Natural Icon

At Natural Icon Designs I make original mixed media paintings and handmade jewellery with a focus on semi precious gemstones, bone, amber, wood and freshwater pearls. I take pride in creating every piece in Calgary Alberta Canada. Unless otherwise noted all pieces are one of a kind.



Blue Ocean


Blue Ocean


This Sacred Seahorse is the epitome of the ocean's blue soul. This natural icon serenely travels the seas in search of sustenance and communion. The seahorse represents for some good luck and for some unique and magical qualities.

This is a mixed media, multi process work with many layers of detail. I draw the image, burn the image into the wood, gold and silver leaf parts of it and then paint it, sand it, paint it again and then seal it. The result is an image with visual texture, reflective qualities and a rustic feel. The wood is birch, there is a hanging device on the top and the sides are painted and sealed as well. This piece is 6 x 6 inches and 1.5 inches deep or 15 x 15 x 4 cm The sides are painted and it does not need to be framed. It can even stand by itself on a shelf or display cabinet.
