Cat Earrings: How I Turned My Hobby Into Business


Hello! My epithet is Rita and I’m a Cat Addict. Every day I need a new dosage of catdrugs. I will tell my tale and maybe it will save you.

I invested all of my childhood in a Russian village. There were kine, ghouls, chicken, ducks, animals and of course cats all around. Since childhood, I invested a lot of my day talking, looking after and playing with them.

I never thought that I would dedicate 100% of my time to felines, but now I have three felines in my apartment and I constantly make earrings in the form of cats. How did this happen?

In 2010 I found jewelry made of polymer clay in the form of sweets on the Internet. It looked so realistic and delicious that I decided to try inducing something like that. It all started as a pastime, I studied in the past year at the University. But I did not have an art education, I did not know anything about technology and I had more topics than answers. I had to find a job and my mothers insisted that I go to work for the governmental forces in the financial sphere.

I believed in my hobby, so I started studying techniques, ways to work with clay did experiments and tried to do something unusual and unique. At the end of 2011, I bought a dress with a zombie feline design and wanted to make myself matching earrings in the form of zombie cats. My pals really liked these earrings and I received a few orders to construct feline earrings.

Since 2012, I have been focusing on the production of my cat earrings. Every day I sculpt from clay, I try different techniques and perfect my skill. I want to make the best quality, neat and beautiful earrings.
