Scuba Diving Instructor – Learn To Dive
I became a certified PADI Scuba Instructor in October, 2000. This gave me the opportunity to: teach scuba diving, lead dive travel to some of the most exotic destinations in the world, and create some wonderful underwater photography images. I’ve been fortunate that some of my underwater photography has been published in the industry’s leading dive magazines.
Ocean Sands Jewelry – Prehistoric Megalodon Teeth, Shark Teeth, Manatee Bone & Whale Bone. Bracelets, Necklaces, Earrings & Key Chains
As a result of my passion for scuba diving, I began hunting for fossils like megalodon and shark teeth, manatee/dugong and whale bone. They range from 2.5 to 26 million years ago. After amassing a lot of these prehistoric specimens, the idea for Ocean Sands jewelry was born. That’s when in addition to my other skills, I became a jeweler.
Bone specimens are cut, ground and polished. The shark and megalodon teeth get cleaned and polished. Each specimen is evaluated before being hand crafted into a necklace, bracelet, earrings and keychains. Each design is different so no two will ever be the same.
These unique hand made pieces of jewelry can be purchased in the tom-szabo.com on-line store. making ideal gifts for friends, family or yourself.
Home Town Notecards
Notecards, Note Cards, Blank, envelope, Photo Cards, Any occasion, message, special, event, personal, hand written, hand made,
Since I was a photographer, someone suggested that I create a line of note cards.
The first series of notecards features local iconic buildings and points of interest in Painesville, Ohio. Additional locations have been added to the catalog. The cards are blank allowing you to express your thoughts in a message hand written by to that special someone. Whether is be a special person or a special event in their life, your message makes the notecard unique. Commercial greeting cards often do not convey your feelings to your satisfaction.

Elegant Wood Products currently includes Elegant Flights and Elegant Carrier. Elegant Flights is a liquor sampling kit for your favorite liquor (Bourbon, Gin, Rum, Tequila, Vodka). It includes a hardwood tray with glasses. The Elegant Carrier in two styles will hold 2 or 4 wine glasses and rest on the neck of a wine bottle.
