A native Floridian, Lori Strickland comes from a long line of ranchers and cowboys-"Old Florida," she calls it. "Before the mouse took over." Lori trained at the Gemology Institute of America and The Jeweler's Bench of Florida. While she was studying to become a designer, she met her husband, who was studying to become a manufacturer.

"We have the perfect relationship in many ways," Lori says. "Every designer needs a manufacturer and every manufacturer needs a designer."

The Stricklands have worked together for 15 years and have a 10-year-old daughter, who has designed jewelry and made wax models since she was six. She's even designing something to be featured in Lori's next collection. "We are a true family business," she says.

"My inspiration comes from the world around me. I tend to see things from a different angle than most people. I enjoy the irony and romance of life. Plain objects seem whimsical and I see things like the cork in the dog or flowers and plants that dance like ballerinas."

When she isn't busy with jewelry, Lori is taking her daughter to voice lessons or barefoot skiing when the weather is nice. The family also enjoys walking on the beach, surf fishing and playing with their two dachshunds.

    Comments about Cork Pets:

    I bought this cork pet for my mother as her kitchen has a theme around wine corks (she is a big wine drinker!) I think the product is definitely unique and since she loves wine and cats, I don't see how she won't love it. I just got married so I know she saved a cork from the family table from the wedding that she can use the cork pet to display it. Very pleased!

          I like the cork pet - I am partial to dachshunds -I have 2 as pets. The expression on the face is very lively like my female dachshund. I can't wait to find a special cork for my cork pet to hold!

            My vet helped me out in the final days of my dogs life and I needed to get her a special present. I knew how much she liked wine, so I bought her a bottle of "dog themed" wine and this "pet" to go with it. She liked it so much that she maybe getting her coworkers one as well. It is for the pet lover who has everything.

                I got this for me but will hold it in reserve as a gift for a cat and wine appreciator. It can also commemorate a special occasion and serve to hold the cork from the wine that was served.

                  I love these cork holders, they are cute and different. I have purchased the cat to hold the cork from the champagne toast for my daughters up coming wedding.
