OUR NEW CEPHALOPOD

6a0105364db45b970c0133ed62a1aa970b-800wi

While Jane and I were in Tokyo, Karen was busy at home, working on the newest belt buckle.  I'm so excited to unveil the Octopus!  

Octo belt

Octo detail 

For everyone that ordered beetles, they are ready to ship.  We will begin invoicing on Monday.  

If you are interested in the Octopus, his price is $750, and he measures 6 1/2 by 4 inches.  This is the original cast piece, so subsequent castings will be a wee tad smaller.  The buckle weighs just a little over a pound.  Will ship with black leather belt that is 2 inches wide.  We are ordering 15 for our first go around.  You can shoot me an e-mail.  judy@judyaldridge.com

Hope everyone has a great weekend planned!

    Hi Judy, totally unrelated but I just saw Jane’s new post featuring your gorgeous re-decorated living room! The old style was so serene and calm and this new decor immediately made me think of Chanel’s apartment on rue cambon. Were you inspired after your visit? Love the gold, bronze, lucite and mirrored surfaces and that huge lamp is just fabulous!

    ClaraAnne–You’re so right–I was completely inspired by Chanel’s apartment. I loved how their were so many things in her rooms that had so much meaning to her.

    Truly beautiful! Reminds me of Jane’s blog header πŸ™‚ The type of creation that makes me think “but of course! How is it possible that this doesn’t already exist?!”

    I have to admit I was not a fan of the beetle at the beginning, kinda looks too heavy for me…
    but Mr. Pulpo is AAAAMAAAZING!!!!
    Congratulations to the artist
