About the Artist: American artist Kay Fazio has been creating beautiful cat jewelry in 14kt gold and sterling silver since 1999. Her very first piece was a Bengal cat pendant for herself to honor “Sterling”, her own Bengal. Kay is passionate about her cats, and knowledgeable about the features of breeds. In her jewelry, you’ll not only see those details, but hints at that breed’s personality. The details are exquisite, with each hair of the coat in place. The cats’ captivating facial expressions will capture your heart!
About This Breed: The rare Sphynx’s most distinguishing feature is that it has no traditional coat. In actuality, it does have a velvety “vellus hair” covering, but no fur for warmth. Because of this, they tend to enjoy cuddling with their people. The Sphinx’s lack of coat and wrinkly skin, combined with their enormous ears, wedge-shaped heads, and little pot bellies, give them a distinctive look indeed! The Mexican-origin breed was near extinction in the 1800s before being revived and popularized in the late 1900s using hairless cats from Canada and Minnesota. Standards for the Sphynx differ between cat associations. But as anyone who’s lived with one knows, these extremely outgoing cats are energetic, curious, and intelligent.
