This pair of earrings is of a happy cat with a silver plated lead-free Pewter head, all dressed up with a sterling silver beaded collar and a round Leopardskin Jasper body. The infinite variety of patterns in black, gray, brown, pink, yellow, cream and tan of the Jasper makes for an interesting body on the cats. A fun pair of earrings for the cat lover.
