A friend of mine found these and posted them to my Facebook Wall. I was just tickled pink with these incredible creations, and knew I had to share with PG!

Aren't these amazing?!

Not all of the pearls are genuine, cultured pearls but that's ok - the finished galleons are just really cool IMHO. To see more pictures and get the artist's story visit: http://www.boredpanda.com/wing-wo-wave-white-cloud-city-ann-carrington/

My pleasure, really! ;)

They reminded me a lot of the pearl sculptures Hokichi Mikimoto used to have done to display at the World's Fairs when he was alive. Haven't seen anything similar since.

I need one of those to wear on my head the next time I dress in 18th century costume!
