My Tabby Cat

About this design:

This piece is inspired by the Black Silver Leaf stones I purchased from Lima Beads. I named it "My Tabby Cat" because the set has the same colors in it as my cat, Ringo.


Black Silver Leaf Stones from LB, Onyx, Champagne, and Clear Faceted Bi-cone crystals from LB, Sterling Silver beads, bead caps, findings, Black Onyx round and oval beads.

    Tara, this is lovely. I like the use of different shapes of the same stone. This would also be a good match for my dog (he is a papillon).
