    Beautiful piece of jewelry

    Posted by Rebecca on Feb 6th 2020

    I have a great interest in octopus. I read about them in hopes of being in the ocean with them. I have a collection of octopus that I have acquired over many years. The craftsmanship is excellent. The detail, texture and overall design is fantastic. Thank u for sharing your talents with the world. I hope to buy more pieces.

    a little too large!

    My husband liked this but it was larger in person than on the computer and we sent it back. Very great looking though.

    Exquisite Detail

    Posted by Maria on Jan 7th 2019

    Bought this as a gift for my best friends boyfriend who is a very tall lumber jack type. Was afraid this might night go around his head, but the adjustable leather cord allowed it to expand over his head, and then he could adjust it around his neck as he liked. The tea stain is beautiful, and the carving detail is impressive. Great value at this price. The packaging was also lovely. He really liked it!

    Nice carving!

    When I received this item, it came all in the same color. You could not see any white specks like the picture. I just lightly sanded the top and now it looks like the picture! Nice!

    A beautiful statement piece

    Posted by Jane on Oct 11th 2016

    I bought this for myself and named it "Inky" for the octopus that escaped from his tank, leaving poor "Blotchy" all alone. True story. I love it and the work is very detailed. It is larger than I expected.

    Beautiful Octopus

    This is a lovely carved piece. Mine varies from the picture in the placement of some of the tentacles. It gets compliments. Length of the necklace can be adjusted.
