I'm so very pleased to have completed the art and to be able to offer ID CARDS! So every pair comes ready to gift on an ID card, in a sweet little jewelry box, tucked into a reusable coral print organza bag! Rock your love for all that is slug and mighty with these tiny, glow in the dark resin Sea slugs!

Opalescent nudibranchs (Hermissenda crassicornis) are one of the first nudibranchs pacific northwestern divers learn to identify! And this magical set not only catches attention in wonderfully vivid whits and orange, when the lights go out they put on a second show, glowing in the dark! Found throughout Pacific waters, their white tipped, bright orange cerata elegantly dance in the cool waters as they scavenge for their food. Ranging in size from a a few cm to several inches, these wonderful little guys are a joy to observe! With a rainbow twist, these playful take on a classic diver favorite are absolutely adorable!


These amazing little guys make wonderful presents for the scuba divers, ocean lovers and mermaids in your life!

Since these are handmade, no two will be the same! Please allow for some color and variations in your unique little octopus studs! Each little octopus is about an inch!

The fasted to ship of these are Titanium, since they were set for live shows and I have a few premade sets ready to go!
Titanium is - 100% nickle free and excellently safe for sensitive skin, zero nickle content. About Titanium - Titanium alloys are inert and do not contain nickel or cobalt, which most people with more sensitive skin are allergic to. Titanium is the most hypoallergenic material known to man, and is rapidly replacing other surgical implants (prosthetic implants such as hip, shoulder, and jaw) and surgical instruments (scalpels, hemostats and tweezers), since the body does not react to it.

Sterling Silver - sterling silver posts and ear backs.

Clip ons - a silver finished brass clip on that flips closed on the back side! You can adjust the fit by adjusting the U bar.


Much of my work - from clay to clothing - centers around marvellous creatures known as Nudibranchs, a type of sea slug that inspires divers worldwide. There are over 3,000 different species of Nudibranchs, and handfuls of new species are being described every year. Nudibranch literally means naked gills, which can be found either on their backs protruding like elegant feathery tentacles or plumes of ruffles that look like flowers and leaves. Brilliantly colored, nudibranchs can be found in all the ocean's around the world in a rainbow of colors and patterns, striped, spotted and elaborately adorned!

Nudibranchs and sea slugs can be identified by a pair of highly sensitive Rhinophores located at their front, which help it identify prey and navigate the aquatic landscape. All nudibranchs are carnivores, but usually have very specific food sources. Some have very fascinating adaptations; for example, a few species have learned how to prey on algae and steal their chloroplasts (the green cells in algae that enable photosynthesis). They then push these chloroplasts out into their flesh, and harness the power of the sun to sustain themselves! Others have learned to protect themselves by eating stinging celled animals called cnidaria, stealing the nematocysts (stingers) and incorporate them into their body to fend off predators.

Fully detailed, brightly colored, and sparkly - now I have to decide if I want to mix and match these with other nudibranchs or with my pride snails...

BLOWN AWAY by how gorgeous these earrings are. I got the darker/more saturated version of the nudibranch earrings, and I love them. Can't wait to rock these 24/7!!

These are a delight! Huge compliment magnets in general, I'd have to rate these 5 stars alone for how much other people have gushed about these since I started wearing them. The craftsmanship is great, and they're light enough adjust to different positions if you want them to look more crawly. Thumbs up for days!
