Happy New Year!

The Figural Seahorse Nutcracker is complete!  I think this is my favorite nutcracker Brandon has created to date.  This nutcracker is an Ardoria Studios Original design.  It is wonderfully detailed and the finish makes it look like an aged nutcracker.  Brandon also made a shell stand specially for the nutcracker.IMG_8427

This nutcracker is being placed on Ebay for auction.  Click on the link to check out the auction.

I will be sad to see this one go but I am happy that friends and family were able to see it this holiday season.  I just loved it on our mantle, it looked wonderful!

The Fox Whip Holder is officially done!  I think it turned out beautifully.  It is a spectacular piece.  This is a piece that I am going to be sad to see go back to it’s home.  Here is a before and after picture…
