Leather Octopus Cuff by SilverCicada Leather Octopus Cuff by SilverCicada
I made this as a gift for one of my friends who works with the marine biosphere for a living.  She just moved out of state for a dream job.  I'll miss her but she is spreading her awesome to new corners of the US now!

What an amazing way to start off the week.  This is my first DD!  Thank you so much SavageFrog and cakecrumbs for suggesting and featuring my work.  If you would like one for yourself or to just see what I have in stock, you are welcome to visit my ETSY store.  Thank you all for the love!!

It was meant to be a gift so I didn't really keep up with my time and supplies.  I'm working on going back and calculating a price.  Feel free to check my ETSY store over the next few days.  I should have a listing up soon for a custom order of this design.

Are you sure it isn't a live octopus that you glued to a piece of leather? It's very realistic, lolz Octopus for the animal project
