What do you do when your cat leaves drifts of hair around your house? Turn it into eccentric jewelry, of course! It may not be the common reaction to cat hair, but when Flora Davis noticed how soft and malleable her cat’s fur was, she decided to experiment. Using cat hair, Flora creates the soft, pearl-like balls that have become the hallmark of her jewelry, surrounding them in copper wire and metal handwork to fashion unique earrings and necklaces.
Reactions to the jewelry vary—it’s certainly a conversation starter—but Flora can always count on the support of her number one fan and co-producer, Gaia, the purebred flame point Ragamuffin whose ample fur inspired the whole production. Earrings start at $40, necklaces $100, and can all be purchased from Flora’s Etsy page (etsy.com/shop/floradavis). You can even send a few handfuls of your own cat’s hair and have her create the ultimate, wearable tribute to your cat!
