Jim and Tori Mullan
Jim and Tori Mullan met at an art show in 1985-soon they discovered that they shared many of the same interests in old watches, jewelry and antiques and combined their individual talents to form a partnership in work and in life.
Jim, a self-taught artist, grew up in Southern California. His enthusiasm for nature and history, along with his interest in taking things apart and putting them back together, inspired Jim to create mixed media jewelry and assemblages.
Tori's passion for antiques and jewelry also began at a young age. Her father, a jeweler and watch collector inspired her, and while working at his store in Florida, she set her sights on designing jewelry.
In the years since they met, the couple's collections of jewelry, boxes, mirrors and sculptures have been featured in galleries worldwide.

Comments about CAT LOVERS WISH BOX:
This little box is very cute but is so tiny that I'm not sure what could actually fit inside. I bought it for someone who loves cats and I'm sure she will appreciate it, but I am definitely worried about its purpose other than to look at --and with a magnifying glass at that. (For example, I tried putting a ring of mine inside and it wouldn't even fit!).
Here's the thing: The dimensions listed are inaccurate. I also would not even look at the photo, because it is about 500% bigger than the actual thing. If you want a more accurate size, look at the thumbnail. It's really about that big: the size of a matchbox. As for it being 1" in height, it's not. It's about 6/10 of an inch. I measured it. As for actual usable space inside the box, it's about a half-inch.
As for the claim that you could store "jewelry, notes and other tokens of affection" inside...well, other than those of the Lilliputian variety, I don't see it happening.
Bottom line, if you want to spend that much plus shipping and taxes, go for it. It could make a reasonably good supplementary (i.e., 3rd) gift.
