Hello, long time no see!
July is already coming to an end.
Half of 2016 is gone and it really feels like we are rushing to December.
Hopefully, the next half year would be more productive for you and me.
Meanwhile, here are 3 pairs of studs that I actually get done a while back.
See you soon.
By now, you must be very bored with my cat earrings postings.
Before I bore you some more, here is a bit about the city I live in - Kuching
Kuching City is in the State of Sarawak, Malaysia.
Kuching is a Malay word for Cat, therefore Kuching City is Cat City, literally translated.
There are many theories as to the origin of the City. You can read them here.
Not all are related to cats though.
You must be thinking that we have many cats roaming the city to be called a Cat City.
Not really, but you can find other types of cat all over the city such as this one here.
These green cats are found at a traffic light junction.
There must be over twenty of them watching over the traffic :)
We also have a muzium dedicated to cats - the Kuching Cat Museum.
Don't expect to find live cats here though.
Check out the above link or just google for Kuching Cat Museum to get an idea.
I am still not done with wire wrapped cat earrings.
Hope I am not booooring you with all the kitties:)
This time around, only the head with tiny body.
If you don't know yet, I work almost exclusively with stainless steel wire.
This is 20 gauge round wire.
They are flattened with lots of hammering.
Still with cat.
This time around a wire wrapped cat pendant.
Or maybe a key chain.
Did a bit of wire weaving for the tail with copper jewelry wire.
The body is a heart shaped Rose Quartz accented with a 4mm stainless steel spacer beads.
A wire wrapped cat stud earrings made in a whim.
Not difficult to wire wrap these little kitties.
Lots of hammering to harden the body and head though.
Inspiration from my dear old cats from a long long time ago, our neighbor's cats as well as the many inspirations from the world wide web.
If dogs are man's best friend...then
Cats are woman's best friend!!
Wire Wrapped Donut Pendant Tutorial is retired from my Etsy and Artfire shops.
One of my oldest tutorials.
It’s now available for download (FREE) at my Craftsy Shop, only.
It’s not available at Etsy as there will be relisting fee involves.
Artfire does not have instant download service, so it is not there too.
Where have all the days gone?
Just blink and almost end of 2nd week of March.
Been wanting to post this earrings since the last post.
Remember the post about my failure.
That was last month but feels like it was only yesterday.
OK, this is the outcome of that many tries.
Not very satisfied but not so badlah.
