An elegant necklace made from tubes and orbs of cat hair.
This past May, while I was laided up, recovering from a foot operation, a second design, based on Mr Tubular, a necklace I created previously, began percolating. It rolled around in my mind for days, actually weeks, before beginning the process of rolling then forming the hair into tubes. That was the easy part. Wire wrapping those elongated shapes, with brass, was a pain and I almost gave up! But I persevered instead.
Gaia is such a gracious model. Not only did he pose for me with the necklace around his neck, holding still for many shots until I got the right one, but allowed me use of his wide back for an overall view of this piece.
And the final necklace: just cat hair and brass wire.
