This sweet necklace was created by Kristen of Mood Swing Studios. The vintage story-book image is soldered between thick glass and has a lovely vintage bead chain to hang from. I wear this necklace a lot, usually, so I will miss it for the next year. Somehow that bright red is just perfect with most of my wardrobe and the kitty makes me smile.
I bought this necklace from Kristen when my daughter, Cleo, was about 2 years old. At that time I had made very little jewelry since her birth and I just needed to buy something for myself. It was a hot spring day and Kristen was exhibiting at the Crafter’s Flea Market (now the Designer’s Downtown Market) on our street. I wandered around and then I saw her booth. I looked at the necklace and almost walked away and then Kristen said ‘did you see the back, it says Catnip!’ and flipped the pendant over.
