Make a bold state­ment with wear­able cat hair

Modern Cat - - The Scoop -

What do you do when your cat leaves drifts of hair around your house? Turn it into ec­cen­tric jewelry, of course! It may not be the com­mon re­ac­tion to cat hair, but when Flora Davis no­ticed how soft and mal­leable her cat’s fur was, she de­cided to ex­per­i­ment. Us­ing cat hair, Flora cre­ates the soft, pearl-like balls that have be­come the hall­mark of her jewelry, sur­round­ing them in cop­per wire and metal hand­work to fash­ion unique ear­rings and neck­laces. Re­ac­tions to the jewelry vary—it’s cer­tainly a con­ver­sa­tion starter—but Flora can al­ways count on the sup­port of her num­ber one fan and co-pro­ducer, Gaia, the pure­bred flame point Raga­muf­fin whose am­ple fur in­spired the whole pro­duc­tion. Ear­rings start at $40, neck­laces $100, and can all be pur­chased from Flora's Etsy page (etsy.com/shop/flo­ra­davis). You can even send a few hand­fuls of your own cat's hair and have her cre­ate the ul­ti­mate, wear­able tribute to your cat!
