Hairball jewlery

If you’re a cat owner, you have to accept the fact that your furniture will always be furry and your black pants will never be entirely black again — unless you have a black cat. But what if you were to turn all that cat fur into something stylish? That’s what Kate Benjamin of Moderncat did. She took cat fur and rolled it into tight balls of fur and then enlisted the help of jewelry designer Heidi Abrahamson to create hairball earrings and a matching necklace.

Pet fur jewelry just isn’t your thing? Consider turning Fido or Fluffy’s excess hair into purses, sweaters, blankets or rugs.
