"Mr C", cat art by Claudia Sanchez, is featured on this exquisite Mother of Pearl shell pendant necklace. Dye is infused into the shell surface, creating a rich, iridescent effect. Each shell piece is slightly different, making each pendant an individual wearable piece of art. Pendant measures 1.56 square and comes with a black rubber cord (3mm), 18 long with a sterling silver lobster clasp. You may upgrade to a Sterling Silver Wheat Chain (2.5mm), 18 long with sterling silver lobster clasp for an additional fee.
Please Note: No two pieces of Mother of Pearl are shaped identically. Some pieces may have one or more slightly rounded corners and may not be perfectly symmetrical. You may also see and feel variations on the shell, on either side. This is normal. Be assured that each shell is hand-picked, and we will not use any shell that we believe is defective in any way.
About the art: Mr. C lived in Razzleberries Fine Gifts located in LeClaire, IA from 2007 to 2020. He was brought to owner, Mary Chambers, by a family in Fulton, IL as a "stray" and was told he would make the perfect "shop cat". They called him Mr. Cat, and it seemed appropriate to keep the name, Mr. C. He was mostly Maine Coon, a gengle giant, who loved every customer. He greeted all the visitors and he allowed them to pet him, brush him, and occasionally sat in their laps if they found a chair to sit on. He never climbed up on shelves or ledges. He never scratched or harmed merchandise. He cooperated for so many "photo shoots". He was beautiful, handsome, sweet, adorable, and so many came back to the shop to see him time after time.
