Bruneau Jasper Squid


Here is my daughter with my newest 'squid' creation. I will get a better photo up soon - the tentacles seem to disappear into the design of her top!

The cabochon is a beautifully polished Bruneau Canyon nodule from Idaho near Mt Home. This is the king of the orbicular jaspers and is no longer available for collecting as the government is making a bird sanctuary out of the canyon. I purchased it from one of my favourite suppliers Designer Cabochons in the UK.

Also featuring a vintage 'blinking' dolls eye, bronze, acrylic, palest green amethyst briollettes, faux bone, micro screws, sterling silver, natural freshwater pearls, spinel, merino wool roving (wet felted and needle felted), mica powders and UV resin.

The whole piece is about 29cm long and can be worn as a brooch or a pendant.
