Poseidon’s Gift – Octopus and Starfish Ear Cuff

Alisha’s newest design, Poseidon’s Gift Ear Cuff, is available at last and it was worth waiting for!  This is only her second season designing jewelry and this piece is exquisite.  A detailed and fluid octopus, entwining seaweed, star fish and sea shell are the combined elements of this sea scape fantasy ear cuff.  The ear cuff  is 2″ long and is configured for the left ear only. It is available in both bronze and sterling silver.

Before choosing a name for this ear cuff, we ran a Facebook post giveaway to help us name the piece. We received dozens of wonderful name suggestions and it was difficult to decide but we choose “Poseidon’s Gift,”  suggested by Shizuka Kohmoto.  The bronze version of this ear cuff will fly to Shizuka in Japan this coming Friday, April 4th.

Creating this piece has been fraught with challenges.  Not only was the wax design complex and challenging to execute, but when we shipped it to our casters, it arrived broken and needed to be returned to Alisha for repair.  It came back in six pieces and was subsequently anointed with Alisha’s tears. Carefully repaired, Poseidon’s Gift made the second trip to the casters safely, was successfully cast and is now available for your ear cuff pleasure.
