I rarely make commissions, but when I was asked to make a cat ring a few weeks ago, I couldn't resist. 

I always had a cat when I was little. First there was Soot (black and cuddly), then Miffy (who abandoned us to become the neighborhood's wild cat), then Chiquis-Chiquis (who had purple eyes and rattled when she tried to meow). I loved their independent and contemplative nature (once they stopped being kittens!).

Now that I live in a large apartment –and before my mothering instincts make me adopt a boyfriend– I've been looking for a cat to share my space with. Until I find the right match, I have been drawing lots of felines, some of which will soon become jewelry.
