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.

it looks like the animals are mounted as a trophy head...like a hunter's trophy. wouldn't wear it for my dogs.

kristy

laura
Vote: Thumbs down!

just not into animal jewlery

Sara
Vote: Thumbs down!

A little creepy...like mounting a deer head only it's your pet represented.

Judy
Vote: Thumbs down!

too expensive for a kid, too childish for an adult

Julianne
Vote: Thumbs down!

no

Eileen
Vote: Thumbs up!

They are very cute but I would agree with the comments below, a bit creepy.I might purchase one for a cat or dog lover.

Laurel

I'm an animal lover, but agree with others that these are a little creepy. Don't want to wear mounted heads.

Rebecca
Vote: Thumbs down!

To close to a hunting trophy.

ELLEN
Vote: Thumbs up!

I love them. They're not to expensive for an eight year old grandaughter. Hope I can order one soon.

Katie
Vote: Thumbs down!

mounted pet heads? um... strange

yoanna

it's cute, but too expensive -- especially for sterling silver.

Renee
Vote: Thumbs down!

Regarding what others have stated here, I'm not opposed to these for the same reasons, especially since the name or title clearly states "Trophy Dog and Cat Necklaces." There will be pet lovers who are not 'creeped out' by them.Since they're "cameo-inspired," I think the design should be more classy, and less cartoon looking.

KAREN
Vote: Thumbs up!

Unique - reasonably priced;)

Ruth
Vote: Thumbs down!

I think that if it was just the head it would be cute, but it looks a little weird as a trophy head.

Jenny
Vote: Thumbs up!

Read the trophy comments and that was not what I saw when I looked at them. I saw more of a Victorian "ruff" collar. Ha ha. Liked them.

Kathryn
Vote: Thumbs up!

really cute! A tad pricey

erin
Vote: Thumbs up!

Wicked cute!

Meredith
Vote: Thumbs up!

the animals are cute but the mounting is kind of creepy

Beth
Vote: Thumbs down!

Looks a little flimsy.

Cheri
Vote: Thumbs up!

cute, but a bit creepy. i dont like the thought of the word "trophy"

Janet
Vote: Thumbs down!

eh

Lynn

A $25 charge would be more in line

Katy
Vote: Thumbs up!

Adorable! Good price!

Mary
Vote: Thumbs down!

Not wearing animal trophies

Carole

looks like a taxidermist made them!

Ginger

What Sara said.

Ruth
Vote: Thumbs down!

Not into pets.

bonnie
Vote: Thumbs down!

a little too silly looking

Dama
Vote: Thumbs down!

This is just too strange looking. I want this to be the pet looking out of a window, but instead looks as though it is a mounted pet head. A little too creepy for me.

Brooke
Vote: Thumbs up!

Cute, I would definately wear the dog one to show that I am a dog person...

Alicia
Vote: Thumbs down!

Just not my taste.

audrey

hideous!

Maria
Vote: Thumbs up!

Cute

Mariana
Vote: Thumbs up!

A resounding thumbs up!! This is ADORABLE!!

Kathryn
Vote: Thumbs up!

unique

Sarah
Vote: Thumbs down!

If the frame looked like a window or door, it would be adorable...but as it is, kind of creepy

Heather
Vote: Thumbs down!

I wish it were just the dog/cat head inside the frame (like a portrait) instead of the neck AND head too much like a hunting trophy. Otherwise, I think it's adorable.

morris
Vote: Thumbs up!

i would like you to bring electronics on here.Especially mobile phones.iphone4

Carla
Vote: Thumbs down!

I think this is disgusting. Cats' and dogs' heads set up as trophies. Ewww!

Myrica
Vote: Thumbs up!

This is really cute and disturbing at the same time. If you don't think of it too much then its adorable, but when you think of trophy heads it has a feeling of creepiness as the others have said.

I love all the comments! I tried to make these "creepy-cute" with a big dose of humor. Who needs a trophy husband or wife when you can wear your trophy pet!

Chel

so cute!

Kathleen

uncommomly cute

Joyce
Vote: Thumbs up!

Brilliant!! Lovely details and a little wink-wink joke.

Sarah
Vote: Thumbs up!

My favorite trophies! Woof and meow.

Sue
Vote: Thumbs up!

I wouldn't wear them myself, but I might buy them for an animal lover friend. I don't think "trophy head" first though. I thought they were just meant to look 3-D.

Veronica

Adorable! I like that they aren't specific to any breed of dog, so I could get one for my mixed breed.

Holly
Vote: Thumbs up!

cute

MIRIAM
Vote: Thumbs down!

It looks like the animals are mounted as a trophy head...like a hunter's trophy.

Hannah
Vote: Thumbs up!

Trophy-pet...love it like my trophy-husband. ;-)

Karen
Vote: Thumbs down!

Maybe for a child, but not for an adult.

Mary K
Vote: Thumbs up!

Although not my style, these are still cute.

Rachelle
Vote: Thumbs up!

Very cute! I would totally wear them. It's funny because you wouldn't really mount a cat or dog's head. The humor is a little morbid but I don't mind that.

Kristi
Vote: Thumbs down!

Not for adults...kind of tacky

mindy
Vote: Thumbs up!

Very cute, great price point.

Xena
Vote: Thumbs down!

So tacky

Carla
Vote: Thumbs up!

I believe animal lovers all over will enjoy this.

Shiela

Beautiful!

Robin
Vote: Thumbs down!

Nothing special, and too pricey!

Sarah
Vote: Thumbs down!

Honestly, this is just creepy.
