Mark Poulin

Raised in Haverhill, Massachusetts, artist Mark Poulin headed west to live in California. He soon discovered the Oakland Recreational Center, where he received his art education, and began sketching constantly. Now his simple line drawings are finding their way into his jewelry. "It looks like cute is here to stay!" he says.

"When I think a piece is finished, I let is sit for a couple of days without peeking at it, then I give it another look to see if I can take it further. But most times, I edit it down to simplify the piece...Less is more."

"Making the Zodiac 'cute' was a tough but fun project," he says. "With all those horned animals and crustacea, it took a few tries to make them sweet and contemporary." Mark is an Aquarius, the water bearer, which he interpreted as a bear sitting in a bucket of water. "Like most Aquarians, I can see the future."

Mark lives in Oakland, California and has an addiction to playing Facebook Scrabble.

      She's not a bit jewelry person so she put the necklace on her rear view mirror. The necklace that holds the pendant is like thick fishing wire and was a little unforgiving. The pendant itself was cute and well made.

        We always struggle to find something appropriate for my daughter's friends who are now officially "tweens". This was perfect for her buddy the dog lover. not too childish and not too grownup. It's a fun accessory even for someone who is not a girly girl. Love it!

        The necklace chain was a cheap piece of wire. I think I have learned my lesson and that is not to buy any more necklaces from Uncommon goods. As much as this stuff cost you would think it would be a smart, good quality purchase. Really unhappy.
