Street Cat Designs are made of only the finest quality materials.
No silver plated brass, no gold plated silver. I use only Sterling
Silver and 14K gold fill. Plated metals are not regulated as to how
much precious metal has to be used, whereas gold fill is. There is
1000 times more gold in gold fill than in gold plate. Your gold fill
piece will last a lifetime, the gold will not wear through and can
be cleaned as often as needed.
I use AAA Gem quality semi precious and precious stones. I have
also started using Swarovski Crystals and fine quality Cubic
The majority of my components are hand formed using only wire
wrapping and forming techniques. From earwires, posts, and gem
linked chains, to chandelier earrings, pendant frames and filigree,
I form, hammer and wrap for hours to create little pieces of
My designs are all my own, with inspiration coming from nature,
art, classic textile design, current and vintage fashion, and quite
often, the jumble of gems and metals on my work space.
My classic pieces, like my knitted cuffs, crocheted earrings,
cluster earrings and pearl mosaic cuff will stand the test of time
