet kitty outline with great whiskers. As you can see, since they were drawn freehand, the kitties are very similar but not exactly the same.  Acrylic pigments, colored pencils and iron oxide were applied in layers to build up the glorious shades of metallic browns with more than a hint of bronze-y orange. A layer of crystal protectant was then applied to keep the colors fresh looking for years to come.  The backside is also finished and signed by the artist. Because the cat dangles were formed from polymer clay, even though the earrings are on the larger side, they are very lightweight to wear.   
 
Since the cat charms are so eye catching, something simple was needed to complement the colors of the dangles.  Faceted Swarovski crystal bicones were chosen in a rich orange red color called “Indian red.” They add huge sparkle to the earrings.  Copper wire was used to add a unique wire twist to the crystals from the bottom to the top. Sterling silver French hook earwires with copper bead accents perfectly finish the earrings.  Carefully designed and handmade by Catherine of Shadow Dog Designs, the HERE KITTY KITTY earrings were created for the woman who loves a boho look to her unique cat jewelry!

Cats represent patience and independence.  Even though man made, crystals (glass) carry the energies of transformation, rebirth and communication.  Copper is said to allow the wearer to recognize barriers in the path of personal development. Silver is a metal of love and healing; it is a mirror to the soul, helping us to see ourselves as others see us.  

 

The HERE KITTY KITTY artisan earrings were carefully designed and handmade in a dog friendly, smoke free studio. They will be carefully packed in an organza jewelry bag with tissue, perfect for gift giving to a loved one . . . or to yourself!
