Lovely Metal Animals that Wrap Around Your Finger by Michael Tatom

Starting out as a jeweler in a retail store, Michael Tatom began carving stone on the side in his brother’s studio. Tatom became fascinated with creating animal forms, especially the details needed to perfect each creature’s muscle definition. Tatom then moved on to casting the forms in bronze, and at the request of his wife started the online store of beasts and beauty. He has now transitioned to producing his animal rings, bracelets, and pendants nearly full-time and often takes requests for custom orders. A recent project gave him the chance to cast the shape of the rare pangolin in the form of a silver ring. You can see more of Tatom’s foxes, wolves, and cats on his Etsy. (via Bored Panda)
