"Creativity is when you come up with something when you see something." -Gerhard Uhlenbruck-
The first time I saw these beautiful South Sea Pearls I fell in love immediately. During the next 2 years I took them in my hands to get an idea for many times, no chance! One day I saw a picture of the legendary Baron Munchhausen riding the canonnball, and 'click', there it was: 2 little Octopussies riding South Sea pearls instead of cannonballs. Now I asked my friend Vincenzo to help me, 2 little Octopussies were created, beautifully handcarved from Corniola,together with some additional Fresh Water Pearls and blue Topazes: DEEP SEA RIDE became reality! Sometimes it needs more time to create what you want, but suddenly the solution will appear in a moment, you do not expect!
Turquoise and all treasures of the sea, such as Coral, Mother of Pearl, all kind of Pearls, Amber, Conch and Corniola, have to be protected from cosmetic, hairspray, soap, perfume, acid and extreme sun exposures. It can be cleaned under running lukewarm water with a very soft towel (please don't use microfiber). To avoid scratches please store jewels always separated from each other in the attached pouch.
