Years ago I made a ring like this, not quite the same, but close, a giant hunk of tigereye set in silver with secret cat eyes hidden on the back of the handmade bezel. It was the year of the tiger… I could not resist. I’ll never forget that particular adoption, it was purchased in memory of a beloved tiger cat by an etsy member who had recently parted with a dear friend of 21 years, it’s new owner related: “I love that you made the ring in celebration of the tiger. My little two-tone was small, but had the personality of a tiger…devoted, confident, solitary, passionate and proud.”
This year when St. Hubert’s reached out, a ring based on that story seemed the appropriate donation. I sure hope it will embody that same spirit, and will go to a good home. All to the benefit of a few other orphans in the process.
Good luck St. Hubert’s!
