This little beastie was fun to make! The ring base is Faux Bone - shaped into something resembling (I think) vertebrae/bone bits and coloured with brown shoe polish. I also riveted some sterling silver tube through it as I liked the contrast - and I love riveting.
The sea anemone top part is made from merino wool roving - wet felted with some green silk bits thrown in.
I'm the cephalopod loving redhead behind Ginga Squid studio. In previous lives I've been an engineer, accountant, scuba instructor and most recently - a mum to 2 gorgeous little kiddies (well they are most of the time)!
I love creating things - it keeps me sane. I particularly love sourcing interesting, unusual and rare natural gemstones and fossils (its my equivalent of a shoe addiction).
I also love colour - bring it on!
I like to use beads in my work that I can buy Fair Trade from developing countries, so helping the craftspeople directly.
