Glorious Octopus Earrings

These earrings are designed to be the poisonous Blue Ringed Octopus from Australia. I always love making something that is both beautiful and dangerous.

The stones are emeralds and even more beautiful then they look in the photo.


They are sterling silver and emeralds (obviously) with black pearls. Length is about 2". From the collection of Bayla Fine.

I just had cast two designs in gold and they came out beautifully. After all the work the waxes take I always hold my breath a bit until they are cast successfully.

I'm working on some new designs in bronze, very different from much of my work, that I'm hoping to have finished for Wiscon.

Think I'll go back to work now.
