Pandas and cats are both adorable, but Pandacat beats them all! ;-)
The HeatherCats to which Pandacat 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.
Pandacat is a typcial cat, but with the black and white markings of a panda bear. She sits calmly in her bamboo jungle and stares at you with her lovely green eyes.
The bamboo jungle is a mixture of beautiful greens and teals which work their way up the necklace straps. This is not random bead soup, but deliberately patterned that way to match the focal.
For the extra touch I added two bamboos in 3D brick stitch which are attached to the sides of the focal piece.
The SLN or split loom necklace is loomed from Miyuki Delica beads and finished off with silver tone ribbon crimps, chain and the cat/fish toggle clasp with cat charm that is typical for the HeatherCats.
The necklace is 60 cm or 23 1/2 inch long measured along the straps and upper edge of the focal piece.
Pandacat will be coming into the shop as a pendant as well. Should you be interested before she makes her entrance, please let me know and I'll set it up as a custom order.
The original Pandacat 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.
