"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.

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 can't thank Cheyenne enough for her artistic heart, her incredibly accommodating and professional customer service, fair pricing, and for creating such a perfectly magical ring. This ring is really beyond what I imagined. The roses are soooo perfectly shaped, different from each other, natural looking and are carved together in such a harmonious way. I can't stop examining it.. the delicate details are truly outstanding... I look at it and feel like the roses are coming to life! nWe were a bit nervous ordering the ring online, but we had no choice as Cheyenne's work just captured us, and what a pleasant surprise it was to find that she is such a professional artist who truly understands the concept of customer service. nShe answered ALL my questions, before and after my purchase, with much patience. Making me feel safe in my purchase. Delivered it right on time before my travels.. and was and is available to me through the whole process! nI HIGHLY recommend buying from this seller!! You will not regret it! nTHANK YOU! ♥♥♥

I absolutely can not rave enough about this experience with Cheyenne. There are so many beautiful engagement rings on Etsy, but the intricate detailing on this one stood out immediately. Once we began communicating, I knew that I had made the right choice. Throughout the entire process Cheyenne was kind, patient, and took plenty of time to answer all of our questions and make sure we would get exactly what we wanted. She went above and beyond my expectations as far as customer service. But, oh - the ring!! It's beautiful. Just ridiculously beautiful. The metalwork is intricate and so unique. This ring is delicate, simple but ornate, modern yet classic...exactly what I was looking for in a piece of jewelry that I hope to wear every day forever. I am so happy with this purchase and just can't stop staring at it:) I highly recommend Cheyenne and hope to own more of her amazing jewelry.

Cheyenne was extremely helpful and accommodating! The rose bramble ring I ordered was just a tad too tight when paired with my engagement ring. Cheyenne resized it perfectly and shipped it with plenty of time to spare for our wedding. I can't wait to wear it!
