"Got a whale of a tale to tell you, lads.
A whale of a tale or two.
'Bout the flapping fish and the girls I've loved,
On nights like this with the moon above.
A whale of a tale and it's all true--
I swear by my tattoo." ***
My brother and I had a VCR copy of '20,000 Leagues Under the Sea' when we were kids and we watched it countless times. I always thought the submarine was supercool, but the giant squid needed work (granted, the movie was made in the 50s). I put a little of my idealized undersea monster in this design but softened the edges up with a little art-nouveau styling. I've been looking at a lot of Japanese woodcuts lately as well, and I feel like some of this also seeped into the design.
This ring is a highly detailed piece with the squid and water/wave design flowing all the way around the ring, leaving no particular part "up." It is a nice 8mm in width, over 2mm thick, and has a delicious weighty feel.

My ring is absolutely stunning! Mine is a size 8 in 14k white gold - this piece was incredibly important to me in memoriam to my Dad, we planted a ginkgo tree for him. I would highly recommend this shop to anyone, they really took my story and what I was looking for heart!
Oh... my... god... my jaw hit the floor when I opened my package yesterday and I got to finally see her beautiful face in person. Emily (that's what I named her 😜) is more gorgeous than I ever could have imagined her to be. And Cheyenne is amazing. She kept me updated through every step of the process, even sending me pictures along the way. Shipping was amazing, she arrived the day after she was shipped. I wouldn't change one single thing about this whole process and I am overly in love. I think I've found my soulmate 😍💙💙💙💎✨💍
I am beyond thrilled with my ring! Cheyenne was incredible to work with: patient, responsive, and transparent. I was shopping for an upgrade to my wedding rings when my originals no longer fit after two pregnancies (couldn’t be resized: tension set). She answered all my questions promptly and comprehensively. Her production time was reasonable, and the final product is stunning! Without hesitation, I highly recommend Cheyenne :)
Absolutely beautiful! Ordered this as my wedding band, it is beautifully crafted; with amazing detail, very unique. I am extremely pleased with everything, from the fit to the weight. Thank you!
