It's said everyone has a black sheep in the family.
In my family there's a thief, not an ordinary, but a master thief. Nothing is safe from him. He started out on ordinary stuff, like paper from the waste basket, then added bread and soup and other edibles, worked his way up to wire spools, pens and crochet hooks, but for quite a while now he has become determined to go for the really good stuff - jewelry.
Let me present my very own cat burglar, the purring black sheep of the family - Ponder Stibbons, also known as Pon, Stibber, Ponpon, Mr. Ponsonby and countless other names, some not as flattering as others - here in his very own getaway car.
Today I discussed his priorities with him and he picked out some pieces to go on his list.
Ponder likes hoops a lot and he went for these gorgeous Amethyst and silver hoop earrings by Shiny Adornments right away. I agree, that deep purple goes great with the antiqued silver.
My cat burglar wouldn't be a cat if he didn't love everything dangly. It was a tough choice, but how could he have resisted these copper and olive jade earrings from the studio of MC Stoneworks?!
One of Pon's first loves in jewelry were bracelets. The lovely mix of raku lampwork beads and sparkling Swarovski in this one by Nicole Valentine Studio caught his connoisseur's eye immediately.
Know what? Even if you don't have your own cat burglar, because of allergy or because you live in a small apartment on the 45th floor or maybe because you are a dog person, you can still own these beautiful pieces. Isn't that great?
Hop over and have a look. There's more, I'm sure you won't regret it.
P.S. Don't you think the furry guy has excellent taste? ;-)
