In Memory Of Shell

Meowmepurr's Mumma was the lucky winner of this gorgeous necklace, in memory of our little Shell.
We have some exciting new items to list to raise the much-needed funds to pay for all the expenses that helped try to save sweet Shell.
Look for those coming very, very soon!
Mom ML & KC

Mary Anne requested this special item be auctioned in memory of Shell.
The artist, Raven Simons, captured Shell’s true spirit using the art of Kumihimo, an ancient Japanese form of weaving decorative beads and cords. Used in ancient times for Samurai lacings and clothing, the art continues today.  She crafted this one-of-a–kind piece using the colors of the ocean and the gentle hues found within sea shells. All in celebration of the incredible courage and resilience of Shell.
The necklace is 18 inches long. The handmade glass lampwork cat bead is a pale translucent pink.  The fiber is mostly 100% cotton with a thread that is a metallic copper fiber blend. Metal is sterling silver with a freshwater pearl and a bead made of Shell. Kumihimo cord colors are cream, ivory, light Shell, and copper while the Japanese glass beads are several shades of pale peach, the lightest pink, cream, and a light sea foam green. 
Retail: $95.00
Opening bid: $45.00
