Marilyn Ure of Lake City Glass specializes in lamp work sea creature jewelry designs.  She particularly loves making octopuses (octopuses is the correct plural rather than octopi).  Working with molten glass takes care and skill let alone having to add so many curling appendages!

Her lamp working skills are showcased in the myriad hues and glass effects of her designs.  They shimmer and sparkle and some have beautiful iridescence! She does color changing octopuses too.

Her  mini octopus earrings which are not much larger than quarters were created with traditional lamp working tools - no molds.

Marilyn also makes whale tails, fish, jellyfish, turtle, mermaids and mermaid tale pendants!  Another marvelous design is her reusable glass straws complete with her signature octopus!
