I discovered Cherished Paws Gems through an Instagram contest and immediately fell in love with their customized bracelets. Inspired by your cats' unique characteristics and accented with glass and metal charms, each bracelet is made just for you using gemstones that match their coloring.
My only dilemma was which kitty did I want my bracelet to represent, Mudpie or Truffles? I decided to choose the bracelet design with two cat charms, one little cat face and one sitting kitty. You can also specify whether you want silver or rhinestone balls as accents, and then the real fun begins...which colors your gemstones should be! Since my bracelet symbolizes two torties (three including Tara) with very similar colors my stones are black, brown and orange.
Working with Michelle, the artist behind Cherished Paws Gems, was such a delight. She emailed a picture of the bracelet she created and there was one color gem I wasn't completely in love with, so she happily changed it for me. A cat lover herself, Cherished Paws Gems was inspired by Michelle's beloved Sammy. They found each other in 2009 when he was only a few weeks old and very sick. She nursed him back to health and in the time they spent together a strong bond was formed. After starting Sammy's Instagram page in 2014 she discovered how many people feel as passionately about their pets as she does. As Michelle says on her website, "My goal is to create a beautiful reminder of your beloved companion so that you will feel close to him or her no matter the distance between you."
As beautiful as the pictures of Michelle's creations are, in person these bracelets are even more stunning. Knowing that the one I'm wearing is an original work of art and honors the love I have for the beautiful cats in my life, both currently and in the past, makes it even more special. It's a piece of jewelry I will cherish for as long as I'm a cat mom...in other words, forever.
