$40 Handpainted Art Jewelry Giveaway Certificate from Dolphin Daze

Samantha Kocsis is first and foremost an artist at heart.  It's in her genes as her mother is also an artist.  That is evident from her art jewelry store on Etsy called Dolphin Daze. The inspiration of her shop's name comes from her love of animals particularly dolphins!

Autumn and Summer Double Sided Pendant

She said, "I love just about every medium but am especially fond of painting, drawing and sculpting." Samantha also likes the unusual and unique so her pieces are one of a kind. Her creative output is prolific.  For example, she had so many versions of Goddess pendants that I had a hard time picking one!

She said, " I love nature and animals and find that they show up a lot in my artwork and designs. I am also a big Halloween fan and can find myself in the mood to do Halloween inspired art all year around. I take a lot of inspiration from things that are happening around me and can sometimes be inspired by books or a tv program that I have seen."


Samantha uses either the decoupage method for her prints or she hand paints directly on a product called Paper Clay. Her pieces are well sealed after. 
Many of her pieces feature animals.  Her great horned owl pendants are amazingly well done.  Perfect for any Harry Potter fan!


She is a gifted artist indeed.

Very classy and artistic work. I love every piece I've seen. Of course, my favorite is the wolf. Why? Because I am a wolf lover and this piece truly speaks to me. ~~Judy, AussenWolf Designs

So after struggling with the word verification and feeling like a robot because it took me 3 times before I got it right - I just realized that I forgot to put in my contact information on the very slight chance that my name is picked. (I'm not a winner sort of person and it makes me laugh every time I try!) :0)

But here goes anyway -

Definitely a subscriber. You post many great tutorials and ideas.

Looking at these piece make me want to consider using the paperclay product, that or just spruce up my polymer skills, painting with the clay glitter can give a similar look as these pendants.
