Bamboo Dream Cuff

I'm going to call this my Dream Cuff because in one
split second while asleep, I saw this design flash by.
So while at our show in Gainesville, FL the next morning, I quickly sketched it out.

I threw it out there while talking to some of my customers and got a thumbs up
on the concept. So, this is where I'm at, if I can design this without being a weapon on
your arm, then it's a go...more later.

Another sculpted piece to go with the our growing 
collection of Fusion Ocean Jewelry line.  These are a little over an
inch hoop earring for pierced ears with the sculpted Starfish dots along with the
Fan Coral texture flowing together.

New Bamboo Ring

The EDGE Bamboo Ring with
sculpted bamboo leaves 

I'm not going to be shy about this ring...I love it.

I sculpted a graduated bamboo base and then added three little bamboo leaves to each section of the bamboo. The "Edge" comes from where the wide bamboo starts and the small bamboo begins. This is not a lightweight ring but I've sculpted a well made ring and I think at a great price too. You can check this out at my new Etsy Store, just click on the Etsy Store Logo.

My wife likes Dolphins...Finished!

My not so great picture of the completed Dolphins.  I'm usually trying to get them out the door so that my customers can see their new jewelry but hopefully you can see the detail.

Mike also sent me a photo of his wife wearing the dolphins on her omega. I was so pleased to see how the two dolphins layed, it was better than I me it makes an elegant statement.
Mike wrote me and told me his wife is very pleased
with the slide and wears it a lot!

This is where we get to play a bit...because I sculpted each dolphin separetely...I get to arrange them and visually show Mike some of his options for placing the dolphins before we cast them. And if your wondering which one we picked...we both picked #1

Choice #1
Choice #2
Choice #3

Their Close Up Shop
The machanicals come next...fitting these two on a
10mm Omega and still look real!

My Inspiration Photo

“playfully in love”

We met Mike in Virginia during the Neptune Show and he e-mailed me later asking for some Slider suggestion...well after a few ideas and sketches back in forth, he said, "My wife likes Dolphins".  I use to feel nervous about going out of my comfort zone but lately I've just jumped in and started sculpting, because now my real challenge is making sure that when his wife looks at her new playful dolphins, she just smiles.

So to my suprise...I can sculpt a Dolphin.

Mike's Dolphin Slider will be a one of a kind but due to my slip-up, I will be sculpting another pair
to fit a 4-6mm Omega.

Hermit Crab Necklace


Is it too creepy?

I know...I'm adorable.

This is what happens when your husband shows you an
adorable Hermit Crab with personality...

...I mean, look at this face, who could not resist
sculpting a cute little fella like this?
