Wishing Cat

This glass pendant is about one inch square. I found a very delicate leaf bail for this piece online.
I am finding, no pun intended that findings are hard to match a piece you create. As I sat down to cut the glass for this piece, the copper stars were right in front of me. I had a new cat punch to the left of where I was cutting glass. I find because I work so small, the foil often curls in on itself. I use a brayer to unroll them. I also found a toothpick works well to place the star andcat on the glass. The green glass is confetti.
When the pendant came out of the kiln, it seemed the cat was wishing upon the first star of the evening. The magical star which helps to make wishes come true.
