Seashore Specimine.

I will be making two posts this weekend one depicting my latest piece of work and the other about the piece of work which is to become my second giveaway, tune in a little later for more on that.

One of my favourite places to explore as I'm sure with many of you is the beach, i usually find the time to take at least 2 or 3 long weekend trips a year but this year has been so busy with work and such i have found it difficult so am long overdue.

I do apologise for the out of focus shot, this tiny little crab measures just 1inch across from the tip of each leg, encased in resin and mounted into a walnut case i am pleased with the way it turned out.

                         The overall dimensions of the case are 1.5'' in height x 2'' wide and 1'' deep.

This piece will be available on my for sale page. I have a few more ideas for pieces similar to this and look forward to seeing how they turn out and hopefully sharing them with you all.
Don't forget to check my journal/Blog over the weekend as i will be showing what will be up for grabs in my second giveaway.
A warm welcome to my new followers, and many thanks for taking an interest in my journal/Blog and the piece i make.
Catch you all soon.   Tony.


  1. Oh, I love this! What a wonderful idea! :D

  2. Wow, it´s great! I like the strong contrast between your wonderful dark wood and the white crab, it almost seems as if it was illuminated :-)

  3. I have been away for a while from blog -land so I have a lot to read.
    But jeeh!! what make you beautiful and special things the last few months.
    The crab, I find great.
    I live close to the beach, less than 10 minutes away with car and I see very often this kind of skeletons.
    Usually only the major parts, the feet there are often already rinsed.
    All showcases are beautiful of all your work.
    Greetings, Alexandra.

    Un abrazo
    GRACIAS por no tener palabra de verificación

  5. Hi Tony! I now see in my updates your post of this beautiful walnut case. It reminds me of the sea, where I was born. As a child of the sea I now live in the eastside of Holland, far away of my beloved sea. A few times in a year I go back to my roots, to "meet" the North Sea..... It is pure nostalgia to look at this little crab in his gorgeous walnut case.
    Thank you for sharing this with all of us.
    Have a great week(end). Greetings, Ilona
