Dryad Design, Ltd is the "soul work" of artist Paul Borda. All designs are original, many are based on extensive research and all are copyrighted. Our statues and jewelry include God and Goddess imagery from Celtic, Norse, Russian and Sumerian Mythology.
The statues are resin, but because many of the originals are wood you can see the chisel marks and the grain of the wood in many of the castings. Paul is primarily a wood carver, but some of the statues were actually carved in stone. See if you can tell the difference!
Please view the slide shows to watch the carving process reveal the final image. The average statue takes 300-500 hours of carving time to complete and that is not counting the design and research!
Our jewelry is made of sterling silver, gold vermeil and copper the designs are mostly inspired by Paul's statues. However, lately some jewelry designs have been inspiring the statue line! It is with deep gratitude and enjoyment that we offer our work to you.
Enjoy and please give us feedback on what you would like or would like to see! Blessed Be - Suzanne & Paul
