So I'm a cat fanatic and ended up making all these cat related jewelry! Because this is only my second post since joining this wonderful community, you'll have to visit the links to see what I'm talking about ^_^
This piece was inspired by an artwork by Japanese modern artist Yoshitomo Nara. I tried to reproduce the drawing on a bottle cap, but it turned out to be an original work since it's so unrecognizable haha. The materials used are just various fabrics I bought and shredded to create this design. The lace part has bolts and fake pearls. Overall I think it turned out very punkish and I like it a lot.
This cat brooch is somewhat simple and made out of leather, part of a zipper, light pink chiffon-like fabric, chains, and studs. Simple, yet edgy ^_^
This cat-shaped brooch was inspired from too many drinking nights haha! It's made out of black leather, a Sapporo beer bottle cap, a blue plastic rose bead, and chains. I've made it into a brooch, but it can be worn as a pendant.
This one was made for a friend as a farewell present. He loves Happy Tree Friends so I added a picture there and glued it in between pieces of plastic for durability. The cat itself is made out of blue fabric and bordered with zippers. The ears are yellow flannel and small buttons, the eyes are crocheted with a small green button on it or lined with brown lace and the happy tree friend picture. The chain is just to give it an edgy feel and connects to the zipper going along the outside border.
This hair band turned out to be the favorite of my friends from when I showed them my initial design sketches. It's quite simple and made entirely out of three zippers of varying colors and styles. I've added the big black button, tiny buttons and zipper fastener to give it a bit more variety.
Broach made out of 3 fabric yo-yos, zipper, lace, shift key and cat button.
