Itsy Bitsy Specimen JarsI've been busy working on new ideas for jewelry lately, including casting transparent Glass Squid in resin. While I was creating the first one I made videos of the process from sculpt to molding to casting. The first three Glass Squid necklaces should be available in the shop...

A man with a tape recorder up his nose-- Wait, that's not right.I've been working on a project lately, just for fun really, and now it's ready to share.
