I have been wanting to make my sister a surprise present... because it's fun to randomly send presents in the mail. :)
Thing the Second
Said sister loves cephalopods. Squid, cuttlefish, octopi (octopuses? octopodes?)... They make her smile.
Thing the Third
I was randomly derping along on the internet, and I found that Beadaholique now has octopus cameos.
...You can see where this is going.
|Only the finest octopus cameo for the discerning cephalopod connoisseur.|
Yep--I snagged one and made it into a pendant.
Well, technically, I first made it into a pendant, and then used that pendant in a necklace... I just don't have the pictures of the final piece uploaded to my computer yet.
So, stay tuned! I will be sure to post pictures of the final piece soon.
Because making presents is fun!
...And even more fun is making presents that are just perfectly tuned to a person's taste... and then completely surprising them by giving them that present and having it be something that they needed but didn't know existed. :)
Anyway, thanks for letting me share... Hope everyone is having a lovely day!
