What a wonderful and loving gift!  He is a lucky guy to have a friend who would put so much heart into a project for him.

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the shrimp - how hard are they to do? I have never seen a pattern for shrimp origami before and I'm gettin' ideas. . .

*squeal* thank you all so much! I'm excited to see what he thinks of it!

The shrimps are super easy to do. The first one seems challenging, but these are soooo easy to make! The tiny ones were just as easy as using a whole sheet of origami paper.

That is so creative....and well, totally awesome! I would have never have thought of it in a million years. Sometimes words just don't seem to express the true feeling of looking at a piece of art for the 1st time. This is it. I'm in awe...... and I am so jealous of your friend. He will be just slack-jawed for this once-in-a-lifetime gift. Want one of my own. (Can we be friends, too?  Wink) Wisting this!

I totally felt that way the first time I saw one! This one is mine now (squeal) and it inspired me so much. Now I'm doing one just out of polymer clay!

To all wondering... I am completely gob smacked and I'm at a loss for words. I had no idea you were making this, and I AM SO HONORED. Despite all my training and the amazing artists I've met, Teapot, you are by far the most creative and industrious person I have ever met. This gift is beyond amazing. I only hope that one day I will be able to give you a gift as wonderful as this... and I still owe you for your amazing Muppet box.

PS: if this isn't for me I'm really embarrassed, but how many gay silversmiths, who grew up on the coast, who loves your 3 three legged wiener dog, and that you gave a cast iron enamel pot to for Christmas can you know?
