Aby Cat Crystal and Gemstone Kilt Pin
A petite Abyssinian cat photo on a snow quartz gemstones dangles between two Tigerskin Jasper hearts on this kilt pin. The photo is repeated on the reverse side. Use photo selection buttons to see your choices of a Fawn colored Aby, Ruddy Aby or Sorrel on puffed teardrop shaped bead. If you're not familiar with a kilt pin it was originally designed to pin a kilt (or wrap skirt) shut. Now this pin has risen to a whole new level with dangling crystals and stones and can be worn across the collar, shawl, cape, shirt pocket, hat band, purse strap . . . let your imagination set the limits.
The Snow Quartz gemstone is hand-cut and best described as looking like frozen ice with swirls ranging from opaque to translucent. The tigerskin jasper heart gemstones are very unusual. Some look almost like wood. Like all gemstones no two are ever exactly the same and the image shows the wide range in appearance they can have. If you like exact matches and symmetry this pin may not be for you.
Amber and jet Czech crystals are above the hearts and below the center stone is a brown cat's eye bead with crystals and chocolate pearls. Beads accent the cat's fur colors. The gemstones are approximately 18mm (3/4") across. Photo will be aprx. 5/8" around. The pin is gold plated steel with 3 loops and is 3 1/4 inches wide, the longest dangle being about 2 inches.
