Mooky the Cat

About this design:

I wanted to make a necklace for a little girl who loves cats. I think the Patricia Healy cat is whimsical and fun and would look great with some little mookite stones.


Healy cat, copper wire, mookite stones.

    I think that it is purr-fect! Mookaite is such a cool stone, and does mix nicely with the PH pendant.

    It is such a happy piece and reminds me of my cat, Topaz Bojangles, who I found as a stray in my backyard.

    Who doesn’t love the little animals and I am sure there are lots of adult cat lovers. PH made such a wonderful piece, I just embellished it.

    The cat of course is supercute, but what caught my eye was your headpins! Never seen quite that solution before — so neat and stylish, and practical to make! Have to copy that someday, with colored wire that can’t be melted…:-)

    Adorable, and I love the way the elements come together! =^___^= Anyone should be happy to get such an awesome necklace!

    DayLily aka Del says:

    Monica, I curl the wire ends from a spool. It saves on buying headpins. One day, I am going to buy a torch and make the ball ends like Asia. But the curly ends did go with the wire curls in the PH focal.
