I started fashioning an octopus today and so far, I am pleased with the prototype results.


My friend Captain Richard Rodriguez contacted me about a recent photo I posted of the Duck Ring that recently came off my bench.  “WOW” was the subject line, and then the request – what about an Octo?

Richard is a Captain with Vessel Assist our of the San Juan Islands and maintains a wonderful blog, Bitterendblog.

Here’s to you Captain RR….my endeavor to craft you your own Octopod ring….Size 9.  My initial sketches:

I love wide rings. A recent article in Artjewelry inspired me to take a stab at a wide band ring made from sheet rather than flat wire. My first attempt was a learning curve, my second attempt (shown here) is better. My next try will be in 18g silver sheet.

I was asked to make a sterling silver locket for a young girl who recently celebrated her Bat Mitzvah.

The piece was finished and delivered today- I polished this locket to such a shine you could have put lipstick on with it!
