Allow me to tell you story.

One night, in a futile attempt to sleep on a hot summer night, I saw a vision of a hair slide that was a cat, with the pin going through as the middle whisker. I groggily crawled out of bed to sketch it so I wouldn't forget, and then fell fast asleep. The next day I saw the drawing, and immediately made the prototype.

The resulting product is a large but lightweight hammered cat head outline that I first made in sterling silver and then had cast in yellow bronze and white bronze, which I then hammered and finish. It has a slight curve to it, to sit comfortably on a half twist, or whole twist up, and is slightly malleable so you can mold it against your hair. The thick hammered brass pin goes over one side of the cat, under your hair, and then up over the other side. Two small indentations keep the stick in between its whisker friends.

WHAT COULD POSSIBLY BE BETTER. A Rachel Pfeffer original- should you ever see another, it's a knock off!

This is the perfect way to show my love of cats AND keep my hair in check. I've worn it to work and gotten a lot compliments. My cats think it's pretty cool too.

This is beautiful, but if you have thin hair, it might not be for you. The cat is pretty big and needs a decent volume of hair to stay in place.
Sadly, it did not work for me, but my sister in law could not be more delighted! It is beautiful and if a smaller version ever comes out, I'll be the first in line!

Still getting the hang of putting it in my hair, so I used it for a side hair style! I think it’s super cute but I’m afraid of loosing the middle pin. I’ve gotten so many compliments on this and it’s something I wear everyday now without having to have all my hair in my face!
