It all started with a trip to Bathsheba Beach, Kristina and her husband wanted to get some fresh air and find a place to relax. Staring at the Atlantic Ocean waves rolling in, the scene at Bathsheba Beach was breathtaking. To think that the company Cat on Rock Kristina’s Jewels was all started from a circumstance that occurred during this trip.
Seated on a rock in the distance, just beyond what this couple thought was reachable, was a black kitten. This abandoned kitten looked scared and the formation of this rock was too rigid to climb. Kristina and her husband returned the next day with milk from their hotel and used an empty coconut shell to lure this kitty down. While the kitten was saved from this rigid rock, the couple was unable to bring the abandoned kitty back to the hotel. After their vacation, and visiting this little kitten every day at the shelter, Kristina and her husband brought the kitten home with them to America.
Who knew that this little story of a lost kitten among the waves of the Atlantic Ocean bringing in loads of trash left behind from tourists would inspire Cat on a Rock Kristina’s Jewels to turn one man’s trash into another man’s treasures. Kristina makes jewelry from the discarded glass found along the ocean waves and in turn has made it her mission to use these jewels and the story of Rocky the abandoned kitty as a means to remind us to take care of our Earth. There are so many treasures humans take for granted, among them are our ocean’s waters.
While Cat on Rock Kristina’s Jewels offers a wide range of recycled Sea glass jewelry, I wanted to feature this Pink Peony ring that is listed for sale at $24.95. Made with 100% recycled sea glass a silver plated ring with a twisted band wrapped in German style wire, the Pink Peony would make the perfect gift for someone you love.
