Red Cat Run

This giveaway is now closed with 135 comments. Thanks to all who entered. Congratulations to the lucky winner ~ Brynna!

I have a musician in the family. I'm sure some of you do too. I found the most beautiful guitar pick from Red Cat Run. It's made from fully recycled sterling silver scraps and is hand cut and shaped smooth. The artist melts the scraps and pours the molten silver into a sheet mold which is then quenched and put through various degrees of reduction in the rolling mill to make sheet silver. Whew, sounds like a lot of meticulous work. It's a gorgeous piece and will be treasured.

Red Cat Run also creates sterling silver and gold rings that are absolutely lovely. I love the simplicity of this shop. All of their products are hand crafted to perfection. These are all original designs by the artist, Jenna. She is scientist trained and spent many years in industry worldwide. She enjoys applying her creativity along with her scientific roots to create new designs and ideas.

You will love what Red Cat Run has to offer. I was very pleased with the pick I received and am thoroughly impressed by her work.

Red Cat Run would like to offer one lucky reader a sterling silver guitar pick! She would also like to extend a discount of 20% OFF with the code: redmonkey.

  50. They can make your jewelry in a variety of colors--white, yellow, rose or green AND out of sterling silver or gold in the karat weight of your choice--10k, 14k or 18k. That is really making things custom.
