2009 was the year. Gaia was not even a year old.
I combed that Ragamuffin’s beautiful hair one day in 2009 and was left with a hand full of the most soft and silky hair. Could not throw it away. Rolled it into a ball. Threw it to him and a new toy was in production. Many many many ball later, now we are talking about 2010, I got the idea to work them into a necklace for myself. I wore that one at an art event that fall. Everyone was amazed that the pearl-like puffs of hair were made from cat fur.
Here he is wearing that first necklace I made with his fur.
