Cavey plushes by Holly Stanway
You may already be familiar with Stanway’s work from her cute, hand-made Cavey plushes. She sews them in limited batches, and they quickly sell out.

Lest you think Stanway’s love for guinea pigs ends with metal and fire, rest assured she’s got a cage full of the little beasts in her home in the UK.
But I digress. The sweet Kissing Guinea Pig Rings are an original design in .925 fine silver. Each guinea pig is 11mm. (just shy of half-an-inch) long. The rings are made to order and come packaged in a pale turquoise ring box, just like Tiffany’s, but better! You can order your Kissing Guineas for £60 (or ~ $96 USD) or commission a design of your own here.
