So glad I bought these! This is my second pair of tentacle earrings from Something Like That, and I will be purchasing more as I find ones I like. They're well made, they look great, people compliment them all the time, and my first pair was purchased two or three years ago and still look like new. Shipping was fast and Deirdre is great!

I absolutely love the Cthuhlu pendant I ordered! Deirdre was so wonderful to work with, prompt in all of her responses, and very efficient. I highly look forward to working with her again for future custom orders. The shipping was really fast, and the packaging was superb. The pendant (which came with a chain) was even in its own wooden box, which is perfect because I intend to give this necklace to my boyfriend as a gift. Absolutely amazing experience with this seller. Thank you so much, Deirdre!

Had a baby Cthulhu necklace custom made for a friend for Christmas/New Years. It came out beautifully, and she absolutely loved it! Was a pleasure working with this talented artist, and will definitely be back for more! She puts so much care into her creations, as well as into the details of packaging them. Thank you so much!

A Turn and A Twist

To start this story ill begin where things took a turn for the worst.

I had always thought that I would peruse a career in a scientific field as a researcher or working with animals as a vet but In my third year of studies as a Biology major I got news that would end up careening my life in a different and darker route. My father was diagnoses with prostate cancer and for 3 years I stayed in school while during the summers I would go home and spend as much time as i could with him while helping out where I could. As the years went on the cancer started winning and life got very dark and very hard. Eventually we lost him, and I lost a lot of the life I had had previous to the diagnosis.

I got depressed but stayed in university, completed my biology degree, however I was no longer looking toward a future in that field any more and I found the beginning of a new goal. My dad had always said that I made him smile through the years via my art or humour and that I needed to always keep that and never forget it. Well I did after he passed and it took my university messing up my credits causing me to take another year that I found that smile again. (P.S. by the end of my degree I was over educated, I still laugh about it today)

I took an art class, and during that year in that class I found that spark and smile again and I started sculpting (driven by a student budget and a crazy idea of never sculpted before so lets make presents!) From that crazy idea I found that I really enjoyed it and started creating new and crazy things because they made me smile and they made other people smile around me.

That right there started this crazy little shop. My creations made me smile and spread the smiles. They are loud and bright, or just plain weird to some, but to me they are fun and that is all the motivation I need to design them. I have found that tentacles and Octopus or Cephalopods tend to captivate me and cause many design ideas. People have asked me why tentacles, Why Octopuses? My honest answer is "Why Not?" or " Cause They Are Awesome!"

I do do other sculptures but once the cephalopods began hogging all the space in my head ill got to designing them more often. Everything I make is hand done using Polymer clay, few to no moulds are used (moulds are only used on small details or a prop item that the sculpture holds. They are all 100% unique and one of a kind. An they all carry their own little quirky personalities that are sure to spread a smile to you or to those around.

Thank you for taking the time to read this!

    I create the unique because they make my day brighter with a solid laugh and smile, it is my goal to spread that to others. Each piece is one of a kind and will never have a duplicate as I hand sculpt each one from a brick of clay to completion
