Jen is simply amazing. You can really tell that she is passionate about her art (each piece is a beautiful work of art). My necklace is not only special because it holds the whiskers of my Lucy and Gandalf, but because of the love and care imbued by Jen.

Volana was so easy to work with - thoughtful, responsive, and a timely turnaround. I’m so grateful I’m able to remember my foster kitten Cooper with such a beautiful piece of jewelry.

I have been admiring your work for quite a while, and knew that when the time came, I would for sure get one of your pieces to memorialize my cat Porkchop.
Well just got my piece just the other day and have to admit that I was so nervous to open it, because I thought I was going to be an emotional sad mess.
But instead of sadness, I was overcome with such joy! This piece came out so beautiful and perfect that it just plastered the biggest smile on my face and I could not be happier!
The crown detail on this is so perfect and it’s nice and delicate, which is perfect because I want to be able to wear this every day and with any outfit.
It was a seamless transaction from the start. And i got it back quite fast. 5 stars across the board.
I can’t thank you enough!

I could say a million kind things not only about the stunning keychain and ring, but also for how wonderful and kind Volana was throughout this whole process. The pieces are very high quality and whiskers were placed so thoughtfully! I messed up my shipping address on my end, and also switched ring styles last minute and both of those hiccups Volana was just so kind and made everything work out. We’ll always miss our girl but having a piece of her with us is something I’ll never be able to thank Volana enough for!💕

I am amazed at this beautiful piece of jewelry with my precious fur baby's ashes carefully added to the heart. I will treasure it always.

This is the second jewellery piece I've ordered and she continues to exceed my expectations! I sent photos of my cat Penelope's eyes in order to create a custom colour and it turned out so beautiful! She is so wonderful to work with and answered any questions I had. Thank you!

This is my second purchase from Volana and I couldn't be happier. Fortunately my kitties are alive and well, but I loved the design of the pendant. She customized it for me, allowing me to choose the resin color. I get many compliments on the pendant as well as the necklace. Truly a great job. Well done and thanks once again!

Got this as a memorial for our sweet kittycat, to give to my daughter who chose him at the shelter. It's beautiful and well-made.
I've been a collector and creator forever. My penchant for little found natural objects stems from childhood and my collections run deep. From catalogued sea shells, bones, coral and feathers, to whiskers, hair and teeth, I have this deep seeded yearning to compile and assemble all things little and pretty. If you asked 8 year old me what my favorites things were, I'd say 'kittens and jewelry'. Today at 42 years of age, the answer is still the same!
I've created Volana Kote, which means 'moon kitten', to share this love of animals and jewelry. All pieces are unique which makes creating them so special. And each piece is made under the watchful eye of my four feline rescues whose glorious whiskers inspired these pieces.
Send us your whiskers and we'll make you the ultimate wearable tribute honoring your own four footed friend.
Hello and thank you for stopping by! My name is Jen and I adore animals. I have an incomprehensible obsession with jewelry and am constantly in search of the most perfect piece. Next to my kittens, making and creating brings me the most joy.

Frequently asked questions
How do I get MY pet's whisker to you?
My whisker mailing address is provided after check out. An automated email receipt will be sent with my shipping information and I'll notify you upon their safe arrival!
Can I send hair or fur?
Yes, I can make custom keepsakes out of hair or fur. Please keep in mind that visibility varies depending on color and thickness. A contrasting bezel background color helps with better visibility as well.
How many whiskers do I need to send?
Each of my listings notes a recommended number of whiskers to send. Each setting requires a different number depending on the setting size. (If you're short a whisker or two, no worries! Most settings look amazing even with 1 whisker!) ^..^
How long does it take to make a whisker jewel?
I can create most personalized whisker keepsakes within 7-10 days of whisker receipt. (Notification will be sent upon whisker arrival as well as jewel completion with insured shipping.) Items requiring more work time have notations in their product descriptions.
Can I hand deliver my whiskers to you?
Yes, you can! I attend several events throughout the year that are listed in my 'Shop Announcements'. If you're local to any of these event, please feel free to pop by!
Can you make keepsakes with ashes?
Yes, I can, and would be honored. Most settings only require about 1 teaspoon and you can also add a background color. Feel free to message me with any concerns.
