mr tubular too-two

commission work, ain’t an easy thing to do

especially when iterations make you blue

this here one, was not much fun

glad i was when it got done!

the tubes of hair—too large at first

wire too thick—it made me curse!

i calmed my mind, got back to work

with head at ease, i then rework

persistence finally got me through

i’m pleased—hopefully you are too!

pom-pom cat

mr gaia is my luscious muse

i create while he dost snooze

a new creation i shalt unveil

with pom-poms of a grander scale

this choker it is not old news

i know for me it does enthuse!

whorled steel and orbs of hair so fine

a statement piece—this new design

thy love bud

a   m e m e n t o   m o r i 

thine orb of hair I wear

tis a bud of love so fair.

but O to love is wrought with pain

as summer surely turns to rain.

death brags with his eternal kiss

but speak not of thy love I miss.

hither now please take your rest

forever thy love betwixt my breasts.

Metro Cat

For weeks and weeks I fussed then cursed

My mind was trapped and at its worst

No creative thoughts were to be found

My mental state had run aground!

> * * <

I begged my kitty—help me please

I badly need your expertise!

With Thinking Turban on his nod

Designs soon flew—and none too soon!

And now, let’s see him strut his stuff

With Metro Cat he sure looks tough!

City kitties metro statement in fur and steel.  One “tough” looking cat he is.

Choker necklace. Steel, cat hair and stainless steel jump rings.

white valentine

Blue heart. Red heart. Purple heart.

My heart is WHITE and soft as snow

And he’s my love for all to know

But trapped in steel will he still glow?

Oh heart! I can not let you go.

I have a love affair with felines. This relationship, which some might call an obsession, has always been a part of me. Even when I was a baby, my little hand grabbed out, reaching for that passing feline. Why is it we love what we love anyway? I think this thing for cats is just part of my DNA!

Most cat lovers wear their cat’s hair inadvertently on their clothing. I prefer to wear mine in the form of jewelry. In honor of my love for him I made this necklace. His beautiful soft white hair is felted in the shape of a heart, then trapped between 2 pieces of wire mesh. A caged heart. We do this with those we love at times, holding tightly, not wanting them to leave.

For those who love their cats as much as I do: a made-to-order necklace, on etsy, the purrfect way to wear the hair from your precious cat. An ode to cat lovers:

Black heart. Grey heart. Orange heart.

Your heart’s COLOR may be as dark as coal

But he’s still your love for all to know

And trapped in steel I’ll have him glow

A lovely heart! And with you he will go.
