It's no secret I'm a fan of crafting with cat hair, and it appears that the practice is well on its way to becoming a full-on trend!

Davis, who enjoys the transformation of simple, plain components into beautiful objects, primarily works in metals, but her gorgeous cat inspired her to start working with the natural, plentiful element of cat hair.
