This was made for the love of Sweetie – our lovely neighbour’s putty cat, Sweetie. Sweetie recently went off to the great beyond and is much missed by her beloved owner, Melisse & Bob. So this is my dedication to Sweetie.
I started with a photo of Sweetie cat.
Selected an area and applied some filters via GIMP. (Filters > Edge-Detect > Sobel).
Decided on one I liked. Set image to correct print size to fit glass cab. Print.
Then just worked beaded bezel using a clear glass cab. Seedbeads are Czech and Miyuki beads. Surrounded by Swarovski duo-coloured Alexandrite crystals. (Discontinued colour). A gold filled chain. And off it goes, with love, to our lovely Melisse in memory of her Sweetie cat.
