I’ve just put the finishing touches on my custom droplet for the series 2 Launch party on the 6th February, if you’re in the Bristol area you should come down and check it out! The Droplet toy itself is very simple so it has a lot of scope for customising and I had a lot of fun making this little guy. I’ve seen a few sneaky pictures of how they’re doing up the gallery on Gav’s twitter, I’m really looking forward to meeting all the other artists and seeing how they’ve customised their Droplets.

I’m very excited to introduce my first jewellery collection! The Tentacle collection features original handmade jewellery inspired by my favorite sea dweller; the octopus. I love the texture and movement of tentacles flowing in the sea and i’ve tried to capture this in each piece. They are all hand painted with vibrant metallic and iridescent paints that shimmer and sparkle as you move. The collection is limited to 11 pieces; 3 large necklaces, 7 smaller necklaces and one pair of earrings.
Each piece is one of a kind and not to be repeated, entirely hand sculpted and totally unique – no molds were used or taken.
Edit – All pieces in the collection are sold out, thanks for everyone who bought one. To be the first to know when new pieces go on sale join the mailing list.

Pink octopus necklace
I’ve been wanting a big octopus necklace for forever, so i got busy making this little (or rather, big) guy! I sculpted him in polymer clay and then painted him with lots of fine layers of metallic paints. He’s finished with a durable glossy laquer to really bring out the depths of the paints i used. I’m working on a couple more, and some smaller items that will be avaliable in time to buy as Christmas gifts
What do you think of him? I’m thinking of making a couple more to put in the shop?
Yay Friday! Today im finishing up some custom orders and working on a new bunch of bunny brooches. The little white guy on the left is a Jellyfluff, i made him last night
Heres some pictures of one of my newest plushes. Her name is Florence (ala Florence and the Machine <3 <3 <3) she is a octogirl who never fitted in at the bottom of the sea, so she came to land to make some friends. She smokes Marlboro reds. I wanted to make another octo-girl along the lines of the one i made for the APW gallery show last Halloween (more pictures here ) but with a more jellyfish’y vibe, so i gave her lots of glittery holographic wiggly tentacles as well as her fluffy green ones.
Here is my second Octopal ‘Naughty’. She follows Nice around making weird “clack click clack” noises. Nice pretends not to care but secretly is scared to turn around They are both me testing out a new pattern i made, but i am thinking about making another so sell. For the next one i will pick two colours for each, dark for Naughty and light for Nice, as i think these ones have got a bit too much going on!
