Volana Kote (aka Jen Glick) is a Delaware based jewelry designer who creates gorgeous pieces incorporating naturally fallen cat whiskers. Jen has always saved her cats’ whiskers. “They bring good luck,” she says. She has also designed jewelry as long as she can remember, and one day, she started incorporating whiskers into her designs. Her gorgeous pieces range from necklaces to earrings to bracelets. She also offers keychains, cuff links and tie clips. Most pieces are available with a choice of different metals.

The gorgeous heart pendants shown above are one of Jen’s newest designs.


Jen also offers the design as rose gold plated rings.


All pieces are available in many different colors and with a choice of different metals, and they can be custom made with your cat’s whiskers.

Aren’t these hearts a very special way to always carry a piece of your cat with you?

5 Comments on Whisker Heart Jewelry from Volana Kote

  1. Jen’s pieces are works of art. Whether you buy from Etsy, at a convention/fair or you get a custom piece each one is incredibly beautiful.
    I have rings, necklaces, earrings and a new custom bracelet. I love all of them. One warning… you will get addicted like me!

  2. Every time I find a whisker, I save it. I could make an entire collection of jewelry. One day I will get something made with them.

  3. I have a cup full of whiskers from our 4 Senior kitties we’ve had since their birth. They are 13 & 14 yrs old. When I find them around the house they go in the cup lol.. My Hubby & kids think I’m nuts for saving them. Now I can have a necklace with their whiskers <3 I also have a zip lock bag full of fur so when they pass I could have a little keepsake bag made out of fur. I love my kittens like my own children. It will destroy me when they pass!! I love that there are artists that make beautiful pieces for our furbabies memory <3

    • I kept my DMH orange tabby William’s fur every time I brushed him. It’s in a baggy like you. I loved him so much I wanted a part of him to keep and I’m so glad I did. He passed away last December.
