Description

I have long wanted to model a scorpion: what makes them scary to some, makes them irresistable to others - me included. I love watching different people's different reactions to my creations - and this little chap invokes some strong responses. Thankfully most people pick him up and say how splendid he is. What will you do?

He is handmade in sterling silver (hallmarked), modelled in wax from photographs (not cast from a real scorpion) and then cast into silver. He measures 45mm x 65mm x 25mm

I normally keep a scorpion ornament in stock and so can ship immediately. However, should I not have one available, leadtime is a maximum of 3 weeks.

Inspiration

Whenever I get inspired to create another piece it's often because the animal I am drawn to is really rather marvellous - perhaps it's their dramatic personality, or that they are structurally interesting - often both.

Well scorpions have these features in spades. They also glow in the dark, can live for up to a year without food and they are virtually indestructible.

And how wonderful to find that we have our own wild colony of yellow-tailed scorpions, nicknamed the Sheerness Scorpion, (on which this piece is based) here in Kent!
