Kitties in Tea Cups

About this design:

I just couldn't resist....I got these charms in the mail yesterday. I thought they looked better than the bird. Besides I'm giving this bracelet and the earrings to a friend tomorrow. All my friends have tons of my jewelry...and probably don't want anymore. This bracelet is a tribute to a cat named Godzilla she had that died last year. I think she will like that idea.


Agates, blue farfalle, orange seeds, brass chain, brass toggle and a kitty in a teacup charm.

    So fun sweetjane. The little kittie in the teacup us so cute. Is it sitting in milk?

    When your friend wears the set, she will always think fondly of Godzilla–it is so hard to lose our dearly loved pets. The charm is precious. Beady, maybe he knocked a cup of creamed coffee over and is thinking about licking it up!

    Both this and the other one are so vibrant and that cat charm is a perfect match.

    Lucky friends! I’m sure they will get a big kick out of this adorable kitty peeking out of the teacup and the charming earrings.

    The kittie set is so adorable. It reminds me of a white kittie I had some years ago that if I forgot to put the lid on my slowcooker after I washed it and put it on the counter, he would climb into it and sleep. He also liked to sleep in bathroom sinks.

    PS: How did your cat get the name “Godzilla?” Or I should ask… why?

    This bright piece is too cute! I saw some of these cat charms on-line and thought they were cute but what would I do with them. I like what you did with one! Now, I also saw bunnies, too.
