Kitty Cat Ring Stackable Rings

This is my latest creation:  Stackable kitty cat rings - the head and the body are on different rings and put together they make... you guessed it... the cat!!

I came up with the idea this morning and with hours I had the thing made.  I went from drawing it on paper, cutting out the body and head out of copper sheet (which I then worked and hammered), I welded the head and body to copper bands that I had previously prepared.  I finished it all off with a copper wire tail (hammered and welded into place). 

I love how the head fits over the body when you put the rings on..  This is probably the most whimsical piece I've ever done so far. 

Whenever I think of cats, it's because of my daughter in law; she is a cat lover!!!  I actually was thinking about her when I designed the rings. 

Although I made these out of copper, I will also make a set in sterling silver and copper (the bands will be sterling and the cat will be in copper).  I believe this will be awesome!! 

Here is a picture of this whimsical project of mine.  Get more info in my Etsy Shop.

Don't know how I missed this on my blog feed, Angelica :) I personally don't wear rings but find the idea of being able to separate the components is very appealing. Plus who doesn't love a cute kitty? Beautiful work!
