Boy, do cats love their boxes or what? Mine like to wait in a box and then jump at me. I'm not sure what this kitty is up to!
The HeatherCats to which the TinyCat in a box 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 a white "tinycat" peeking out of a box with her big green eyes. The box is standing in a room corner.
The colors are very subdued in this case, with a mix of matte and shiny beads for added interest.
While the cuff itself is loomed from Miyuki Delica beads, I extended the bottom of the box in brick stitch.
The bracelet is finished off with bronze tone ribbon crimps, chain and a fun toggle clasp with a cat head, a fish and an extra cat charm.
It is 3.5 cm or 1 1/3 inch wide and 19 cm or 7 1/2 inch long, should you need it longer, I can add some extra chain.
The original tinycat is featured in the last picture, it actually is tiny. The tinycats are a special series.
Due to the nature of bead looming the HeatherCats sometimes show little differences from the paintings. All changes are agreed on by Heather.
