Thank you all for your wonderful comments and delightful name suggestions! A month ago Alisha posted photos of her wax carving for a new ocean themed ear cuff and ran a Facebook competition asking our fans and followers to help her name it. Dozens of excellent names poured in and for several weeks Alisha has agonized over choosing the name and ultimately the winner of her new ear cuff.
We loved so many of the names and it was hard to choose. Many were delightfully clever but Poseidon’s Gift is the winner so it is Shizuka Kohmoto who will receive the bronze version of Alisha’s ear cuff, officially named – Octopus and Starfish Ear Cuff – Poseidon’s Gift. At the shows we will refer to it simply as Poseidon’s Gift but online, because of the search engines, it will have the longer more cumbersome name.
Since posting the partially completed wax carving Alisha has worked many more hours completing the detail for Poseidon’s Gift and it will still be another five or six weeks before this ear cuff is available for sale. In the meantime, I hope that Shizuka will contact us directly to give us her shipping address. It looks like this ear cuff will be swimming all the way to Japan!
