Cat Earings: How I Turned My Hobby Into Business

Published

Hello! My name is Rita and I’m a Cat Addict. Every day I need a new dose of catdrugs. I will tell my story and maybe it will save you.

I spent all of my childhood in a Russian village. There were cows, ghouls, chicken, ducks, pigs and of course cats all around. Since childhood, I spent a lot of my time talking, looking after and playing with them.

I never thought that I would devote 100% of my time to cats, but now I have three cats in my apartment and I constantly make earrings in the form of cats. How did this happen?

In 2010 I found jewelry made of polymer clay in the form of sweets on the Internet. It looked so realistic and delicious that I decided to try making something like that. It all started as a hobby, I studied in the last year at the University. But I did not have an art education, I did not know anything about technology and I had more questions than answers. I had to find a job and my parents insisted that I go to work for the government in the financial sphere.

I believed in my hobby, so I started studying techniques, ways to work with clay did experiments and tried to do something unusual and unique. At the end of 2011, I bought a dress with a zombie cat design and wanted to make myself matching earrings in the form of zombie cats. My friends really liked these earrings and I received a few orders to make cat earrings.

Since 2012, I have been focusing on the production of my cat earrings. Every day I sculpt from clay, I try different techniques and perfect my skill. I want to make the best quality, neat and beautiful earrings.

Australia Day sickies decline and save business millions

Published

on

Australian business is set to save millions of dollars this Australia Day as the public holiday falls on a Friday. 

Companies will be spared thousands of workers crafting extended breaks by bridging ‘sandwich weekends’ with sick days.

The Australian Chamber of Commerce and Industry (ACCI) predicted last year that 200,000 people would skip work the day after Australia Day, which fell on a Thursday, to have four-day weekends.

But this year it predicts no abnormalities in the amount of sick leave set to be taken around the long weekend. 

ACCI chief executive James Pearson said order will likely be restored, as the calendar automatically serves up a three-day weekend to many workers. 

‘We anticipate no greater or less use of sick leave entitlements being taken on or around Australia Day this year,’ Mr Pearson told Daily Mail Australia. 

Millions of dollars will be saved after last year’s mass sickie cost Australian business more than an estimated $62million, according to ACCI research.

Australia Day will fall on a Friday for only the fourth time in the past 24 years.  

Mr Pearson also reminded workers that sick leave shouldn’t be abused and should be treated as a privilege. 

‘It should only be used in accordance of what it is designed for, it should only be used when you are ill,’ he said. 

A survey by employment software company Tsheets found only 52 per cent of workers who take sick leave are actually ill, Cairns Post reported.
