Sea Creatures Chess Set 1 by MyrHansen Sea Creatures Chess Set 1 by MyrHansen
My gift to my mother this Mother's Day - a handmade chess set, featuring an array of sea critters.

I've been wanting to do something like this for a while, and I almost did it last year but didn't have the time or the resources. Thankfully when my computer died last week I finally had enough free time - but a lot less money, what with the computer fix and everything... - to do it.

Pieces were made with polymer clay and acrylic paints, board was cut from pine and painted in acrylics; the beads on the corners are glass.

Kings: Humpback whale and Squid
Queens: Orca whale and Octopus
Bishops: Angelfish and Sea turtles
Knights: Dolphins and Shrimp
Rooks: Sea anemones and Barnacles
Pawns: Starfish and Clams
