"Close to my heart"

These are so lovingly created, knew they had to be inspired by real cats. Very happy with these cats, I wear them often. I truly like every piece I have purchased from this lovely couple-a very creative pair.

"Our friend loves them!"

We got these for our young friend with whom we re-homed our gorgeous black cat who could not get along with our other cats. She (and the cat) love them and immediately packed them to take on her European Christmas trip.

"My beloved black cat Onyx Cuddles"

I lost my black cat Onyx Cuddles recently. These earrings touch my heart. They are beautiful and great quality. It will be hard to take them off. Thank you for a keepsake I will always treasure. I have found more items I will purchase. Thank you again. Backorder no problem. Well worth the short wait.

"Love This Bracelet"

Very happy with this bracelet and it has become one of my favorites. Goes on easy, well made with a very simple, lightweight design and love the jade cross. Looks great on my wrist.
