Maneki Neko Lucky Cat Earrings. Cobalt Blue Glass Beads. 925 Sterling Silver Ear-wire Option


Maneki-Neko Lucky Cat Earrings with Cobalt Blue Czech Fire Polished Faceted Glass Beads and Tibetan Silver Bead Caps, rosary link hand wrapped in silver plated wire. Beautiful vivid cobalt blue glass beads and cute beckoning/waving cats. The cats come to me a very new looking shiny silver but I hand paint/patinate them with a black wax to give them a well loved vintage look. The back is as lovely as the front (see second photo), the cat wears a cute bow.

✩Size (all measurements are approximate)✩
6cm (2.4 inches) from top of ear-wire to bottom.

✩The Maneki-Neko ("beckoning cat") Mythology, Legends, Lore and History✩
Is a common Japanese figurine (lucky charm/talisman), it is usually made of ceramic. It is believed to bring good luck to the owner. The figurine depicts a cat (traditionally a calico Japanese Bobtail) beckoning with an upright paw, holding a coin in the other and is usually displayed in shops, restaurants and other businesses. Some of the sculptures are electric or battery-powered and have a slow-moving paw beckoning. The Maneki-Neko is sometimes also called the welcoming cat, lucky cat, money cat, happy cat, beckoning cat, or fortune cat in English.

These earrings come with a silver plated very secure lever back findings (as pictured) which are suitable for regular pierced ears.
But can be replaced (free of charge) with:
*large kidney wires, which are suitable for wearing though gauged metal or silicone tunnels, or simply if you prefer a longer earring (this will add approximately 3cm to the overall length).

For a small extra charge, I can replace the current ear-wires with:
*non-pierced/clip-on findings
*Solid 925 Sterling Silver ear-wires, in either a "fish/shepherds hook" style.
*Titanium is physiologically inert and thus hypo-allergenic. For this reason, Titanium is found in many internal medical devices. Titanium’s natural colour is a silvery grey. It can can also be electrically heated and anodised, resulting in a wide array of colours using a process known as reactive metal anodising, which is useful in making jewellery. Titanium is strong, lightweight and highly bio-compatible. Anodising creates a thin oxide layer which is just as bio-compatible as polished titanium. There are no other materials added and there is no plating or painting. Titanium is an excellent choice for anyone with sensitive skin, especially for those allergic to nickel, or the metals used in making 925 Sterling Silver or 9ct Gold.

Please choose the ear finding from the drop down menu.

Your purchase will come gift wrapped in a lovely organza bag, acid free coloured/patterned tissue paper (colour+patterns may vary depending on season/item) and a sturdy outer packing mini corrugated cardboard box, ready to give as a loving gift to someone special or for a treat for yourself.
If you have any special requests, please ask.

✩The hand photo✩
Meet Mephisto the measuring hand, he will help show you the rough scale of the jewellery. The hand is exactly the same size as my own hand (I’m an average UK ladies size 7 glove).
