Mondkatze 12: Akiko by Talty Mondkatze 12: Akiko by Talty

| Etsy | Custom Commissions | Facebook | YouTube | Polymer Clay Gallery |



This was a commission for ~Kizzarina after her cat Akiko, a beautiful calico. Sadly Akiko passed away so she asked me to add little angel wings to her, since Akiko means autumn in Japanese I proposed making the wings gold like falling leaves. They are quite shiny in real life, I hope I could show that in the photos :heart: She also asked me to sculpt her in this signature playful position. I decided to add a ruler to show the real size of these pendants, people always tell me that they are a lot smaller than they originally thought, so there you can see that they are about 3 cm or a bit over an inch long. The Moon was made with my opal technique, which I really love and I think that it makes the pendant look softer and kinda angelical. I have a tutorial for the opal effect here: [link]

As some of you already know I love animals, and lately I've been looking for a local no-kill shelter to volunteer and donate to. I think I finally found one that is doing a great job to help animals in need, I only need to contact them directly and make sure that they are devoted to the welfare of animals. I want to start raising funds, so from now on all the profits I make from Mondkatze and Mondhund (minus shipping and materials) will be saved and donated to my local no-kill and no-profit shelter, I will give more information about the shelter once I confirm that they are what I'm looking for. I think that this is a great chance for us animal lovers, you can get a customized piece of your pets AND donate to animals in need :meow: if anyone is interested contact me! Edit: ~Outtoclay is also having a jewelry sale to benefit her local cat shelter, more info here: [link]

Previous Mondhund and Mondkatze:



Would you like to commission a Mondkatze or a Mondhund?


I'm accepting commissions for this, I can customize the moon with any combination of colors you want, or make it flat instead of textured, round, shiny, anything! If you send me reference photos I will also make an exact miniature copy of your own cat, dog or any cat/dog you want. You can read my commission info here and my pricelist here. 100% of the profits (minus shipping and materials) will be donated to a local non-kill and non-profit shelter yet to be decided.



My boyfriend and I have made up tons of cute stories about us living in the Moon and creating our ideal world. Since we both love cats and identify a lot with them, eventually the term "Mondkatze" (Mooncat) surged - it's in German because we both study German and we like to speak in German between us to practice. This one is called "Mondhund" instead because it's a dog :D

Hey those are beautiful and I agree with your project -I am currently having a sale of my jewelry with benefits giving to my local cat shelter you can check it out here [link].
I was wondering what material is the crescent moon made of (stone, polymer clay?).
I love the story behind the names of the pendant :)
Take care :wave:

Oh thank you so much for doing this. I have added your fb page to mine and featured you on it. I haven't advertised about my sale on da but as soon as it's done I will include you in. Maybe that would be a great idea for a group so if someone wants to buy handmade goodies and help a good cause it's all in the one place....:idea:
Food for thoughts!!
Take care :wave:

I think this is my favorite one so far. Yes, that is a lot smaller than I originally thought, but I think the smaller size is better.
