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.

Comments about MOTHER & DAUGHTER NECKLACES - SET OF 2:

I loved that my daughter bought us the mother/daughter monkey pendants. She's been my "monkey" her whole life. It's how her dad and I always refered to her.
And I do love that we have matching pendants...she got these for us right before she turned 18...but honestly, they look more like sloths than they do monkeys.

              My now two-year-old daughter (and husband) gave the bunny set to me last Christmas. The set is very cute -- we usually wear it on days when I have to work and we are just missing each other. She's just discovered the concept of "matching," and is very proud every time we wear them. The mother necklace is very sturdy, but the daughter's necklace is on a more delicate jump ring -- we lost the pendant, but Uncommongoods has been wonderful about securing a replacement (amazing customer service)! The necklace lengths are also nice for a mother and child. It's a cute set -- not something "glitzy" or especially shiny or sparkly to wear to formal functions, but a cute, slightly quirky addition to any outfit, and all the sweeter when my daughter and I have them on and are together.

                  My daughter has always been my little monkey so I thought this would be a great gift for her and I to share. I love the concept of the product but both pendants arrived with a dull look and not the bright shiny silver appearance I expected. I tried to polish it with my jewelry cloth but it did not help. I am glad I purchased them on sale and therefore I feel they were "worth it".

                      This product was purchased for my mother and me. We wanted something that would "keep us together" even when we are not in the presence of one another. Since I have three pet rabbits, with much encouragement to get my first one from my mothers, the rabbit necklace set is ideal as our "bonding". They are very invigorating - you can't help but to smile when you see it. We absolutely love the set!

                      Service and delivery comments:

                      Prompt isn't the word to describe how efficient the service was extended to me - from ordering it over the phone to receiving it less than 48 hours later to the "how pleased I am" phone call I made upon receiving the product. All of it was exceptional, superior, far beyond, etc. There were even a few extras included (item boxed, then the box was put in this "cool" little recycled sweatshirt material bag)! I don't think I have ever been as satisfied with a product as I was with this one, and every aspect involved in receiving it. Thank you!

                        What do you get for a second child who isn't really old enough to appreciate Christmas? Something to treasure for years to come. My bunny has been tugged on, teethed on ... you name it ... and it's holding up beautifully. Keeps my daughter distracted and makes a nice everyday accessory for me. And when she's a bit older, she'll have a lovely keepsake - a necklace just like Mom's. I love it. And I hope one day she will too.

                        Artist Mark Poulin's animal designs always make us smile, and this design is extra special. The sterling silver monkeys come as a pair! Moms, would you buy this matching set for you and your daughter? Daughters, would you love to surprise Mom with this unique gift?

                        Although we were thinking about calling these cute swinging animals monkeys (since they are more recognizable), we realized that our customers are looking for the uncommon and decided to go back to Mark Poulin's original plan and call these little ladies sloths. Do you love this playful pair?

                        Not cute at all! I LOVE original jewelry I can relate to, but I wouldn't give my daughter anything w/ the name 'sloth'..doesn't that mean lazy? Also, it's not cute (the shape, expression, etc.), and it looks like it's scratching its armpit...???

                        Glad you didn't call them monkeys - they look just like sloths. Which are adorable. Cute idea.

                        C'mon 2 necklaces for $60? I don't know why people are complaining, it's a very good price. And poor sloths - you're not lazy, you're just using your energy wisely!

                        They are cute, but I wouldn't wear one.

                        i dont really think anyone would want to wear a sloth necklace.

                        It is a cute little stylized version of a sloth however, I would be concerned buying it because of the fact that the hanging hand does not close. looks like it will eventually be lost. Why not just close the hand around the little circle? I don't know...also...I would only consider buying at that price if a portion of that went to some sort of organization that helped sloths or did something for them somehow.

                        Neither my daughter or I would wear this. It's not our style.

                        @everyone Thanks for the feedback! Sloths are the new Hedgehog! @ Mary Margret- white bronze is super strong so the hands won't open @the chain comments- this chain is so nice, it's strong, has great weight and allows me to keep the price affordable. Keep those comments coming,I'm really interested in the people who think Sloths are and are not cute. And why?

                        I like the sloths and think they are super cute. But I don't think necklaces are the way too go. These would look better as earrings and sure to inspire conversation. I love the white bronze for material...silver plating, not so much.

                        I really love the concept, but I think I would like it more if it wasn't a sloth.

                        I lived in Panama for a little while and these guys were all over! In real life they are a stinky nuisance, but very cute here!.

                        The last thing I'd associate my daughter or mother with is a sloth... Really? A sloth? I get the whole uncommon thing, but what about an animal with more outgoing and appealing characteristics?

                        It looks high quality and I like the idea. Not a big fan of sloths. Pandas would have been nice.

                        They're cute, but expensive, and I agree with some commenters that 'sloth' isn't really the moniker most moms or daughters would want. I know a lot of people call their little ones 'monkey' though, perhaps a name change - and a slight price reduction - would help?

                        This makes me laugh! I so want one. Not sure my mom would wear it (she likes diamonds), but I would! and if I had a little one I would buy him/her one :) Price isn't bad for 2 necklaces, it's unisex, and it's made in the US. Thumbs up!
