Very nice. I never thought of steampunk and the deep sea going together, but I like the way it looks.

This is bloody beautiful! Amazing! These are one of those pieces you just take a glance, that's you need, and you already know it is undoubtedly awesome. When I get old enough, I promise I will purchase something from your Etsy. I hope you'll still be working about 5 years from now!!

I hope I will be too! I don't like working normal jobs so I need to keep paying my bills with the jewelry and sculpture.

That's the way you should be doing it! Do what you like, rather than doing it purposelessly :heart:

These are fabulous. Any plans for adding some of the extinct species?

Not at the moment. I'm going to be doing some more of these but without the budget constraints of a commission, a squid, octopus, nautilus, and cuttlefish. Once I'm done those maybe I'll expand into some of the extinct cephalopods.

Of course I'm out of town for the first time I'm featured as a Daily Deviation. Wonderful surprise to come home to! Feeling a bit silly that I had a typo in the title the whole time (fixed now).

The nautilus is too cute for its own good... actually, all three of them are. Congrats on a very well-earned DD!
