Owl and Pussycat Earrings

It was my mum who suggested I make these, and I had to have a go. I started them yesterday, and finished them just now.
They turned out rather whimsical, even for me :-)

I tried to base the design on the fact that owls and cats are quite similar, with their pointy ears and big round eyes... So they are actually the same apart from the mouth and tail on the cat, and wings and feet on the owl.

The cat has blue glass eyes, the owl has brown eyes - a bit hard to see as there is no sun in sight here in London today...

Owl and Pussycat earrings have been made before, by a number of people - I did a search to see people's interpretations - the captions link to the product page:

These earrings were made by Nick Hubbard

These are by Mirabilis on Folksy
These are by 'Owl and Pussycat' - also on Folksy

And now, I'm going to ignore the fact that it's raining, and go out to see if there are any ripe tomatoes in my garden...


  1. Oh I love them! You're right about them being basically the same thing.

    That reminded me of the Japanese video where the startled owl transforms to look like a cat: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U1RPNejyn8Q

  2. These are really cute, I like them!

  3. Thanks all - and Heidi, thanks for the video link - it's really funny!

  4. Love the first pair! Hope you don't mind that I feature them in my WISH LIST MONDAY meme in a week's time. I will link to you off course :)
