"Beautiful detailed art for my neck"

I really love this pendant. The carving is so very detailed and it is scientifically accurate as well, which I really appreciate. It is thick and sturdy so I have no worries that it could get broken.

"Nice carving!"

When I received this item, it came all in the same color. You could not see any white specks like the picture. I just lightly sanded the top and now it looks like the picture! Nice!

"Beautiful Octopus"

This is a lovely carved piece. Mine varies from the picture in the placement of some of the tentacles. It gets compliments. Length of the necklace can be adjusted.

"A beautiful statement piece"

I bought this for myself and named it "Inky" for the octopus that escaped from his tank, leaving poor "Blotchy" all alone. True story. I love it and the work is very detailed. It is larger than I expected.

"Beautiful piece of jewelry"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I have a great interest in octopus. I read about them in hopes of being in the ocean with them. I have a collection of octopus that I have acquired over many years. The craftsmanship is excellent. The detail, texture and overall design is fantastic. Thank u for sharing your talents with the world. I hope to buy more pieces.

"Very Pretty!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I m loving these. I will note that you see the moon on one side, silver anchoring on back. Depending on how your ears are pierced or naturally angled, they may lay differently than expected. Medium-weight. Very striking when worn with hair up, I ve had many compliments on them already!

"My favorite"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

Easily one of my favorite bracelets. The moon is a good medium size. You can t go wrong with this one! Links are soddered for durability, also so it won t catch as easy on delicate fabrics. Moon doesn t flip on my wrist with normal wear, stays in place. As always, I m very impressed with his work.

"Love them!"

Beautiful, highly-detailed handcrafted earrings! I havent seen anything like them before. I love the mysterious combination of Dark Bone, Garnet and silver. Id say they are a good medium-size earring, yet are still very light-weight. Get them if youve been pondering them.
