    Since so many of us are octo-moms (no, not that kind of octomom), I thought it might be fun to show off our animal/insect/living creature shaped designs done with pearls. Here is my spider pin...can't wait to see what others post! And I will add my octo when he arrives home.

    Very cool, I don't own any bugs so nothing to post here, but the pieces are all very interesting.

    My critters are both from Sheri. I also wear the hippocampus with the gold metallic strand.

    The hippocampus is made with Dresden paper. It is truly a work of art. I saw it posted on Sheri's facebook page and had a cow when I saw it. I asked her to bring it to the 2012 ruckus just to drool over it never dreaming that it could me mine. I love this piece and am thrilled to have it in my collection.
