The big cats have always intrigued me - they are so beautiful! As an adolescent I liked to copy (draw) pictures of them. I always had to get the spots and stripes exact!
Nowadays, I am always a sucker for animal prints - especially leopard, jaguar, tiger and cheetah. I have a couple of animal print coats, animal print skirts, and a bunch of animal print fabric.
Some of my fellow "Smooshers" have taken inspiration from the beautiful big cats and have created some wonderful beads and jewelry!

Tiger stripe beads from Clay It Again.
Make your own! For starters, I'm thinking the square beads would make cute earrings. . . Did I mention, you can never have too many earrings?
