This little guy was for repair, the UK(( seller didn't ship abroad... he was kind enough to enable me to bid, and solved the problem with Ebay about the process! Thanks Dave :-)

Kyratisation: half seed pearls from my "in case of" box, some glue because of approximate matching size, find a turquoise in the same box and set it in the prongs. :-D

Did you notice the little cruel red eyes?

Length of whole brooch: 4cm (1.5/8")
Length of the beetle: 2.7cm (1.1/8")

Last pic is one of last Charlie's pic, at my in laws during Christmas hollydays... we had to take him with us to be able to give him his medication twice a day, so he traveled 800 kms by car with us... and the rascals twins!

    I love your Charlie. I have a Charlie too but he is a dog:)
    Your cat looks like the cat I had when I was a kid.

    Aww, Freiheit! Charlie was nearly a dog... Ran at the door when hearing the bell, carried his toy with him, came when called his name (even when asking where is the cat!)...

    Mani very happy to see you here! Thank you for your lovely comment! (Technically he isn't a Bzz Bzz... He crawls... A Crrip Crrap?) ;-))) XOXO

    Thank you Beyemvey for your so early love!

    As always kyra, beautiful job, I love the look of the turquoise with this! It really pops. And look at the dilation of Charlie's eyes!!! Cool!

    Charlie poupie! Il est tellement chou qu'on en oublierait presque la broche, mais elle est magnifique elle aussi.
  13. Gillian, 9 months ago
    I thought at first this was two pieces. It's another in the amazing line of Kyratised jewelery. How do you manage with a piece so small. Amazing - truly.

    A beautiful picture of Charlie, he was beautiful too! I can't imagine how you're feeling, a great loss for you.

    Sue, thanks! Full truth in the name cats eye ;-)

    Scott, thank you for your always kind comment!
    For sure, I'll hug who I can catch ;-)

    Merci !

    Gillian, thank you for your compliment and interest :-) happily I still have a good eye and hand for precision, lol!
    Thank you too for your kind words for Charlie...

    Wow you have done an amazing job with the brooch. Charlie was obviously well loved x
  19. Nicefice, 9 months ago
    Cool beetle brooch! I especially love Charlie. I also own a Mackerel Tabby with the striped pattern. His name is Tim. He looks just like Charlie. I like the pattern above their nose that looks like an "M" for Mackerel. :)
  20. kyratango kyratango, 9 months ago
    Judy, Marga, Wandlessfairy, thank you for all your compliments and warm comments! Love back to you :-)

    Nicefice, thanks for your cool comment ;-))
    And for the significance of the M, I thought it stood for "Meowww"...! Love back to you and your stripped friend Tim!
