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 ZODIAC CHARM NECKLACE:

    I bought this necklace for an astrologer friend who was graduating from an intense year-long yoga training program. She was absolutely crazy about it. Within the first few days of wearing it, she received compliments from 3 different people. She hasn't taken it off since. I had tried it on before I sent it to her but it was a bit snug around my neck...but for her, it was perfect. I would highly recommend this unusual and unique gift, either for yourself or someone else.

        I ordered the Sagittarius pendant and found it to be a perfect size - not too big and obnoxious, not too small that you can't see what it is when it's being worn. The pendant is light-weight, not too heavy and looks great on the chain.

          This is a very cute and unique gift. even though it shipped from back east it is a "local" (we live in the bay area" artist, so it added to the piece.

          Service and delivery comments:

          The package was received well within the predicted times. well packaged and protected.

            This is the 2nd Zodiak charm that I have purchased, the first for my sister, and now this for my Mom. They absolutely love them, and tell me that they get several questions asking about them. Mom and sis like the quirkiness of the charms, and the fact that they're handmade.

            Comments about ZODIAC CHARM NECKLACE:

            I love the unique design of the pendant. It is thick and of good quality, and hangs nicely from the necklace. However, I am a size 14, and it is too tight on my neck. It comes on a thin wire (as advertised), but gets lost on a bigger girl like me! It is beautiful, but delicate. Probably best suited for a daintier girl :)

              Very unique, gets a ton of comments and compliments each and every day from my customers. I have the Leo charm, I'm not so fond of the other zodiac signs. The cord is great, it doesn't get caught in my hair.

                  I ordered this a week before Christmas for my wife. The shipping specifically said "not guaranteed by Christmas" which was ok with me. However the necklace did arrive before Christmas and it looks and feels great. My wife loves it.
