Beautiful jewelry, ornaments and bookmarks at great deals + friends + gift certificate = FUN!


Aren’t they cute?

Aren't they cute?

Again, these were hand-shaped. I pressed the Swarovski crystal cabochons in there pretty good! I used a toothpick to design the nose, and the tip to create the mouth.

The reason they’re matte is that these weren’t baked yet or glazed. Still pretty cool! 🙂

Kitty Cat Swarovski Crystal Charms

Kitty Cat Swarovski Crystal Charms

I have officially “fallen over” with how popular these little guys have been. Aren’t they cute???

And before you ask, yes, I made them by hand! 🙂 No machines, nothing. Just my fingers and a brush for the glaze. Oh! And a knife for the whiskers. 😉
