Measurements are 1 3/8" long by 1 3/4" wide

For more information about Tuttle, please email me at 

Thanks for looking!

Little Tree Frog Ring made into a Silver Band - It's so cute!

I was asked by Lori to create an adorable tree frog ring based on the story below:

Tree Frog Ring

I call my 2.5 yr old daughter my little tree frog - and I would love something to remind of how she would cling to me when she was little when she is out too late when she is 17 - (planning early here!)

Thanks so much 

This just tugged at my heart but at the same time I was so jealous I hadn't thought of this design myself. It's so adorable...only the fingers of the tree frog could pull off this cool idea. New pictures soon once cast in Sterling Silver.

David's Gift to Susan...a beautiful Cattleya Orchid Necklace.


 I have the privilege and the approval to post the Cattleya Hawaiian Wedding Song Necklace below being sculpted...

Once sculpted from wax, the necklace will be cast in solid Sterling Silver and 14k Yellow Gold. I have already decided that I have some tweaking to do on the bud placement, but that's the great thing about's a place to start.

I will be posting my wax updates here, and I hope it's will be exciting to see the piece being made, I know I get excited seeing something going from a sketch to a three dimensional necklace.

Quick Photo before casting this beautiful necklace for Susan!

Fusion Sea Fan Coral Ring with a 1.35ct Natural Rose-Cut Red Diamond

Fusion Sea Fan Coral Ring with a 1.35ct Natural Rose-Cut Red Diamond 
Well it seems I've been bitten by the Natural Diamond bandit and I love it! It's soooo me.

I've never been a huge fan of "prongs" or White Diamonds for that matter but the Natural Rose-Cut Diamonds have my name written all over it. I have a client who wanted a silver ring but wanted a white diamond in the setting, it just didn't sound right to me so I started looking around and found these beautiful natural diamonds. I purchased one for him and I purchased one for myself...and here is the wax model I sculpted around the stone. It's a 1.35ct Natural Rose Diamond, Pear shaped and RED with fire inside the stone. Band is 1/2" wide.

This ring will be displayed at the Verace's Gallery in St. John, VI

I'll try to do a quick sketch showing the details. It will be cast in Sterling Silver & 14k Yellow gold and it's a one-of-a-kind ring as well.


No price yet, I haven't weighed the piece but I'll do that asap...just wanted to show what's being made in my studio this week.
