In 2018, I was visiting my friend and neighbor Joanna Ballard on Thanksgiving Day and we had a surprise visitor: a tiny fuzzy orange kitten who had been abandoned. We managed to catch him and she has now become his pet Mom. We don’t know what happened to Jin Jin or where he came from–but even today he is still very shy around people and is terrified of going outside.

I tweeted this video as a reply to the New Orleans Saint’s twitter when they asked us to tweet out what we are grateful for.

 

 

Today, Jin Jin has grown and is my first customer who has his own lovely gemstone pendant. The stone is a dyed blue quartz geode that sparkles just like he does. This particular line will be made with these geodes because I have plenty and they are affordable they are safe yet sturdy.

 

 


 

They also have holes drilled into them which enables me to make a simple design that shows off the gem, while at the same time being safe for pets. I also attach a small keychain to the bail (where the cord goes through if it were for a human) so the pet owner can simply attach it to their furbaby.

I made them small because I wanted to keep in mind safety. Many pets have tags (dog tags) and of course, as a wire artist, I made sure there are no sharp ends or jagged edges that could get caught.

 

If you would like one for your furbaby, I am selling them for $25. Also note, there is free worldwide shipping on orders over $100 on everything in my store and for all custom orders.
