Thank SO MUCH to gorgeous JCK Magazine editor Jennifer Heebner, who was working on a story about earring jackets when she discovered that my FitzRoy-the-cat earring jackets and birthstone studs were actually the start of a whole FitzRoy collection. She did a separate story about Fitz and his 18K-gold jewelry!
I’ve already posted the FitzRoy jackets with January’s birthstone, garnet, but I just photographed the ear climbers with six more birthstones. (Five to go!) Jennifer chose the citrine studs — November’s birthstone — for her story.
I’ll have the amethyst (February), aquamarine (March), emerald (May), ruby (July), and tourmaline (October) versions up on my website this weekend. The rest of the birthstones will be coming soon.
Jennifer didn’t limit herself to jewelry photos for her story: She included pictures of FitzRoy himself, meaning he’s now a true supermeowdel. One of those is Fitz’s famous “escape leg” picture, which — as of this moment — has 68,926 notes on Tumblr.
I described my FitzRoy pendant design to Jennifer for the story and now I’m awfully tempted to share a photo the wax model, but I’m going to be strong and save it until the necklace is done. (The FitzRoy ring will have the same look as the pendant.) In the meantime, you can read about how FitzRoy inspired a line of jewelry by reading the story on JCK.
