a little disappointedAugust 24, 2013
I have several of the Russian beads and they are spectacular in their beauty and detail. This one misses the mark for me because the cat has almost no face. It actually looks like the picture with a dark oval on the middle of the head, but the face lacks any features. I, at least, expected to see beautiful eyes. But no. No features. The rest of the image is nice but I hoped to be raving. I bought this on a great sale, which is my consolation prize.

When asked to use this bead in a necklace for a friend, I jumped at the chance! The painting is amazing and actually looks just like her Siamese. I used a Bali head pin and some matching beads with a Swarovski bicone in topaz.
After wearing a few times, she returned it to me to find a way to keep it from spinning. She said it was often turned around to the back and couldn't I find a way to stop that? After much trial and error, the soloution was to knot some Elasticity on the head pin and hide that inside the pendant. Also, switched head pins to a heavier guage with just the beads instead of the lighter Bali pin. It doesn't spin freely now.
