    I foresee octo play dates...

    Haven't done any pearly bugs yet, but have definite plans, with pearls already picked out. Plump spiders, winged cicadas...this just reminds me that I have to get back to playing with wax!

    In the meantime, not sure if I already posted elsewhere, but here are a couple more aquatic pearl creatures I made recently.

    And a couple more Dresden paper creatures featuring pearls, created a few years ago before I got back into working with metal...

    This is an actual crab that found itself lodged in the extrapallial space of a mussel.

    I've always thought about having a pendant made linked together with gold eye pins.

    Dave, that is a critter's critter! I would absolutely have it made into a pendant or pin...so unusual.

    Sheri, your creations are absolutely amazing!

    Katbran, thank you...the pearl is from Jacques.

    Newberry, now that would be fun!

    sheri - the elephant with butterfly wings? I DIE! and the lion! and all of them! put me on the list for a cicada (and man, i may have to inquire about those octobabies, i LOVE LOVE LOVE them!). (but i really really love the elephant)
